 “Healthy Students Learn Better”

The mission of Ludlow Public Schools Health Services is to promote health and safety in support of student learning. Because health is essential to optimal learning, our nurses strive to maximize each student’s health by maintaining and providing health care and needs to every child.  We strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of children.

The school nurse is available during normal school hours:

Ludlow High School                      7:05 AM -- 2:00 PM

Baird Middle School                      7:45 AM -- 2:45 PM

Elementary/Early Childhood        8:30 AM -- 3:30 PM 

The school nurse is not available for any activities that take place before or after school. Maintaining communication with your child's school nurse is very important. It is vital that parents provide the school with up-to-date emergency numbers in the event school officials need to reach you during these times. In addition please make sure that all health information and records are accurate and up-to-date. Should your child's health status change during the school year, please be sure to notify your school nurse. Thank you for your continued assistance, cooperation, and support as we strive to keep all students safe and well.


Important Measles Information  

  • Measles is very contagious.  Nine out of ten people who aren’t protected against measles will be infected if exposed (source: CDC and Mass. DPH) 

  • Unsure if you’re protected against measles? Talk with your physician if you can’t find records of immunity.  Another MMR dose will not harm you

  • No child should die from vaccine preventable diseases.   Your best protection against measles is MMR vaccine. It’s safe and effective. Make sure you’re up to date on MMR.    http://1.usa.gov/1k3FTb8
