Call Me

If your child is going to be absent, please call me at 781-794-8420, and then press 1. There is no need to wait for school hours. If you happen to know in the middle of the night that your child is ill, please call and leave a message.

Your message should include:

Nurse Sara's News for January, 2020


I hope that everyone had a wonderful winter break and was able to fit in a little rest and relaxation! Here are a few reminders:

It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to review the school breakfast/lunch menus for any possible allergens. If you have any nutrition/ingredient concerns, please contact the Food Services Director, Sarah Coughlin, at sarah.coughlin@braintreeschools.org.

Reminders about when to keep your child home sick:

  • Fever of 100 degrees or higher - child must be fever free without the use of fever reducing medication for 24 hours before returning to school
  • Vomiting or diarrhea - symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school
  • Constant cough or runny nose
  • Red and/or itchy eye with discharge

If you received a referral notice for hearing and vision in the fall, please send in the follow up paperwork from the physician. Proper hearing and vision are crucial to successful learning.

Finally, any baby wipe donations are greatly appreciated for the health office.

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
