Nurse's Notes for Butler Families January 15, 2021

Thank you for all that you continue to do to ensure the health and safety of our Butler community. I understand that these are ongoing challenging and stressful times but it is imperative that we all continue to do our part to protect the health of our school community.

Daily Symptom Checking

Please remember to review the Symptom Checker every day before school.

If your child is experiencing symptoms, has been identified as a close contact, or has traveled outside of Massachusetts, be sure to keep them home, call the absence line, and fill out this form and I will be in touch regarding a plan for your child to return to school.

Travel outside of Massachusetts

With the long weekend upon us, I would like to remind you that Hawaii continues to be the only state identified as a low risk state. This means that per the travel order and BPS policy, travel outside of Massachusetts, even to neighboring states, PCR COVID testing is needed for your child to return to school.

If you travel outside of Massachusetts, please complete this form and submit PCR COVID test results to our school nurse before your child returns to school. To ensure the safety of everyone, please do not send your student to school until you receive clearance directly from the school nurse.

Please keep this in mind for all weekends and breaks, and as we prepare for the upcoming long weekend ahead.

4th Grade Physicals

Physical exams are due in the clinic for all Grade 4 students. If you have a current fourth grade student and have not yet submitted a 2020 physical, please do so. 4th grade physicals are required for hybrid and remote students.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. I am happy to be a resource for navigating during this continued challenging time.

Wishing you all health and hope in the new year,

Lisa Harteveldt, BSN, RN
