As a reminder to all Maple Grove parents – When you drop your kids off in the morning at the side of the gym, please remain in your car. If you are coming into the school with your child, please park in a different area to keep the flow of traffic moving and to ensure the safety of all students. Thank you for your cooperation

A Note from the School Nurse:

Author: Donna Rushing  //  Category: Health

A Note from the School Nurse:

 

Tylenol and ibuprofen are not dispensed at school unless there is a medication authorization form with parent/guardian signature on file and a bottle has been sent from home in the original container with the label intact.

 

Also Mobile Safari Dentist will be here on Wednesday, Sept. 16. All Kindergarten, 2nd and 6th Graders will need a dental exam on file by

May 16, 2015 so this is the perfect opportunity to take care of this.

 

6th Graders also remember to turn in their physical with immunizations including the TDap, vericella and meningitis by October 15, to avoid being excluded from school.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact
