Dear Parent/Guardian:

It’s pretty amazing at how quickly a summer can come and go with the start of the 2017-2018 school year beginning in only a matter of days! So with that being said, I would like to remind all parents/guardians with students here at the high school who are on prescribed medication to have your physician issue the necessary signed medication order/authorization forms which will enable the administration of your child's medication throughout the 2017-2018 school year. These documents along with your child's medication can be brought to the Health Office starting Monday, August 28, from 7:30 AM - 2:00 PM.

With regards to over the counter medication, written permission of a parent/guardian is required by our Health Office. Students receive a blue emergency contact card the first day of school and it is on this card one can indicate which over the counter medication you are allowing to be dispensed to your child. It is very important that this card is completed and returned to the Health Office at the start of school.

Also just as important is the purple "Student Health Inventory". Both sides of this form need to be completed and returned at the start of school and will be placed in your student's confidential health file in the nurse's office.

So as we head back I would like to wish all of our students good health and much success. Go Lakers!
