Clinic End of Year News

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school. Medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student. However, with your permission, a high school student may transport over-the-counter medications to and from the school health room.

Medication authorization forms for next year may be obtained from the school or on-line here.

If your child will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by FCPS, your existing long-term medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program. Please let the health room know if you would like a copy of the form(s).

Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact your school health room aide, Lynn Jones at (703) 319-2310. Thank you.

Madison High School Food Pantry

Madison High School and the PTSA continue to work together to provide a Food Pantry for students and families in need. And we need your support!  We distribute approx 30-40 bags of food each week to Madison students (and their families) in need.

Thank you to the Madison community for all your support during the school year.  Your contributions have made a huge difference and it is due to your caring and your generosity that the Madison Pantry has been such a success!  If you would like to donate, we are looking for both shelf stable milk and liquid dish soap as the school year comes to a close.

Our Madison pantry has been generously supported by our Madison community and we are planning to expand support for our students families in need this summer.  If you would like to help or support these efforts, please contact me at president@jmhsptsa.org.  Additionally, we are collecting new or gently used school supplies for our students for the next school year.  Please drop any end of year or new supplies in the collection box in the front office at Madison.
