A Message from the Nurse

The health office at Clarke School is looking for donations of gently used pants in the event a child spills something on themselves or if they get them wet at recess.
I am looking for both boys and girls from size 6-14.  Sweatpants, leggings or jeans will do. If you have any that you are not using or looking to donate, please send them in to the Clarke Nurse, Ann Hudson!

Thank you so much!

Ann Hudson, RN
Clarke School Nurse


SWAMPSCOTT PUBLIC SCHOOL
ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
FOOD ALLERGY NOTICE REMINDER
2017-2018

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Our elementary schools have several children in grades K-4 who have life-threatening allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, nut products and other types of foods. Strict avoidance of the allergen is the only way to prevent a life-threatening allergic reaction. For this reason, every classroom in the elementary schools will be ALLERGY AWARE/NUT-FREE. This includes both snack and lunch time, as well as any planned school celebrations that may include food.

When packing your child’s snack or lunch, please be careful to check food labels to ensure that it does not contain any peanut or nut products.  This includes food products with labels stating
“May contain traces of peanut/nut products” or processed in a facility”.  We need all classrooms regardless of whether there is a student with an allergy in that class, to follow the peanut/tree nut protocol.

Please contact the school nurse if you would like a sample list of peanut and nut-free products. Sunbutter is a good alternative if your child likes peanut butter sandwiches! If you do use sunbutter, please just label the baggie to show that it is sunbutter, not peanut butter.

Thank you for your diligence and support in this very important matter.  Please contact your school nurse with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Ann Hudson RN, Clarke School  781-596-8812
Jane Cassidy RN, Stanley School 781-596-8837
Jennifer Miller RN, Hadley School 781-596-8847

Dear Clarke Families,

      The Clarke School Staff would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for being so thoughtful and kind during a very difficult few days after  hearing the news of the passing of our beloved Music teacher and friend Ms. Phyllis Gotlib. She had such a vibrant energy and palpable passion for teaching music. She absolutely loved every minute of it! As we continue to process this loss we will be coming together to think of some beautiful ways in which we can honor her memory.
We have appreciated all of the sympathetic condolences from all of you.

Warmly,
The Clarke School Staff
Ms. Gotlib with some of her precious students
the night of her Winter Chorus Concert.
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind,
flight to the imagination and life to everything”
