News from the Nurse

If your child has medications that have been kept at school this year, please call the school and let us know if you will be in to pick the medication up on the last day. If I do not hear from you, medications will be sent home with your child on the last day.

Thank you all for a successful year at Woodland Hills. I have enjoyed caring for all of your children. Please remember all of the potential dangers that come with the fun of summer ­‐- ­sunburns, campfires, water dangers, bike accidents, falls, etc.

Have a healthy and safe summer!
