If your child needs to go home due to illness or injury, you or your designee must come to the Health Office to pick up your child and sign him or her out in the main office.

If you anticipate that your child may need medication such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen during the school day for headaches, colds, braces tightening, etc., please complete the Medication Authorization Form located on the District Health Services page. Also, please bring in a small bottle of the medication you want on hand for your child in the original bottle, labeled with your child's name. No baggies of medication will be accepted.
