Anna Eyler from the Class of 2017 is now the Head Coach of Special Olympics Frederick County Swimming. In the beginning of February she will be starting the Swim season and is low on volunteers. She is looking for some new volunteers that know at least the basics of swimming and would be available during practices which are on Fridays at Hood College from 5-7pm. For anyone that is interested, please see Mrs. Splaine for contact information.
Community Service Hours: All community service hours submitted through Mobile serve must have a form of verification. Your phone signed by supervisor, and email response from supervisor, or photo of signed form. If you have submitted hours, check to make sure they have been approved. Many have not. All hours for working blood drive, giving blood, or attempting to give blood, will be submitted by Mrs. Splaine, so you do not have to do it. Any community service questions, see Mrs. Splaine.There are new community service opportunities on the board outside Mrs. Splaine’s room.
Junior rings and senior graduation things: Junior rings and graduation things must be ordered sooner rather than later to be sure all things arrive in a timely manner. You may still order online but be mindful of deadlines for receiving graduation items and rings in time for celebrations!
Medication at school: If your student needs to take any medications at school from a cough drop to Epipens for allergies or asthma inhalers, you will need to have your doctor fill out the HealthLink medication at school form each school year and the asthma action plan, diabetes protocol or allergic reaction plan if your student is diabetic or needs to carry an inhaler or Epipen at school. All medications must be left in the main office (exceptions are Epipens and inhaler) and cannot be administered without proper documentation. Each medication must have a separate form. Your child's doctor must sign off on your student carrying an inhaler or Epipen and a separate action plan must accompany each order. Please contact Mrs. Petrie with any questions. The forms are available from the school website, www.saintjohnsprep.org, click on the Parents tab, click on Forms/Policies and then General Forms and Policies.
