5/31/17 - ILLNESS ALERT: IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON Tick Bites and Lyme Disease.

5/4/17 - ILLNESS ALERTS: SEASONAL ALLERGIES: While the illnesses have decreased somewhat after April vacation, it is peak time for seasonal allergy sufferers. Please make sure that your child is taking their allergy medication regularly, and encourage them to wash their face and hands after coming in from outdoors to lessen the likelihood of rubbing pollen into their eyes and worsening the symptoms. 

Starting next fall, we will be transitioning from the orange paper Health Information Update forms to Power School. Just as we ask each year for you to provide the school nurse with updated medical information about your child, you will be required to complete the health update section on Power School electronically, and to contact the school nurse during the year if there are any additional changes. Parents will receive an email later this spring with instructions about accessing the Parent Portal, as well as as an account number so that you will have confidential access to your child's Power School health update page.

INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL SCREENINGS: Vision and hearing screenings have now been completed in all grades. In addition, first and fourth grades students have undergone growth screenings as per Massachusetts Department of Public Health requirements. While we very often do pick up vision or hearing issues during the screenings, please understand that screenings are not the same as having a more thorough, diagnositic exam performed by an eye doctor or audiologist. If your child did not pass the school vision or hearing screening, you have been notified that your child needs to be referred to a specialist for further evaluation. It is important to make an appointment and return the referral form to the health office when completed so that we can keep your child's health record up to date and to make any additional recommended educational accomodations.
 If you would like to obtain the results of your first or fourth grade child's growth screening (BMI), please feel free to contact the school nurse.
