Call Me

If your child is going to be absent, please call me at 781-794-8420, and then press 1. There is no need to wait for school hours. If you happen to know in the middle of the night that your child is ill, please call and leave a message.

Your message should include:

  • Your child’s name

  • Reason for absence
  • Predicted length of absence

Please recall that upon your child’s healthy return to school, he or she must turn in a note to his/her teacher explaining the absence.


Nurse Sara’s News for March, 2020


Unfortunately, flu season continues to be in full swing.  Please stay home from work and school if you get sick with a flu-like illness (fever with cough or sore throat), and avoid contact with others so the virus does not spread. Stay at home until you have been free from fever for at least 24 hours after your last dose of fever-reducing medication (like Tylenol, Advil or Motrin).  People sick with flu should make sure to drink plenty of fluids, get rest, eat healthy foods, wash their hands often, and stay home to avoid spreading the flu to other people. Over the counter pain relievers may help people with the flu feel more comfortable.  Children and teens with the flu should never take aspirin, because a rare but serious disease called Reye Syndrome can occur.  Do not give cough or cold medicines to children younger than 4 years of age.  Remember, the best way we can stay healthy is to wash our hands!

Spring is not quite here yet, so please remember to send your child with a hat, jacket, and gloves/mittens for outside recess for our full day students.

Finally, anyone interested in signing up for the 9th Annual Sprint for Super Saturdays 5k Run/Walk please join our school in completing the Couch to 5K BASHY Challenge. It is a great opportunity to get active and have some fun!  https://runsignup.com/Race/MA/Braintree/SprintforSuperSaturdays
