Health Guidelines School Year 2020 – 2021

In August 2020 Governor Baker along with State Health Officials announced that the influenza immunization is required for all children 6 months of age or older who are attending Massachusetts schools by December 31, 2020, unless either a medical or religious exemption is provided. Students that are attending both in person and/or remote are required to have this immunization. 

If you have not done so already please send in your immunization documentation to Mrs. Zuidema (dzuidema@frrsd.org) our School Nurse. If you received your immunization at the Flu Clinic held here at Farmington River please contact Heather Barbieri, Director of Emergency Management at Fairview Hospital at 413-854-9656 or email her at hbarbieri@bhs1.org to arrange for your immunization record to be sent to the school. 

If you have any questions please give Mrs. Zuidema a call at 413-269-4466 ext 146.
