WELCOME BACK!

As we start each new school year I ask that you please make sure all paperwork is handed in to the Nurse’s office during the first week of school. If you need copies of any forms, they can be found on this webpage.

We do have some students who are still in need of exams and vaccinations ( I will contact you personally). If you need help financially with doctor’s visits, please contact me as their services available.

NURSE’S NOTE
