Health & Wellness Practices

In light of recent public health concerns and with the advent of flu season, Patty Wright, Nurse Leader for the Weston Public Schools; Wendy Diotalevi, Weston Public Health Director; Jane Brown, Public Health Nurse; and I met to review our protocols.

 

In keeping with our past practices, we are in continuous contact with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and our health officials monitor information from the Center for Disease Control.  We work closely with our Facilities Department to minimize infectious diseases through increased sanitation. We also recommend that Weston students and family members receive the flu vaccine. In addition, it is important that all members of the Weston community follow infection control guidelines:

 

*   Do not send children to school if sick with influenza like illnesses (view The Flu Symptom Checklist at:  www.mass.gov/flu )

*   Communicate with your child’s nurse regarding illness and related symptoms

*   Stay home for 24 hours after  fever abates without taking fever-reducing medications

*   Practice frequent and thorough hand washing and proper cough etiquette

*   Do not share eating utensils, cups or water bottles

“…[I]ncorporating…innovative technology may not change the way classes are taught this year, but it has started a revolution in how learning and teaching are being conceptualized. I’m excited to see what is to come from both students and teachers.” — Mary Liu, WHS science teacher and creator of edX’s “Ramp Up for AP Biology”

Weston Citizens' Academy Survey
Help the Town of Weston and Weston Public Schools gauge the interest in a Citizens' Academy that would provide community members an opportunity to learn more about the Town Government and the Weston Public Schools. Residents would tour Town and School facilities, meet with Department Managers and School Administrators, and engage in hands-on activities.
