Parents please pick up all medication by the end of the day on June 16th (3:45)  this includes all over the counter medication.  If it is not picked up all medication will be destroyed as Per YCSD handbook. Students cannot carry medication so it does need to be picked up by a parent or adult contact that you have previously listed on ASPEN.

Too sick for school:

The following information is from the Health Library at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughter.  Considerations for Keeping your Child home:

1)      If your child has persistent heavy nasal discharge

2)      If your child has a persistent heavy cough

3)      If your child has redness of the eyelid linings or an irritation of the eyes followed by swelling or discharge

4)      If your child has difficult rapid breathing

5)      If your child has diarrhea (more than one abnormally loose stool in a 24 hour period)

6)      If your child states they don’t feel well and is not “acting like him/herself.”

7)      If your child is vomiting

It is York County policy that any child with a temperature greater than 100.0 degrees must stay home until they are fever free for 24hrs without the aid medicines such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen

Please remember to send in your notes!  

Anytime a child is absent from school, comes in tardy, or leaves early due to an appointment please send in a doctor note, to excuse the absence from school. THANK YOU!!        


*Dismissal Changes*

Please remember to send a note or email to your child’s teacher whenever dismissal changes need to be made. This will keep dismissal running smoothly for each and every child and will avoid confusion at the end of the day. Phone calls at the end of the day are discouraged unless it is an emergency.
