Now that Spring is here and it's almost the end of the school year, there are a few things from the Dos Rios Health Office to keep in mind on with the end of this school year and the upcoming school yea. Things to look for in the Wednesday Folders on these days (keep in mind NOT all students pertain to this):
1) End of year Medication forms will be sent home with student on April 29th and need to be filled out, signed and returned as soon as possible. This is for me to know whether to send home with student or if parent will be responsible in picking up. I would like those who may have any control substance medication or Epi-Pen's to be picked up by parent/guardian for the safety of all students.
2) Student with health concerns, new forms will be sent home with student on April 29th as well but you have all summer to complete and bring back on registration day for next school year 2015-16.
More notes from the nurse!
~If your student has lost some clothing like jackets, lunch boxes, shoes, shirts, etc.... Please check out the lost and found outside the school front office.
~If your students owns prescription glasses and appear to be lost, please swing by the health office during the school year because we will have a selection I'm sure to choose from. If they don't get picked up they will be donated to closest Vision Care Place available.
