Happy June!

With the end of the school year quickly approaching, please remember to pick up your student’s medications that are kept in the clinic. No medication can be left in the clinic over the summer. All unclaimed medication will be disposed of after the last day of school.

Paperwork for EpiPens, Inhalers, and all other medications can be found on the Aquinas website. All medications requiring a prescription must have the appropriate paperwork filled out by a physician before being brought to the clinic for the new school year.

All Aquinas students planning to participate in an Aquinas sport next school year are required to have a complete  Aquinas Sports Physical which can be found on the Aquinas Website. The physical needs to be dated on or after June 1, 2018.

With the warm weather finally arriving, please encourage your students to stay hydrated. Also, teachers and staff are unable to provide or apply sunscreen to students. If your child requires sunscreen, please apply it before school. This is especially important for Field Day on June 13 and any outdoor field trips.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the nurses any time.

Have a safe and restful summer break!

God Bless,

 

Staying Healthy

Allergies continue to be in full swing as you can see by the beautiful trees blooming. If your child takes seasonal allergy medication, it should be regularly administered during this time of year. Continue to remind students of good hygiene and frequent hand washing to prevent the spread of germs.

All medication, including cough drops, must be kept in the clinic with the appropriate paperwork completed. Over the counter medication paperwork can be found on the website and only needs to be completed by a parent or guardian.
