Does Your Child Take Medication at School?

This medication can be picked up during regular school hours until the end of the year. Beginning June 6th, you must contact the administrative assistant in the school office to arrange a pick up time.  Any medication not picked up by June 30th will be discarded.  If your student needs medication at school next year, new medication authorization forms will need to be completed.  Forms can be picked up in the school office or accessed HERE.  If you have questions, please contact your school nurse.

Emphasis on Testing Needs to Change - Dr. Clifford
We are a nation and a state with an over-emphasis on testing! This myopic focus on test, testing, and tested has got to change.  Teachers spend an exorbitant amount of energy and education preparing students for and taking tests. All of the 16 public school districts in Montgomery County look forward to being held accountable. We have high expectations for all of our students. We focus on student growth, graduation, and career goals. We are developing students’ curiosity and imaginations and creating critical thinkers and problem-solvers.
