Back to School
As the school year is approaches it is time to think about returning to school.
The weather remains very warm for awhile. Please encourage your child to dress appropriately for the weather. Additionally, if your child will be outside they should apply sunscreen SPF 30 or higher prior to coming to school. Remind students to stay hydrated.
Please be sure to complete the blue emergency contact card (front and back) and return to the health office as soon as possible as your child will only be released to the people who are named on the emergency contact card. Please remember to update these cards as necessary throughout the school year.
If your child requires medication at school please the note the medication laws on this website: http://www.mtsinai.k12.ny.us/nurses/index.htm
Have the medical form completed and bring to the health office with your child’s medication.
Reminder for elementary parents: Only closed toed shoes are allowed on the playground. No flip flops, sandals or shoes with heels.
