It's Not Too Late to Get Your Flu Vaccine!

Happy Friday from the Health Office!

It’s not too late to get your flu vaccine!
U.S. State and local influenza surveillance indicates that rates of flu-like illness rose again over the past seven days – an indication that flu season is not over yet and that there is still plenty of reason to get a flu shot if you haven’t done so yet.  If you can’t get the flu vaccine from your provider, go to to find a local pharmacy or municipal health department that may still have flu vaccine available.

HealthMap Vaccine Finder
HealthMap Vaccine Finder is a free, online service where users can search for locations that offer immunizations. We work with partners such as clinics, pharmacies, etc.





Per MIAA, all athlete physicals must be within 13 months of the start of the season and must remain current throughout the season.  An athlete without a physical will NOT be able to participate until they are current.  If you have a question about a physical, please feel free to email or call Lisa, the school nurse.



Opioid Misuse Prevention for Student Athletes AND Concussion

The law requires that information on opioid use and misuse and concussion information be read by all athletes and their parents.   Once the documents are read, they must then be signed off by both parents and the athletes attesting that they were read.  The reading is on the Parker home page under Athletics and then Forms.  Please return the signed documents for both Opioid Misuse Prevention and Concussion to your student’s coach, Ben Benoit, or Lisa Zick.  No athlete can participate until the signed documents are returned.




SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment) – Screening to be begin after February Vacation for 7th and 9th Graders!

Information regarding SBIRT went out by email on January 25th
to all 7th and 9th grade parents.

As with any school screening, you have the right to opt your child out of participation.  Additionally, screening is voluntary and students may choose not to answer any or all screening questions.  Please notify Lisa Zick, school nurse, in writing by February 25, 2018, if you would prefer that your 7th or 9th grade student not participate in this screening.  Lisa Zick can be reached by phone at (978)772-3293 x135 or by email at  Please call or email if you have any questions.
