This will be the last MS note for the year. The 8th grade graduation was awesome, congrats to all those great kids, you will be missed. Paw Sox Stem Day was equally as awesome for grades 5-7. The 5th and 7th grade field trips and of course Field Day are on the horizon and should be great too. On Field Day hot dogs and chips will be served for lunch outside for $5.00.  To all our students remember DFTBA!!! (Don’t Forget to be Awesome).

A Note From Guidance
Important Message to the Parents of the Rising Senior Class:
Dear Parents of the Rising Senior Class,

Congratulations, your children have made it to their final year of high school and will soon be off to college!

A lot of exciting things will be happening this coming school year! Along with this excitement comes a lot of hard work. To prepare our rising seniors for the hard work that comes along with the college application process the Guidance Department at Coyle and Cassidy has created a timeline of what to expect each month during their senior year. Parents and students should review, this time line and make themselves familiar with each months goals. Rising seniors should already be working on their brag sheets and are encouraged to start the common application this summer.

Additionally, this year, I will be creating a google classroom that the entire Senior class will have access to. In this classroom, students will be able to ask questions to myself and their peers. More importantly, I will be posting regularly to remind them of upcoming important dates and will post important documents such as their "Senior Timeline".

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with each of your children and seeing them reach their goals.

Thank you,  

Alexandra Araujo 
High School Guidance Counselor 
Please Keep in Mind:
Coyle and Cassidy Guidance Department has an open door policy. If any student wishes to speak with Ms. Araujo or Ms. LaPann, please stop by in the morning and ask for a pass from Mrs. Chaves. We are ALL here to help support the students academic success & emotional wellness. Thank you!

An Important Message From Jo’Ann Allen RN BSN MEd
Dear Parent/ Guardian,

         The end of the school year is fast approaching. Please note that your child has medication in school that needs to be picked up no later than the day school ends. This year that date will be June 12, 2019.

Please note that your child’s medication will be destroyed the day after school ends if it is not picked up.

If your child is returning to Coyle Cassidy next year then our school requires that the following forms must be on file in your child’s health record before we begin to give medication at school.

We will need a new Medication Order from your physician. We will also need a new signed and dated Parental Permission Form. These forms can be downloaded from our website during the summer.

The forms and the medication must be brought to school by a parent/guardian, or responsible adult on the first day of the start of the new school year. All medications must be given to the nurse in a labeled pharmacy bottle. When having your prescriptions filled, request a second container to be used for school purposes.

 Please do not put medication in a baggie. No medication will be administered if it is not in the original container. Please note: pharmacy containers are not a substitute for the prescription orders.

 All medications will be stored in the health office. Under no circumstances should any student be in possession of prescription or non-prescription medication during the school day, at any sponsored school event, or on school premises. Violations will be handled according to the school Drug and Alcohol Policy.

Please see the Student Handbook for our medication policies.
Have a wonderful, fun filled family summer!!
                                                                                  
 Respectfully,
