The State of Massachusetts, as well as Lenox Public Schools, requires all 7th and 11th graders to provide an updated physical exam and a copy of current Immunization Record.

In an effort to keep our school community safe and healthy, please keep students at home if they are not feeling well or have symptoms of illness.  Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns regarding your student’s medical documentation or health and wellbeing, 413-637-5560 ext. 2 or email: jdrees@lenoxps.org.
