EMERGENCY MEDICAL FORMS - If you have not yet completed and returned the EMF that was mailed home in August, please do so ASAP.  If you have misplaced your form, please have you student stop by and see their Student Services Secretary. The Secretary will print a new form that is populated with most of the information (rather than having to complete an entirely new form) – students just need to stop by their Unit Office and ask. 
As a reminder, if you have turned in an EMF for another school activity, you still need to turn one in for official filing in the office.
Thanks for your help in getting your students EMF completed and turned in.
