Important News from the Nurse

End of Year Medication Pick-up:

Attention: If your child has medication in the Health Room, it will need to be picked up by an adult by Tuesday, June 13th at 2:30 pm. Medications are not to be transported by students. Any medication that is not picked up by 2:30 pm on June 13th will be disposed of per HCPSS policy. This includes all medications (daily medications, over-the-counter medications, inhalers, Epi Pens, etc.).
Medication orders are only valid for the current school year. New orders will be needed at the start of next year (August 2023). The links to the order forms are below. If you have any questions, please contact the School Nurse at 410-313-1510.  

Important Immunization Requirements for Rising 7th and Graduating 8th grade students

Effective the first day of school, 2023-2024, 1 dose of Tdap vaccine and 1 dose of Meningococcal vaccine will be required by the state of Maryland for all students entering Grade 7.  ALSO, any graduating 8th grade student entering 9th grade will need proof of a second dose of varicella vaccine.  If we do not receive proof of these immunizations, your child will be excluded from school.  Many students may have already received these immunizations, but the Health Room may not have the updated immunization record.  Please contact your child’s doctor and send, via email or fax, an updated copy of your child’s immunizations to the Health Room.  Our fax # is (410) 531-2473. If you have further questions, please call our Health Room at (410) 313-1510​.  Thank You!
