School Info

OLA love

We are so grateful for our Olander parent community.  Parents are involved in many aspects of the school, including numerous volunteer activities.  We are extremely fortunate to have so many caring, generous families that support their children and Olander in so many ways.  We hope every new parent feels welcome and that each current parent is excited to be part of our school.  We look forward to working with you this year to co-create an incredibly positive educational experience for your child!

Health Information:

Please keep Olander's school health care staff informed about your child's special health concerns, medications, and dietary needs.  

Medications at School

All medication given at school, whether doctor prescribed or over-the-counter, must be accompanied by the PSD Medication Authorization and Release form, available in the Olander office, signed by both the parent/guardian and the physician. Medication must be provided and brought to school in the original prescription bottle or over-the-counter container. Pharmacists may provide you with two bottles if you ask them to label one for school use. If medication changes or medication is discontinued during the school year, please have the child’s doctor fax us the new or correct orders. Contact Stephanie Garner at 970-488-8410 for more information.

Keep immunization records up to date

Students registering for the first time in PSD must present proof of immunizations or provide a signed exemption statement of religious or personal objection. Call your healthcare provider, the Larimer County Health Department at (970) 498-6700, or visit for information. 

A walk-in children’s immunization clinic is offered at the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment, 1525 Blue Spruce Drive. Call for specific times.
