    EpiPen recall

    This week, District Health Services staff have been notifying school families impacted by the recent EpiPen recall. According to the FDA, “this recall is due to the potential that these devices may contain a defective part that may result in the devices’ failure to activate.”

    Health Office staff have checked the EpiPens stored in all schools, examining their lot numbers and expiration dates. If an EpiPen was found to be included in the recall, a parent or guardian has been contacted individually.  If any student or staff member has an EpiPen that is part of the recall, they are advised to follow these steps, and then call their pharmacist. Do not throw away the EpiPen until it has been replaced. For more information, visit here.


    Drive 4 UR School Fundraiser

    Join the Irondale Bands on Saturday, April 15 from 9am to 1pm, as they participate in the Drive 4 UR School Fundraising Event.  Test drive a Ford Mustang, a Ford Fusion, or other Ford vehicles and help support the bands.  New Brighton Ford (1100 Silver Lake Rd, New Brighton) will donate $20 per test drive.  It's that easy!  Must be 18 years or older and only one donation per household.  Bring your drivers license & proof of insurance.  Please share with your friends, families, and neighbors and remember to mention Irondale Bands.
