Summer college experiences: The counseling office has compiled a variety of summer programs. If you are interested in a college experience over the summer check out the summer program tab on the college corner of the SJCP website.
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.
