·All medications need to have the original pharmacy label.

·EpiPen (epinephrine auto injectors) require a doctor’s order and a

Food, Allergy, & Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan. Please print and attach your child's photo, along with parent/guardian signature, and return to the School Nurse on the first day of school. These forms must be renewed as needed and updated at the beginning of each academic year.

Please call your child out sick before the start of the school day. Our school nurse, Arlene Gennari RN, can be reached at 781-599-4422 x2 or email agennari@ola.school

Parents are responsible for completing and providing all the health paperwork, Immunization records, and up-to-date physicals before a child can be allowed to attend school.

All students that are in need of taking medication, must provide proper documentation with the medication to the School Nurse, who will administer the medication at the prescribed time.
