100 Parents Strong! Help us help our school. For $10 a month let’s band together to support our teachers. Our teachers are constantly using their own limited funds to purchase classroom supplies, or our students have to go without. This is our chance to give back. For $10 a month you can help support 2 teachers (one 7th and one 8th grade) for classroom materials, supplies, and/or necessities. Your donation will mean so much to our teachers, and that will help our students excel this year. Please join us in supporting our teachers because together we can be 100 Parents Strong!

MUSD policy does not allow any medication to be given at school, including "over the counter" medication, without having a Physician's permission note on file.Parents should prepare for the "occasional headache, etc." by having their Student's Physician fax a note to the school if they would like the school to be able to administer medication. Notes are good for one school year.Student's are NOT allowed to carry any medication at school without permission from the School Nurse.

We will no longer be dispensing prescribed OR over the counter medications (Tylenol, ibuprofen, benadryl, etc.) without a letter signed from parents and PHYSICIAN. We can no longer call parents and get verbal over the phone permission. If a student is sick with a fever, requires benadryl for an allergy, etc. then without a physician note the student either needs to be picked up ASAP or the parent can come self administer it themselves. Each student must have their own labeled bottle in the original container that we can store in the LOCKED medicine cabinets at each site. We can no longer provide the medications at each site. The forms for medication are available in the MMS Office and at https://mms.middletownusd.org/home/nurse-s-corner

Once A Week Take A Peek-Fight back against head lice! Use proper detection comb to trap head lice.

If head lice are spotted, take a close look at all the family, including yourself, and ask close family and friends to check as well. Inform the school.

Should your child stay home?

Check your child for head lice on a weekly basis and treat straight away when live lice are found. We do have a NO NIT policy, once your child has no live lice or nits they can attend school, child care and all other activities as usual. Please take your child to the office to be checked by staff. If nits or live lice are found your child will have to return home with parent/guardian. Please check your child’s head for head lice weekly. If we all work together we can eliminate the problem quickly and prevent the spread to other students.
