Parents, please send in all inhalers and epi-pens that are needed by your child. Students who currently have physical education, are participating in the state pacer test. Many of your children are not used to increased physical activity and become short of breathe during this activity. Let’s be prepared and have it available when needed!!! A permission slip will be sent home to be filled out and sent back ASAP.
HEALTH FAIR: HEART IN THE GAMEOn Thursday, April 27th, Springer Middle School will present a health fair from 9am until 1pm. All students will have an opportunity to attend. We are taking this time for our students to become aware of what our community has to offer. We have multiple services that are available to enrich our knowledge and educate students.
Heart in the Game will be present to perform EKG screenings on students who have had prior parent permission. The EKG’s will be read by medical personnel from AI DuPont Hospital. The EKG will assist in diagnosing several different cardiac conditions that could contribute to Sudden Cardiac Death.
