Attention all BHS Freshman and Juniors who are leasing computers.

Yes, we all have! As the temperature gauge drops and cold and flu season continues, please help the Nurse’s Office to teach your children the difference between feeling truly ill and not feeling 100%. There is often a balance between staying home due to illness and not attending school because one is not at his/her “best.” Please don’t coax your child to school by promising to pick him/her up if he/she goes to the School Nurse. This encourages frequent visits for minor complaints.
Learning how to persevere even when one isn’t feeling “great” is a life lesson. If you truly have concerns about your child’s health or simply want to discuss the “balancing act” of gauging illness, don’t hesitate to contact the school nurses, Kim Pappas, Cathy Ober, or Jodi Elder at 978-921-6132, extension 11126. No one wants truly sick children at school, but we want to measure our responses to common colds. (You may be surprised that students don’t visit the Nursing Office during lunch!)
