Term 1 Progress Reports

posted Oct 2, 2015, 8:43 AM by Tom Reeve   [ updated Oct 2, 2015, 8:44 AM ]

Term 1 Progress Reports are now available through iParent for all students. 

During advisory today, students in grades 9, 10, and 11 received paper copies of their progress reports to discuss with their advisors. Seniors will not receive paper copies (seniors have privileges to leave and do not attend advisory) but will be able to view their grades through iParent. 

Progress reports are a check-in to see how students are progressing with their learning, with plenty of time remaining in the term to continue improving their comprehension of the material and grades. Students who are struggling are encouraged to meet with their teachers to develop strategies to increase their comfort with the material and their understanding of the course. Guidance counselors are also available for any students or parents/guardians who want to discuss progress in courses. 

For families who do not yet have an iParent account, please sign up here.

According to Holliston Public School Policy
  • All medications taken by students during the school day must be administered by the school nurse. Students are Not Allowed to carry any medication with the exception of emergency medications (e.g. epinephrine. asthma inhalers ) which must have the proper documentation (Licensed Prescriber written order and signed parental consent on file).M.G.L.105.CMR 210.00 – MGL C.30A S.8 C112.S.80B 

  • Our School MD has written orders for standard dosages of Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen and an antacid (e.g. generic tums) which may be administered after school nurse assessment. Written parental consent for these medications must be on file in the nurse’s office. Please return Pink Emergency Information Forms to the Main Office ASAP.

  • Student illness and/or injury during the school day must be reported to the school nurse. If a dismissal is warranted, the school nurse will contact the parent/guardian to make arrangements for dismissal.

  • Fever is a symptom of illness and not an actual diagnosis. Fever usually indicates that the body is battling an infection. A student with a fever greater than 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit needs to stay home from school until the fever is gone for at least 24 hours without taking any –fever reducing medications

  • A student with vomiting, with or without diarrhea, needs to stay home from school until the symptoms have stopped and the student is able to tolerate a regular diet. In addition, please contact your physician and keep your child home if they have a persistent disrupting cough or copious green or yellow nasal secretions.

  • A student returning to school after an accident, operation, or serious illness must present a doctor’s certificate stating that he/she may resume a full program including athletics or that he/she requires a modification of her/his school program to meet her/his physical needs. A student returning to school after a communicable disease must present a doctor’s certificate stating that the student is free from the disease in its communicable form. Any student diagnosed with a concussion must provide a medical note from their own physician stating the diagnosis and any accommodations that may be necessary.
