Health Screening Updates

Massachusetts General Law, chapter 71, section 57 with related regulations 105 CMR 200.000 mandates that school nurses do periodic screenings of vision, hearing, growth (height and weight), and posture. Bill H.4056, section 97 requires schools to conduct annual verbal screenings (SBIRT) for substance use. Pursuant to these regulations, MPS nurses screen students according to the following schedule:

Parents/guardians will be notified if a vision, hearing, or postural screening requires further evaluation. Included in this notification will be a request for a report from your healthcare provider of their findings so that the nurses are aware of any problems which may interfere with learning and can accommodate any needs that are identified.

Parents may choose not to have their children participate in any or all screenings. Please notify your school nurse in writing by October 1, 2022 if you wish for your student to opt-out of a screening. This must be done annually.

If your student is receiving treatment for a vision, hearing, or postural concern, please provide Shannon Aikey, with current medical documentation of their condition.

Instrument Lessons

Instrumental Lesson slots are still available! If your student is in grade 4 and above and you were unable to register for music lessons, please reach out to program director Rebecca Damiani at to find out which instruments still have available time slots.

Arts Emerson

MHS Parent, David Howse is the Executive Director of Arts Emerson and they have a performance coming up in October called Drumfolk.

"Magic. Amazing. A feast for all the senses." — BroadwayWorld on Drumfolk

When Africans lost the right to use their drums, the beats found their way into the body of the people. Inspired by the Stono Rebellon of 1739 and Negro Act of 1740, Drumfolk is a thrilling, percussive exploration of American history, placing a spotlight on the rhythmic cycle of life that bonds all of us together.

Step Afrika! have been called “masters of stepping” by the New Yorker and “electrifying talents” by the New York Times. Through music, stepping, tap, and ring shouts these remarkable performers recreate histories too often left in the margins. After their celebrated prior visits to Boston (The Migration, Step Afrika!), the troupe returns this fall with a celebration of the human spirit perfect for the entire family. Step into history, step into Drumfolk!

Visit for more information and tickets.

Use promo code MPSARTSEMERSON for 30% off adult tickets and $15 student tickets, good for all performances of Drumfolk, OCT 5 - 16 at the Cutler Majestic Theatre in downtown Boston.
