RECESS!

Recess is an important part of your child's day, but proper clothing is essential for making it enjoyable. Please be sure that your child wears appropriate footwear. Sneakers are great for running and playing on the playground equipment.

Please remember that the students are not the only ones who are thriving with the fine spring weather. Ticks are alive and well on school property as well as in other grassy and wooded areas in Walpole and all across the Northeast. 
Note that while ticks can transmit diseases such as Lyme Disease, they generally need to be embedded for at least 24 hours to do so. Therefore, diligent daily checking of the skin - your child's and yours - (by visual inspection and feeling) is essential to assure that any ticks that have adhered to the skin are removed.

Attention Grades 2 and 5 Parents/Guardians

State regulations indicate that schools must collect a copy of a physical exam upon a student’s entry to school and every few years thereafter. 

Since most students enter school in Kindergarten, Walpole is asking for these exams in grades 2, 5, 8 and 11.  If your child is in grades 2 or 5, please send the school nurse a copy of a physical exam that was completed after June 30, 2016.
