Students may return to school when they have been on the medication for 24 hours or greater.

    Did you know that you can bring your children in late after a medical appointment?   We love to see our students every day so late is better than not at all!   You may also dismiss and return them to make their medical appointments with little time out of school.  Please remember to ask your doctor for a note to excuse the absence as well. 
     
    Thanks!
