STUDENT DISMISSAL TIME: 11:10AM


All meetings will be held virtually or by phone. For staff scheduling virtual meetings, they may utilize an online platform to share available meeting times with families. The tool integrates with Google Meet and once families sign up for a time, a meeting appointment will be automatically sent, which will include the meeting link. Staff will be sending (or have sent) communication regarding the process. Our team teachers will have a varying schedule as they have in previous years. This is to accommodate for both teachers to meet together, with all families.

Influenza Vaccine Requirement for School Attendance

The Mansfield Public Schools adhere to Massachusetts Regulations, 105 CMR 200.000 & 220.000 which require a physical examination and up-to-date Immunizations prior to school entry.


Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, influenza vaccine will be required for all students. All students must receive seasonal influenza (Flu) vaccine by December 31, 2020.


Please send confirmation of your child’s flu vaccination to your school health office. Health Office contact information can be found here.


Thank you for your adherence to this regulation. Influenza vaccine is always important to receive in order to reduce the risk of getting sick with influenza, reduce the severity of disease if one does get sick (including the risk of hospitalization) due to influenza, as well as preventing the spread of influenza to others. During the COVID-19 pandemic, influenza vaccine is especially critical to reduce the overall impact of respiratory illness on the population, protect vulnerable populations from severe illness, and decrease the overall burden on the healthcare system.
