End-of-Year Medication Pick Up

(May 1, 2018) -- The end of the school year is quickly approaching! Please remember to pick up your child’s medication in the health office BEFORE the last day of school (Friday, June 22, 2018).

It is not appropriate for us to keep medication at school over the summer – this includes inhalers and Epi-pens – so please pick up your child’s medication. Many of these medications are expensive, and we must dispose of any medication that is not picked up.

All medication left at school will be disposed of as of June 22, 2018 at the close of the school day for students, unless you make other arrangements with the school nurse. The school is not able to allow your child to bring the medication home. If you need to make special arrangements to pick up medication, please call prior to June 22nd (518-828-4360, ext. 8311).

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
