Parents, if your child requires medication during school hours it is important that you complete the REQUIRED over-the-counter medication authorization form (Attachment 1 of Regulation 757-4). This regulation pertains to any substance considered medication, including eye drops or oral numbing medication. New as of 2011-12, students can now self carry cough drops without checking into the clinic first.
Students caught carrying unauthorized medications in school may be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the PWCS Code of Conduct. This regulation is for the safety and wellness of ALL students at Woodbridge MS. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email the school nurse.
Scoliosis is a developmental abnormality of the spinal column that may occur in other wise healthy children during the growing years from ages 10 to 17. The early diagnosis and treatment of scoliosis is important.
The fact sheet presents an explanation of scoliosis and an at-home screening methodology for parents.
Please Report your Student's Illnesses
It is important that you call to report your child's absence as soon as possible, especially when it is due to illness. Please give basic information regarding your child’s illness when calling, stating if he or she has a fever and if there are any other symptoms of influenza. Please do NOT wait to report their illness until they return to school. Thank you for doing your part to help keep Woodbridge Middle students, families, and staff members healthy.
