Message from the Principal

Good Afternoon, 

NURSE'S NOTES
The end of the school year is near and I would like to remind parents and/or guardians that all prescription medications must be picked up by an adult by the close of the last day of school on June 13, 2019. 
Any medications not picked up will be disposed of properly at the close of the day.
When you pick up your child’s medication, you will find all necessary forms for your healthcare provider to complete prior to the start of the next school year.
Also, students entering 7th grade (2019-2020) must have a current physical and immunization record on file in the health office that includes the following per Massachusetts School Immunization Requirements:

  • 1 dose of Tdap
  • 4 doses of Polio
  • 3 doses of Hepatitis B
  • 2 doses of MMR
  • 2 doses of varicella or a reliable history of chickenpox or laboratory evidence of immunity

Please forward this information to the school nurse, Joan Smith, RN via email joansmith@abingtonps.org or by fax 781-347- 5240. Thank you.
Best wishes for a safe, healthy and happy summer!

Joan M. Smith, BSN, RN, NCSN
