Welcome back Wildcats!  A short note from the nurse.  I will be accepting medications for students on an appointment basis ONLY.  If your child needs medication at school, please contact me for an appointment to get the medication to me, do the necessary signatures and make sure I have all the instructions/doctors orders necessary to give the medication to your child. If you have questions or concerns please contact me.  Roberta Sherwood, R.N., BSN, M.Ed
