DRESS GUIDELINES

With warmer weather coming soon, students will want to wear their spring and summer clothing. We expect students to wear clothing and accessories that reflect reasonable standards of modesty and are appropriate for school. Please refer to page 13 in the GRMS Student Planner/Handbook for more detailed information. Thank you for your support in helping your student make appropriate choices in their attire.


MEDICATION REMINDER!
School personnel may not give children medication without written permission from the parent/guardian and doctor. Parents must bring the medication to the school office and complete the required district form before the medication can be given. Students may never transport medication. Prescription medication must be prepared and labeled by a pharmacist at the direction of a physician. The district requires a signed permission form and instructions from the student’s parent, which includes: name of student, name of medication, route, dosage and frequency of administration will be needed. Prescription medication must remain in the original container from the pharmacy or doctor’s office. Nonprescription medication must be brought to school in original container or packaging and must follow recommended guidelines for dosage. Nonprescription medication means only commercially prepared, non-alcohol based medication to be taken during school hours that is necessary for the student to remain in school.
