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! 

Keep an eye out for dates/ offerings for the 19/20 school year in late fall of 2019...

19/20 School Year Requirements

posted Jul 13, 2018, 2:23 PM by Angela Avramidis   [ updated Jul 31, 2019, 1:45 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 Jul 31, 2019, 1:52 PM ]

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 Thank you!

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
