WELCOME TO THE SLRHS HEALTH OFFICE


June, 2018

Hello Parents & Guardians;

It certainly is amazing how quickly a school year can pass by! All of a sudden it is June and we are faced with a few loose ends to wrap up before heading off for summer fun. First of all, I ask that you please pick up any prescribed medication that your student has had stored with me in the Health Office. The school cannot store the medication during the summer months and must be picked up before the last day of school, June 22. All unclaimed medications will be destroyed.

Here are a few helpful hints from the CDC to ensure a safe summer for all:

  • Wear sunscreen, with an SPF factor of at least 15, a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin from the sun and sunglasses to protect your eyes.
  • Use U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets when out on the water.
  • Drink plenty of water even if you are not thirsty. Stay hydrated!
  • Keep those pesky, disease carrying bugs away. Use repellant when going outside.
  • Wash your hands often to avoid spreading germs.
  • Hike/Bike/Swim/Explore, always with a friend, never alone.
  • Wear the appropriate protective equipment when engaging in sport related activities to avoid injury.

In closing, I would like to wish everyone a summer full of fun and adventure, but most of all be safe in all that you do. So enjoy the weeks ahead for as we all know, time flies when having fun!!!
