Note from the Nurse
You can now find and print all health forms needed for your child on the PCS website. Forms include: the yearly physical form, prescription medication form, health form and standing order form. Our school medication and illness policies can also be found under this tab, along with Massachusetts immunization requirements. Having access to these forms will allow parents to print the forms out and mail/fax them to their physician or bring them to physician appointments where they can be filled out at the time of the visit. These forms are accessible by clicking the Parent tab and then the Health Services tab.
Please feel free to call the Health Office with any questions.
If your child is absent/tardy or being dismissed
If your child is being dismissed, for any reason, please inform the school no later 8:30 a.m. so the teacher can have your child ready for pick-up.
If your child will be a pick-up, please send in a note in the morning or call no later than 1:45 p.m. This will alleviate any angst or confusion for your child.
