Notes from the School Nurse

If your child has medication left in the clinic, please pick it up prior to the summer break.  Medication will be disposed of during June if prior arrangements are not made with clinic personnel.

As a reminder, new medication forms are required every school year.  A physician’s written order is required for any prescription medication at school, whether it is administered in the clinic or self-administered by the student.  Middle and high school students are permitted to carry and self-administer non-prescription medication with a signed parent consent form.  A physician’s form is required for non-prescription medication for elementary students.  Forms are available on the school website at www.olentangy.k12.oh.us.  Click on School Nurses/Health Services, then Health Services Forms, and click on the appropriate form.

If your child requires diabetic care, an inhaler, and/or emergency treatment for an allergy, you may also access the forms online at the same location.  School personnel are not permitted to give expired medication; therefore, be aware of the expiration dates of all medication.

Please contact the school office or clinic staff if you have any questions.

ODN – Living & Learning Successfully with Reading Difficulties

This month’s meeting is a two-part meeting:

During the first half, hear from a panel of adult and student dyslexics as to what it is like to live with reading difficulties and dyslexia in life and learning.

After that, we will have an end of the year celebration for our students.  Why? Because they DESERVE IT!

This program is for kids and adults so there will not be a separate breakout session for kids. Join us! May 21, 6:30 p.m. at Heritage Elementary, 679 Lewis Center Road.

ODN is for families and kids dealing with dyslexia or reading difficulties.  Each month, we host informational sessions and share information so that parents can network and be better informed.

ODN meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Heritage Elementary in Lewis Center.  Our meetings are open to educators, parents and kids.

Be sure to find us just about everywhere.  Download ODN’s FREE SMARTPHONE APP from your App Store today, find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and YouTube.  OlentangyDyslexiaNetwork.com
