Host a German Teacher Next Fall During the 2-week Capstone Exchange

Health Office Update for Next Year

A little heads up from the Health Office for the coming school year:  If your child will need medication for the 2019-20 school year please find the information below:
  • For the administration of medication to a student during the school day we need written Medical Authorization of the Health care provider signed by the parent/guardian. Form can be found here.
  • Medication must be in original package, valid expiration date, labelled with students name.
  • At the Open night on Thursday, August 22nd, the school nurse, Frau Avery, will be available to receive the medication with the completed Authorization form.  
  • If you would like an appointment to drop off Medication/Authorization forms or plan how we can support your child during the school day please contact Frau Avery at mavery@tcgis.org or by calling 651-492-7106 ext. 294.
