Instructions for Unplanned Dismissals During School Hours

Illness

Students who are ill must report to the nurse at the Clinic. The nurse must assess the student, because of health requirements. The nurse will communicate with you to determine if dismissal is warranted and will then take necessary steps for dismissal. If your child contacts you to be dismissed due to illness, please make sure you send them to the nurse. The nurse’s office can be reached at 781-316-3563
