Please plan to pick up any unused medication(s) that your child has in the nurse's office by the last day of school, Friday, June 7th.  Medication cannot be sent home with students. 

If your child has medication here that they no longer are using, stop by this week to pick it up.

By school policy we are required to discard/ destroy all remaining medication whether nonprescription or prescription which has not been taken home. The school cannot store any medication for the summer programs or for the following school year.

Thank you for your cooperation in maintaining a safe environment for our students. If you have any questions or concerns, or need to plan for pickup outside my hours - 9.30am-4pm - please connect with School Nurse Hanne Kim at 952-988-4213 or
