JRB Family Newsletter
January 13, 2021
There has been a request from our staff to make sure that students at home remain on for the full meeting times. Once a teacher has dismissed students, the students can then return to the activities they were doing prior or that they need to do next. If you know that a child is going to miss a meeting time or that they will need to leave early, please contact the teacher prior to the meeting.

Reminder! Influenza Vaccine Requirement for School Attendance: Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12
Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, influenza vaccine will be required for all students. Influenza vaccine is always important to receive 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 will be 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.
Which students need to receive influenza vaccine?
Students in Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 12 will be required to receive influenza vaccine for the current influenza season for school attendance unless they have a medical or religious exemption.
When do students need to receive influenza vaccine?
Students must receive influenza vaccine for the current season by December 31, 2020.
Will influenza vaccine be required every year or just for the 2020-2021 school year?
Influenza vaccine is now a required vaccine for school attendance and will be required as of December 31 for all students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 each school year.
If my school will be providing instruction remotely, will students still need to meet immunization requirements?
The school immunization requirements, including the requirement for seasonal influenza vaccine, apply to all Massachusetts students enrolled in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12, regardless of whether the district is providing instruction in-person, or using a hybrid or remote learning model.
Please forward the record of this immunization to the Health Office/Nurse at school.
