3. ~Care plans have been mailed to parents who have children with health issues,
such as asthma, seizures, migraines, diabetes, allergies, etc.

care plan. ~Please return all completed and signed forms to your
school nurse ASAP.
**Care Plans must be updated each school year.

4. The Marion School District does not supply Tylenol, Motrin
or any other medications. ~If your child may need these medications
at school, please be sure to supply your school nurse with the
medication, with your child's name clearly written on the
bottle, and be sure to fill out the Medication Release Form.

5. ~If your child has been prescribed corrective lenses for their vision,
such as eye glasses or contacts, please ensure they wear them
each school day.

Parents and Guardians,

Several of you received a letter in the mail stating that your child is not up to date on their immunizations.  
The letters were marked with the immunizations that your child is required to have to enter school.
 Please be sure to take that letter with you when you take your
child to their physician for their shot(s).

 If your child has had all required immunizations, please bring a copy of their updated shot
record to your child's school and give to the school nurse as soon as possible.  

If your child has not received their immunizations by the date listed on your letter,
your child will not be allowed to attend school until they have received the correct shots.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
