Although we should all be compassionate, caring and community minded throughout the entire year, the approaching season seems to bring the impulse front and center. An abundance of volunteer and donation opportunities present themselves and, filled with the holiday spirit, we tend to finish the year with philanthropic gestures and goodwill for those less fortunate.
There has been a medication update that all families and students need to be aware of!
According to the AZ Department of Education Health and Nutrition Services, all students that have prescription medications at school now must have a written doctor’s order in addition to the medication authorization form, and the medication must be in its original container with the prescription label.
For students who currently have medication at school, this must be completed by December 1, or we will no longer be able to give that medication.
If there are any questions please contact Brenda Gundelsberger, Health Services District Coordinator, at 520-721-4205.
