MEDICATION SEND HOME/PICK-UP REMINDER
The end of the school year is quickly approaching. If your child keeps medication in the nurse’s office, this medication will be packed up and sent home with students on Friday, May 28, 2021. Controlled medications MUST be picked up by parents/guardians. If your student will not be here on Friday, May 28th OR you do not want the medication to be sent home with your student please speak with Nurse Lyndsey no later than May 26th to make alternative arrangements.

No medications will be held over until September. Please remember all medication not picked up will be destroyed at the end of the last day of school.

It has been a pleasure to work with your children this year and I hope you all have a very happy and healthy summer! Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation.

GH ADVOCACY CORNER
Time to rally our charter community for the last week of the 87th Texas Legislature! Our most urgent issue will be discussed on the House floor on Monday. This issue addresses how cities are discriminating against charter schools when it comes to zoning, permitting, and fees. Opponents are telling House members to stand against anything at all that supports charter schools. We need to ensure our community is heard. 

You can help do this in any of these 3 ways:

  1. Complete and share this action alert with fellow charter parents and charter supporters.
  2. Sunday: Virtual March! Virtual March at the Capitol for Students Over Politics on Sunday from 4:00-6:00 pm. Subscribe now to the Texas Public Charter School Association’s action alerts for forthcoming information here
  3. Monday: In Person At The Capitol   Meet at the Capitol at 8 am (or if you can join later) to meet your lawmakers and head to the House gallery Wear GREEN to show your support for public charters.  Can’t physically get to Austin? Then participate in the social media campaign throughout the day! Follow Texas Public Charter Schools on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. For more information, email Great Hearts parent advocacy manager Bridie Chaudoir at bridie.chaudoir@greatheartstx.org.
