Another Wonderful Year in The Books!
We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to our community for their support in creating the very best educational opportunities for students here at Pinewood. As families have partnered with our school for reading at home, math work, field trips, events and volunteering, our students have gotten another amazing elementary school experience this year. We wish our 5th graders the best on their middle school adventure, and look forward to seeing all of you soon!
A MESSAGE FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE
IF YOUR STUDENT HAS ANY MEDICATION AT SCHOOL in the Health Office, it will be sent home with your student the week of June 3rd-5th in a sealed envelope. Inhalers, epi-pens and other urgently needed medications will be sent on Wednesday. June 5th. Please contact the Health Office if you wish to make other arrangements.
One exception is that controlled substances, such as ADHD or seizure control medications, must be picked up by a parent or another appointed adult. If you are unable to do so prior to June 5th, please contact the office at 651-621-7500 to make arrangements for pick up at an alternative time.
New forms for medical and parent authorization for 2019-20 medications will be included with the medications. The forms can be mailed, dropped off or faxed to 651-621-7505 during the summer so they will be ready for your student in the fall.
If you have any questions please call the health office at 651-621-7504.
We’re wishing you all a healthy, happy and safe summer break!
