Autism Acceptance Month

The Autism society is moving towards Autism Acceptance.  The movement is to show that there are natural variations in the human brain rather than a "disease" to be cured. The movement has several goals, including greater acceptance of autistic behaviors; services that focus on improving quality of life rather than on imitating the behaviors of the Nero typical (non-autistic).

Nurse News You Can Use

Important Southwestern Clinic Reminders:

  • Please keep your child's emergency card up to date. If your child gets sick or injured at school, these cards are our means of contacting you without delay. Please make prompt arrangements to pick up your child when the school notifies you that your child is ill. Pick up should be in less than one hour.

  • Any medication to be administered to a student must be brought to the school by the parent/guardian in the original container. Please do not send medication with your child.  The “Request for Administration of Medication In Hampton Roads Schools” form must be completed and signed by the parent and physician for any medicine to be administered during school hours.


 Please update your preferred phone number and email address with Mrs. Nowell if you are not receiving automated School Messenger Announcements from Mrs. Mounie. Announcements only go to the first number listed.

Due to safety concerns, please Do Not Park in the paved lot near the softball field during school hours. This includes drop off and dismissal. This lot is designated for Bus Drivers only.

For safety reasons, please do not send glass bottles or canned drinks to school.
