Please ensure that the contact information for your student is current and in working order. You can do so by accessing the Schoolwise Parent Portal. This needs to be updated at the beginning of every school year, and any time the information changes. it is important to have more than one contact in case we are unable to reach you.
It is also important that the medical and allergy information is current for your student. if warranted, the nurse's office will contact you to create a care plan for your student. This is especially important for students with food allergies, medication allergies, bee sting allergies, chronic illness or student's who need to take medication during the school day. Any student who requires an Epi Pen for allergies must have a care plan on file.
