As a reminder, students are allowed to carry NON-PRESCRIPTION medications with them as long as they have a form signed by parents/guardians on file in the clinic. The form designates which medicine the student may carry, and the medicine must be in the original bottle with no more than 1-2 days’ worth of medication in it. PRESCRIPTION medications must be kept in the clinic and are administered by clinic staff. They require an order signed by the physician. The only exceptions to this are epi-pens and inhalers. For these, the student must have a signed physician order with them stating that they can carry these items. All forms are available in the clinic.
Our band is the best!
Kudos to the AHS Band, Band Directors, and parents, who braved the weather at the UIL Marching Contest in Mansfield. The AHS BAND did the best you can do. Straight one's from all 3 judges. Advanced to AREA!!
