Letters regarding this mandate as well as the LCPH authorization forms were mailed out March 1, 2019, to all parents of students that need these completed. I recommend taking advantage of this clinic as it is little or no cost to you depending on insurance. The form needs to be turned into me no later than March 29th, 2019.
