Notes from the school nurse:  We hear this often in the health room.  Stomach aches can be caused by many things.  Hunger, stress and spicy foods are some of the reasons we get a stomach ache.  Avoid spicy foods and eat often enough to reduce the acid in your stomach.  These things will reduce the chance for a stomach ache.

Notes from the school nurse:  I have a headache!  We hear this many times in the health room every day.  Headaches can be caused by stress, hunger, dehydration, and being tired.  Before you reach for a pain reliever, think about WHY you may have a headache.  Get a drink of water, eat a snack, and learn some relaxation techniques.  These can all help to reduce a headache.

Interested in summer camp for football, volleyball or basketball?  Make sure that you see Coach Rowe or Coach Cleppe for registration forms!

Students who are attending a Teton trip this summer should report to the new wing commons area for a group photo at this time.
