FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE: Medication Pick up

If you child has any medication in the Health Office it will need to be picked up by the end of the school year. Any medication left in the office will have to be discarded (the Board of Health prohibits storing over the summer). If you would like the medication to be sent home in your student’s backpack please let us know. Thank you!

Library Books Due soon

Next week will be the last week that students will be able to check out library materials. Library classes will still be held, and students are welcome to look at books while they are at school. If you are curious as to what materials might still be checked out under your student's name, please contact our librarian Jeanne McCullough.
