Dear parents/guardians,
This message is a reminder of a couple of health office items that may need your attention.
1). All medications must be picked up by a parent or guardian no later than the close of the school day - 3 pm on June 15, 2021. Please contact the school nurse at 860-347-2978 to arrange the pick-up of the remainder of your children’s medication. Mediations cannot be sent home with children. Items left behind will be disposed of per State of CT Medication Administration regulations.
2). Updated physical exams and immunization records are due prior to entry in grades pre-K, Kindergarten, and 7. Complete and updated physical exams and immunization records dated after June 1, 2020, will be accepted for the 2021-22 school year. Please be sure to complete and sign the first page of the Health Assessment Record and submit it to the school nurse at your earliest convenience to avoid delays at the start of the new school year this coming Fall.
Water bottle reminder.
Warm days are here. Please remember to send in a water bottle to school with your child every day so that they have water to sip throughout the day. They can be refilled at school.

School Nurse

School supplies for the 2021-2022 school year
The deadline for taking advantage of this is June 25th

Last year we were all locked up at home and we gave this company a try. The program received such a positive response we are doing it again.

School Supplies may not be optional, but ordering from this is.

Enjoy the convenience of having all supplies shipped to the school and ready for the first day! Hard copies can be printed from the shopttkits site.
