A Message from the School Nurse About Your Child's Medication

As the school year comes to a close, please know that we do not send medication home with students at the end of the year. If you have supplied the school with medication (prescription or over-the-counter) for your child, a parent will need to pick up any remaining medication from the clinic no later than Friday, May 25. Any medication not picked up by that day will be disposed of according to school policy. Questions or concerns? Contact school nurse Adrianne Thomas.


A Message from the Director of Admissions

We know that the incidence of dyslexia in families is very high. If you are seeing signs that your other children are struggling, contact Peggy Hendrix to set up a sibling screening. If you aren't sure what to look for, read Peggy's most recent Read Rise Fly blog post, entitled "If You've Seen One Dyslexic, You've Seen One Dyslexic." The post talks about the familial clustering of dyslexia and shares some of dyslexia's red flags to look for. The Read Rise Fly blog can be found on the School website under the Resources tab. It is a collection of posts from our experts on a variety of topics and is updated often. Be sure to check it out and subscribe to notifications!
