September 2020

I hope you all had a wonderful summer!! I am so excited to see the students!

* If your child will need medication or other specialized nursing during the school day, please reach out to me so we can work together to keep your child healthy and safe at school.

* Your child will need to wear a mask at all times while on school property (including school buses and outside) but will get mask breaks. Please send your child in with two extra masks in case they need to change it for any reason. 

* Please talk with your children about ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19. At school, we will use the phrase The 3 Ws:

1. Wear a mask

2. Wash your hands

3. Watch your distance (stay 6 feet apart).

* Before coming to school every morning, please assess your child's health and please keep them home from school for any of the following reasons:

1. If your child has COVID symptoms

2. If your child has had had close contact with a person known to be infected with Covid-19 in the last 14 days

3. If your child has traveled outside of Massachusetts in the past 14 days (except lower risk states)

Please contact your primary care provider for further instructions and get a test for active COVID-19 infection prior to returning to school unless another diagnosis was determined to cause your symptoms. A list of test sites is available here, and Massachusetts also has an interactive testing map

Please contact me with any questions!

Thank you!

Helen Fuller
