Medical Needs Notice 20/21

posted Sep 3, 2020, 8:17 AM by Angela Avramidis   [ updated Sep 3, 2020, 8:18 AM ]

Good Afternoon Millbury Families,

This email is for all parents/ guardians of students who will be taking medications during school hours and/or have a special healthcare need necessitating Doctor’s Orders or an Individualized Healthcare Plan. 

All school orders must be updated yearly. Please have your child’s physician, or PCP, fax renewed orders to their school, ATTN: School Nurse:

Orders need to be renewed for scheduled, as needed, and emergency medications, including inhalers and automatic epinephrine injectors. If your child wishes to self-carry an inhaler or epinephrine, please ask your doctor to make a note of this on the order. 

The school nurses will be available for medication drop off on Wednesday, September 9th from 9am to 12pm and Thursday, September 10th from 12pm to 2:30pm. Parents may drop in during this time to bring in medications and/or orders. At this time, we are not allowing visitors in the schools, so the nurses will have a station set up at each school’s entrance. We ask that you call the clinic on your arrival, and the nurse will meet you outside, at the entrance of the school. 

  • Elmwood Street School: Cynthia Romeo,, Ph: 508-865-0844, Fx: 508-865-3420

  • Shaw School: Pamela Perkins,, Ph: 508-865-0870, Fx: 508-865-3430 

  • MJSHS: Angela Avramidis,, Ph: 508-865-3256, Fx: 508-865-5845

All medications should be dropped off by a parent or guardian and must be in the original container/ prescription bottle. The first day of school for students is Monday, September 14th. Depending on the school that your child attends, their Health and Emergency Information form has either been mailed to you or will go home with students on the first day of school. If you received the form via mail, please be sure to fill it out and send it to school with your child on their first day back.

Thank you,

Angela Avramidis

Nurse Leader, Millbury Public Schools

The Millbury Public Schools is happy to announce an opportunity for our highschoolers to become certified in CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) use through the American Heart Association

Through generous donations from the Lions Club, the Millbury Parents Club, Donors Choose, and the Blackstone Valley Education Foundation, the program was offered to students this past school year at no cost. 43 students and 44 staff took advantage of this program during the 2019 school year and became CPR & AED certified through the AHA!
