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.
With flu season taking hold, we want to remind families that in addition to getting an annual flu shot, things like washing hands, covering coughs, and staying home when they're sick are really important to help prevent catching and spreading the flu. Area pharmacies are offering FREE flu shots. please otherwise make an appointment with the child’s pediatrician for a flu shot. Middle School children are often not aware that they are spreading germs. More importantly if they have a fever, nausea/vomiting or diarrhea, please keep them home.If you have changed your phone number, please feel free to contact the school with that change. Let’s work together to keep our students and staff healthy here at Springer.
