Anyone whose child needs to have the school nurse administered by the nurse on trip must drop off the medicine (only the exact doses to be given) between 5 and 7 PM on Thursday night.  If your child takes medicine for motion sickness, give it to them before they arrive on Friday.
What to wear
Due to the high temp of 93 degrees on Saturday, I will permit students to change out of their jeans at the park.(School appropriate pants/shorts)  Students must keep their ID shirts on.  To avoid any bus issues or delays please students may NOT change on the bus.  Students will be made to change out of any inappropriate clothing.
