Message from the Nurse, Mrs. Sorrento

Happy New Year!

Did you know?

Your student may purchase breakfast in the school cafeteria? The cost is $1.50. Often students will miss breakfast due to not having enough time, not being hungry that early, or long bus rides. Going without breakfast may result in lethargy, lack of attention in class and headache. Students may visit the cafeteria before homeroom to buy breakfast.

Common Concerns in the JMS Health Office

We have had many students reporting transient nausea accompanied by headache, stomach virus (diarrhea and/or vomiting), cold symptoms, and FLU.  If you student has been diagnosed with flu please report to the JMS Health office as we keep track of this information.

From the Student Handbook

Illness - Children who are ill with a temperature over 100, or who have diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, undiagnosed rashes, uncontrolled coughing, impetigo, or conjunctivitis should remain at home. If your child is ill with a fever they must be "Fever Free" for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of TYLENOL, MOTRIN, or any other fever reducing medication before they can return to school.

AS ALWAYS: If your child is going to be absent or is going to be late

PLEASE REMEMBER TO CALL THE SCHOOL if your child is going to be out sick or late. We must call home for every student that has not been called in. Due to the time of the year, health office visits are on the rise, we would prefer to attend to the students coming into the health office than to have to call home to check on absences.  We appreciate your assistance.

If you have questions about the JMS health office, or if your child has health concerns, please feel free to contact me at 508-660-7242, option 2; or ssorrento@walpole.k12.ma.us.  

Thank you!

Art Room Donations Request

If you have old wrapping paper, wallpaper rolls, ribbon, fabric, yarn, and decorative bags from shopping.   These items are great for collaging!

The Art room still needs catalogs, newspapers, magazines, yarn, and anything you think students could use for collages and masks. 

Thank you for your support and donations!
