Our school district is in very close communication with the our school physician, the Hamilton and Wenham Boards of Health, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), and the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in regard to seasonal and H1N1 flu.
We are carefully following all advisories and guidelines issued by authorities. We are also stressing preventative measures with all students and staff. Please see government sites for more information about prevention. We encourage you to contact your child’s school nurse if you have questions or concerns (see phone listing below).
