If your child has a current health plan or emergency plan on file with the school, you will receive a copy during the summer to update for the upcoming school year.

If your child has a change in their health or has a healthcare need at school, please email our school district nurse, Shea Reiland during the summer and she will contact you at the beginning of the school year to discuss.  

If your child will need to take medication at school, please work with your doctor to have the following form completed and signed before the start of the school year.  As a reminder, the directions on the medication bottle must match the written order on the medication request form.
