LCHD Vision Screening 1st Grade  - The Livingston County Health Department will be at H.T. Smith to vision screen all of our 1st grade students along with any requested referrals.

Please do not park in the drop-off (Kiss & Go) lane in front of the school.  This lane is to be used for parents to drop off their children and move ahead so the next car can do a drop-off.

 

 

Medication –If your child requires any prescription or non-prescription medication during the school year, a parent or guardian must bring it to the Smith Office to drop it off and complete the necessary paperwork. School Board Policy states that children are not allowed to transport medication.

FYI- Each school building in the Fowlerville Community School District has a Child Study Team / Response to Intervention process in place, which is a vehicle for staff members to review student performance, concerns, and collaboratively develop interventions. If you have concerns about your child’s development and are interested in more information on special services, contact his/her building Principal.
