Dear JSIS Parents and Guardians,
This is a friendly reminder to pick up your child’s medications from school on the last day of school, Friday June 14th, 2013. The medications are held in the Nurses’ Office in the locked cabinets. Inform the front office staff that you would like to pick up your child’s medications. The only exception is the JSIS students who will be attending Language Camp, from June 18-21st- in which you will need to pick them up on the last day of camp, Friday June 21st.
I want to ensure that if your child attends Summer Camp, Daycare, transferring to another school, or is being cared for a family member, that they have their medication(s) with them.
This week, you will receive reminder letters that you will need to pick up your child’s medication. If you have an expired Epi Pen, I would love to keep it to use it for next years’ staff meeting for Epi Pen training.
I will return to JSIS on Tuesday, June 18th to clean out my office and receive the incoming Kindergartners who have medications that they will need to keep at language camp. If any medications are still left at school, I will call you to remind you to pick them up. JoJean’s last day is Wednesday, June 26th. Medications left at school will not be my responsibility and will be disposed of.
Thank you for all your help! I had a wonderful year working with you and your children! Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing you all again next year!
