Kindergarten Registration Is Still Open
Dear Ashburnham residents and parents of future John R. Briggs students:
Children who turn five years old by August 31, 2021 are eligible to register for kindergarten. Registration is now in process. We encourage you to complete this process as soon as possible. Enrollment packets can be picked up in the school front entryway, or found online at www.awrsd.org/jrb. Please call the school at 978- 827-5750 or email Paula Kuehl at email@example.com if you have any questions, or if your child will not be enrolling.
We look forward to welcoming another class of kindergarten students to John R. Briggs Elementary!

Notes From The Nurse
Thankfully we are able to enjoy some warmer weather. It is great that the children are able to get outside more and play. Just a reminder to check yourself, your children and your pets for ticks at least once a day or anytime you have been outdoors. Try to wear long pants and long sleeves when you plan to be out in the woods. Using EPA- approved repellents can be helpful to prevent tick and mosquito bites. If you do find a tick, carefully remove as soon as possible using fine-tipped tweezers. If you notice a rash or feel like you have the “flu”, contact your doctor.
Final Reminder to all parents/guardians of CURRENT 3rd Graders: If your child has had a physical in 2020 please have a copy forwarded to the health office if you have not already done so. If your child is in need of a physical, please make an appointment with their Primary Care Provider soon. If you need a form, please call the school nurse and one will be sent home. Physicals can always be faxed to the health office at 978-827-5699. Thanks for your prompt attention!
Parents/Guardians of 2nd Graders: Letters were sent home this week stating that a current physical (2021) is needed for entry into 3rd grade in the fall. If you have any questions, please call me at 978-827-5750 X5.
