Brrrr! Chilly weather ahead

We would like to remind parents that as a rule of thumb, we will have outdoor arrival and recess unless the temperature drops below 20 degrees F real feel.  We use the weather site to monitor and make a determination regarding indoor or outdoor recess.

Boots, hats, socks and mittens or gloves and possibly snowpants are necessary for outdoor play.  Children who are not dressed appropriately may have to spend recess inside.

Please remember to make sure your child brings sneakers to change into for physical education and shoes or sneakers for classroom activities.

SNAP Health Portal

The Wellesley Nursing Department is pleased to announce the launch of the SNAP Parent Health Portal. The health portal is an online platform that gives you direct access to your student’s health record and streamlines communication and health services directly with your school nurse in a faster, secure, and meaningful way. Read more about the SNAP Health Portal on the WPS Nursing website.

Log into PowerSchool using the same username and password you use to access report cards and click the SNAP Health Portal icon on the left sidebar.

Reminder from the School Nurse

Students receiving antibiotics for a contagious condition such as strep throat must stay out of school until 24 hours of antibiotic therapy has been completed. Excessive coughing and nasal discharge and generally not feeling well are indications that the child should remain home.

If your child has a temperature of 100 degrees or above (taken orally) in the morning, it is recommended that (s) he remain home. Students should remain home for 24 hours after a fever has subsided without the use of fever-reducing medication such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Motrin). If your child develops a fever during school hours, they will not be allowed to return to the classroom and will remain in the health office until dismissed to a parent/guardian or their designee.
