MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL
If your child has medications here at school, you may pick up all unused medications on June 17, 2019, the last day of school, or you may call the school to make other arrangements. According to State of CT school regulations, all unused and discontinued medications shall be removed from the storage area and either returned to the parent or destroyed. All medications will be destroyed on June 22nd if they have not been picked up or if you have not made other arrangements with the school.
Please remember that if your child will need medication here at school next year, new forms need to be filled out this summer by both you and your health care provider. If your child had medication here at school this year, I have sent a reminder with new medication forms for the upcoming school year home with him/her. Please check backpacks if you did not receive the information.

We have many items in the Lost & Found area in the front hallway of the school. Please check to see if anything belongs to your child. Anything left during the summer will be given to a charity.
