First Aid Requests

Students often come to the office requesting personal and first aid supplies. If we have the supplies, we are happy to provide them. School faculty and staff often purchase these items from their personal money for students. It is very helpful if parents can donate a few items from the following list, as almost all students use these supplies at some point throughout the year.

  • Band-Aides
  • Pads and/or tampons (in addition, it is best if all young ladies keep a personal supply in their lockers)
  • Non-medicated chapstick
  • Cough drops (or peppermints)
  • Dental wax
  • Sandwich bags
  • 3 oz. paper cups
