Weston Public Schools is extending our heartfelt sympathies to Laurie Melchionda’s family. Laurie was our Director of Health Services and the Field School nurse. We are all devastated by this loss of such a tremendous person. She was an incredibly dedicated healthcare professional and an outstanding person who gave her all to the communities she served, both here in Weston and in her beloved home town of Braintree. Laurie was leading our work here in Weston during this time of COVID, working throughout the entire town making sure the safety of all residents remained paramount. She embodied all of the positive traits of a high quality nurse including empathy, dedication, confidence and a compassionate, compelling bedside manner. Laurie’s zest for life and love of her family were evident in all that she did and will always be cherished. This loss has been devastating to all faculty and staff. Our focus remains on the well-being of our students over the next days and going forward while also continuing to extend our condolences to the entire Melchionda family. Our deepest sympathies to all of Laurie’s loved ones at this time.
Dr. Midge Connolly, Superintendent
