Dear Merrill Families

We are starting the week with increased absences of students and staff due to respiratory and flu-like illnesses. At school we are proactively cleaning and disinfecting high-contact surface areas each night as part of our cleaning routine. We are also emphasizing routine hand washing and sanitizing throughout the day and opening windows to increase air circulation.

Your cooperation in monitoring your child’s symptoms is appreciated. While we certainly want students attending school every day, please keep your child home if they are experiencing symptoms such as fever.  Please remember that students must be fever-free for a full 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications like Tylenol or Motrin.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Nurse Maclean in the Health Office at 508-824-2731 or email

Thank you,

Deb Westell, Principal

Craig Poulos, Assistant Principal
