Update from Mrs. Hilliard, School Nurse

We would like to express our sincere appreciation to our Boutwell families for following and complying with our established COVID protocols and the student attendance policy. If you would like to submit your child’s proof of COVID vaccination to Mrs. Hilliard, please email it to her directly. This is not a requirement, however, having this information will be helpful when we have to conduct contact tracing. We encourage our families to continue to have constant communication with our school nurse regarding any health questions or concerns. She can be contacted at 978-694-6026 or by email at


Winter Clothing

As the temperatures continue to become colder, please have your child wear a warm winter jacket, hat, mittens, or gloves. We bring students outside as much as possible and we want to make sure they are dressed for the weather. We kindly ask that you please label your child’s clothing as well! It helps us tremendously when trying to locate someone’s favorite lost mitten!
