18/19 School Year Requirements

posted Jul 13, 2018, 2:23 PM by Angela Avramidis   [ updated Jul 13, 2018, 2:33 PM ]

Please be aware that the state of Massachusetts, and Department of Public Health, require school nurses to collect physical exam reports for students in specific grades.


If this coming August your child will be entering:

  • Preschool,

  • Kindergarten,

  • Grade 4,

  • Grade 7, or

  • Grade 10

Please forward a copy of your child’s most recent physical examination to the school your child will be attending. Physicals and Health Forms may be faxed or mailed to the school during the summer.


Additionally, per state requirements, documentation of administration of both the Tdap vaccine and 2 doses of the Varicella vaccine must be submitted before 7th grade students can enter the Junior High School in the fall. You are receiving notification now in order to provide you with ample time to check your child’s immunization records, call their PCP to check their immunization status, and/or have them immunized before the coming school year begins.


Please check our website to view additional requirements and health information. Thank you in advance for your cooperation, and we are looking forward to seeing all of our students in the fall!

Substitute Nurses Needed!

posted Apr 18, 2018, 6:32 AM by Angela Avramidis   [ updated Apr 5, 2019, 7:20 AM ]

We are in need of District Substitute Nurses to fill in, as needed, at all 3 of our schools. This is very rewarding Per Diem employment, and looks great on a resume. It is also a great experience for anyone thinking about going into school nursing or individuals/parents looking to keep up their nursing license while working minimal hours. If you or anyone you know is interested and would like more info, please have them email Mrs. Avramidis at aavramidis@millburyschools.org. Thank you!


Breakfast/Snack

posted Dec 1, 2015, 5:53 AM by Angela Avramidis   [ updated Mar 29, 2019, 7:39 AM ]

Studies have shown that when students eat a good breakfast in the morning, they do better in school. Some students have difficulty eating a good breakfast due to lack of time or hunger in the early morning. Please try your best to encourage your children to eat a healthy breakfast before school and to bring a healthy snack into school. These snacks should be power packed foods that can be eaten quickly. The following are some good snack food options:
      • apples
      • grapes (sliced in half for younger children)
      • bananas
      • carrot sticks
      • celery sticks
      • crackers
      • pretzels
      • cheese
      • raisins
      • dry cereal
      • animal crackers
      • 100 calorie snack packs

Medication Administration

posted Oct 5, 2015, 5:42 PM by Angela Avramidis   [ updated Oct 27, 2015, 7:11 AM ]

Medication Administration

All public school systems in the Commonwealth are required to comply with regulations 105 CMR 210.000: The Administration of Prescription Medications in Public and Private Schools.

  • All medication, prescription and non-prescription (over the counter), requires a physician’s written order (excluding OTC cough drops) and must be in the original container.
  • All medication requires written consent from the parent/guardian. High School students receive notices on first day of school regarding Tylenol and/or Ibuprofen administration.
  • All medication must be transported to and from the school by a parent or guardian and delivered directly to the school nurse or designee.

Medications are kept in a locked cabinet in the nurse’s office and are only dispensed by the nurse. Any medications not claimed by the parents by the last day of school will be discarded. The school recognizes that self-carrying and self-administration of medication is required by some students. The school nurse must receive written physician/NP and written parent approval prior to allowing self- medication or self-carrying. The school nurse will determine if this is safe and appropriate to allow. 

***Please see Notices and Documents to print school medication administration form or bring in a signed hard copy medication order from your child's doctor. The doctor can also fax the medication order to the school nurse. The Nurses' contact information is on the main Health Services page.***
