CORI/FINGERPRINTING information for BPS Employees :

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in order to protect children, requires that school officials obtain criminal background information to determine the suitability of current and prospective employees. This information is obtained through two sources: the CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) system, which stores information on Massachusetts criminal history; and the SAFIS (Statewide Applicant Fingerprint Identification Services) program, which conducts fingerprint-based background checks through the FBI’s national criminal history database.

As a new employee of the Braintree Public Schools, you will be asked to consent to a CORI check, which will be repeated every three years. More information here

Flu information:

2015 Checklist is available - here

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you may already know, influenza (flu) activity is widespread across the United States, at high intensity in many locations. It is likely that it will peak in Massachusetts within the next few weeks.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health, like the Center of Disease Control (CDC), recommends a three-pronged approach to influenza prevention and control:
· Vaccination – there is still time to get vaccinated.

· Everyday prevention: handwashing, cough etiquette, and staying home when sick.

· Treatment – antivirals like Tamiflu are most effective when started early after symptom onset.

A new CDC brochure titled “Take Three Actions to Fight the Flu” is available at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/pdf/freeresources/general/take3.pdf

For questions and concerns about influenza, please call your school nurse, the Braintree Board of Health at 781-794-8094 or the Massachusetts Department of Public Health at 617-983-6800.

CDC also has excellent influenza resources at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm
