    Turn in Those Library Books!

    Please remember to return all school library books this week! Books can be dropped off in the library and to the box on the bench at the front of the school. If, after looking high and low, you cannot locate a lost book, please pay for it on SchoolPay.

  • From the Laurelhurst Health Room

    PLEASE PICK UP MEDICATION from the health room by Friday, 6/14.

    We have stock epi pens on hand, so there is no need to wait until the last day to pick those up.

     

    Per district policy, all medication left at school must be picked up by parents/guardians or be destroyed at the end of the school year. We hate destroying unexpired epi-pens and unused medication, so please help us get your medication back to you for the summer!

     

    If you have any questions, please reach out to Kelly Fischer, Laurelhurst's School Health Assistant, at kfischer@mesd.k12.or.us .

     
    MESD Health Centers are open this summer and available to all students!

    There are two health centers open over the summer months. No insurance is required, they do ask that you call to make an appointment. These health centers assist with well child exams, illness/injury care, immunizations, sports physicals, and mental health services. Check out the attached flyer for more information

  • 2nd Annual Pride Walk is THIS THURSDAY, June 6th

    Dear Laurelhurst Community,

     

    We are happy to announce our second Laurelhurst Pride Parade! We are excited for this opportunity to show our support for our LGBTQ+ students and families. We will have lots of activities including a coloring station, button making, flag making and "glam" station! We will have a parade through a small area of our neighborhood—see the map below.

     

    We are excited and proud to offer this event, and also take safety very seriously. Students 4th grade and younger will need to have an "identified adult" that is there with them. Also, we need lots of volunteers to help set, run stations, and support along the parade route; please contact Andrea Bloch, abloch@pps.net. We hope to see you there!

     

    When: Thursday, June 6th @ 3:30pm

     

    Where: Meet under the covered structure

  • From the Health Room - Pick Up Meds by 6/14

We are asking you to make arrangements to pick up all unused medication from the Health Room on or before Friday, June 14th, the last day of school.
