It is important for all of us to work together during the school year in order to keep out children’s learning environment a healthy one for everyone. Please review the following important information.


  • Any child who is too ill to give attention in class should remain at home until he/she is completely recovered.

  • A child with an elevated temperature above 100.0 degrees, vomiting, or experiencing diarrhea should be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school.

  • If a child has strep throat, impetigo, conjunctivitis or any other condition requiring an antibiotic, the child should be kept home for 24 hours after starting the antibiotic.

  • Every attempt should be made to schedule medication outside of school hours to avoid interruption of your child’s school day (i.e.. Antibiotics).

  • Injuries suffered outside of school, on weekends or in the evening, cannot be effectively evaluated and treated at school. These injuries, however, should be reported to the school nurse.

  • If a child has had surgery, follow physician instructions for return to school. Please inform the school nurse of any activity restrictions.

  • A child with live lice may return to school after treatment and they have been examined by the school nurse before returning to class. Children should not have long absences for lice.

  • A child with a contagious disease should remain home until cleared by the doctor to return to school.

  • A child who is not completely immunized for an infectious disease will have to remain home in the case of a disease outbreak.

  • Current and reliable emergency numbers are essential when there is a need to contact a parent. Please contact the school with any changes in emergency information. (i.e. new telephone numbers).

  • According to Massachusetts State Law, no medication can be accepted in school without a written order from a doctor. This includes non-prescription items such as cough medicine, cough drops, etc.. Any medication that is to be given at school should be brought in by a parent/guardian to the school nurse.

  • The school nurse should be informed of any child with allergies, especially to food or any allergies severe enough to require medication.

  • Please make sure your child is always dressed appropriately for the weather.

  • Please call the office to report your child’s absence(s), along with the reason for that absence.


Change of Clothes
This year extra clothing at school will be limited due to lack of space. A few items for medical emergencies are in the nurse's office. These items of clothing should be cleaned and returned to nurse if given to your child. Parents will be called to bring clothing when tears or spills prevent the student from returning to class.
A change of clothes placed in your child's backpack might be easiest for all.
  
Flu Information
Please look in the above "Forms" topic to find an attachment with flu information. Just click on "view."
Footwear for School
Protect your child's feet by having them wear appropriate footwear. Remember that the students participate in physical education and many activities at recess out in the fields. Scrapes and insect bites can often be prevented when feet are fully covered.
