Spring 2021 

I hope you are all doing well! As we progress to full days in school, I'd like to review some details:

* 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 3 feet apart).

* Spring allergy season is in full effect! Please speak with your child's pediatrician if you believe your child has spring allergies. 

* 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 recent close contact with a person known to be infected with Covid-19.

* If your child has traveled outside of Massachusetts, please follow the COVID-19 Travel Advisory

* A list of test sites is available here, and Massachusetts also has an interactive testing map

If you have any questions before school, an on-call nurse will be available from 6am to 8am at 978-794-4842 on school days. Otherwise, please call or email me.

Please contact me with any questions!

Thank you!

Helen Fuller
