Health & Medication at School

Keeping our students healthy and safe at school is our priority. If your child may need special precautions due to an allergy, take medication at school, or access other health services, please help our school nurse and health room staff to provide the best care possible for your child. Information and forms are provided below for your reference, and to guide conversations with your child's healthcare providers.
