Announcement from Nurse Jamie
I will be available in my health office on August  21, and 22nd from 3pm to 5pm for parents to drop off health office paper work, medications and action plans for the 2014-2015 school year. I would be happy to set up a private appointment with parents who need to discuss medical concerns before the start of the school year. You can email me at jstrokosch@op97.org with requests.
Reminder!! All medications (This includes prescription and over the counter medications)  need to have a physician order and all medications need to be labeled with the prescribing information printed on the label. A physician’s order form can be printed from this link:
