Students, parents, and teachers, mark your calendars to give the "gift of life" and participate in our MEDIC blood drive on Tuesday, Oct. 15 2019.
Students 16 and over are eligible to participate. If you're 16 and 120 lbs you may donate with parental consent. (Please use the form titled Blood Drive Consent. Pick one up from any health science teacher. Forms will also be available in the library). Seventeen-year olds who weigh 110 lbs or more may participate as well. Seventeen and eighteen year olds DO NOT need a signed permission form.
Note: EVERYONE donating blood must have ID with them as well as a list of medications if appropriate.
Giving blood will take more than the 15 minutes indicated by the time slot. The time slot is used to indicate when you should come to sign in with the MEDIC staff. Make sure you share your plans to donate blood with your teacher if you have a scheduled class during this time.
Please encourage your family and friends to contribute during our blood drive. By donating blood, you'll be helping our community, as well as our school, because MEDIC donates money to our school for each pint of blood collected if we reach a certain percentage of the student body.
