Medication: Time To Pick-Up! & Don't Forget Your Care Plans!

Hello!

In the rush of preparing for the summer break, please remember to stop by the clinic and pick up any unused medication. Any medication (over-the-counter and prescription) left at school by the end of the last school day, May 25th, will be disposed of. I will be sending reminder letters home with the students on Monday, May 21st.

I have started to mail care plans and medication forms to parents with students who have asthma, allergies requiring epi pens, seizures, migraines, etc. Please remember to have these completed and returned to the school either during the summer or at the beginning of the upcoming school year. For further information regarding school health services, medication, and forms you can go to the Cobb County website http://www.cobbk12.org/schoolhealth/index.htm

If there is anything I can help with please feel free to email me over the summer break.
I hope everyone has a safe, healthy and fun summer! I look forward to seeing you next year!
