5th Grade Camp

5th Grade Camp for the 19-20 School year will be May 18th, May 19th, and May 20th, 2020!  

 Issaquah’s outdoor education program is extremely fulfilling for students.  In order to achieve this, health concerns and accommodations will be addressed well in advance of camp departure. Health forms and Medication Administration Authorizations must be returned as soon as possible to enable the school nurse to create a medical alert list for appropriate staff.  Medication Administration Authorization forms must be completed accurately with signatures from parent/guardians and health care providers.  Please have medications and accompanying provider’s orders at school no later than April 24 2020.  Please be aware that medication should be brought to the school office by a parent. Students are not allowed to carry medications/drugs at school!

All medications for camp need to be brought to the health room by an adult in the original prescription box no later than April 24, 2020.  Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
