allergy kit Hi all! With the change in seasons comes changes in our children’s day to day health!

PLEASE, if your child has asthma or severe allergies, we need explicit written consent to treat them, and we need an inhaler or Epipen in our office. If you have any doubt as to whether we have these things for your child, please check with Alexandra Dunbar, our school secretary, at 212-501-3318 or alexandra@specialmusicschool.org.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this important issue.
