Greetings from the Health Office!

I hope that everyone is getting a chance to enjoy this warm spring weather and sunshine! With the warmer weather comes the resurgence of ticks. Some helpful tips to prevent tick bites and Lyme disease are to:

  • Perform daily tick checks
  • Avoid brushy and wooded areas when outdoors
  • Wear long sleeved, light colored shirts
  • Wear pants with your socks tucked in
  • Use insect repellent when outdoors


If you find a tick bite on you, monitor for flu like symptoms and/or a rash for up to 30 days after the tick bite. Contact your child’s pediatrician if they develop any of these symptoms after a recent tick bite. Please visit the following website for additional information on ticks: https://www.mass.gov/service-details/tick-borne-educational-materials


Required 4th Grade Physical Exams
:

Massachusetts Department of Public Health regulations require a physical examination, including documentation of immunizations, and vision screening in kindergarten, fourth grade, seventh grade and tenth grade, and for transfer students into any grade. This good health practice exists for the prevention and early detection of health problems as well as for the protection of all children in the public school system. For all students currently in 4th grade or 5th grade students that did not submit a physical due to the school closure last spring, please forward a copy of this physical exam at your earliest convenience. You may send in, email or fax a copy of these physical exams to lkilduff@nrsd.net, or via secure nurse fax at 978-965-3967.


Warm regards,
