Weekly Update - Owl #13

Hybrid Learning Week 9

Conference Week

This week is conference week. All appointment confirmations have been emailed out. Please contact me if you did not sign up for a conference but would still like to as I have a few slots available. Also, if you did sign up for a conference would you mind filling out this SHORT form? We have precious few moments to chat. I have prepared a general overview of each child's progress but I want to make sure I address any specific questions you have.

Due to conferences, Tuesday will be a half-day for Cohort 1. Wednesday will be a half-day for all students with remote instruction from 9:00 AM to 12:15.

Flu Vaccine

Flu Vaccine Documentation
Per the MA Department of Public Health, influenza immunization will be required for all children 6 months of age or older who are attending Massachusetts child care, pre-school, kindergarten, K-12, and colleges and universities. The new vaccine requirement is an important step to reduce flu-related illness and the overall impact of respiratory illness during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All MURSD students will be expected to have received a flu vaccine by December 31, 2020, for the 2020-2021 influenza season, unless either a medical or religious exemption is provided. Also exempted are K-12 students who are homeschooled and higher education students who are completely off-campus and engaged in remote learning only. This new flu immunization requirement to enter school in January is in addition to existing vaccine requirements for all those attending child care, preschool, K-12, and colleges and universities in Massachusetts. Elementary and secondary students in districts and schools that are using a remote education model are not exempt.

Please provide documentation of your child’s flu vaccine to the school nurse prior to December 31, 2020. Please click here for more information on the flu vaccine requirement.
