Hemenway Tips & Reminders 


Dear Parents and Guardians,

It's that time of year once again! We are starting to see an increase in GI-related illnesses throughout the Hemenway students and staff. Over the last week, there has been an increase in complaints of headache followed by mild GI upset which then evolves, often suddenly, into vomiting. Additionally, there have been some students, the minority, who have also had suddenly-rising temperatures. This is not the Norovirus, which is often seen around this time of year and has lately been in the news. I know of no cases of Norovirus or Influenza in the students within the school district or the Hemenway population to date. Treatment of this viral infection is mainly rest and hydration.
The best way to limit the spread of these infections is to maintain good handwashing and to keep children home if they exhibit any symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, and fever. Please remember that if your child is ill, they must be fever-free (without medication) and vomit-free for 24 hours before returning to school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 508-782-6302.
Maureen Jones, Hemenway School Nurse

The Framingham Public Schools (FPS) has developed an online family information system called the Family Connection Portal.  The purpose of the Family Connection Portal is for parents/guardians to gain access to important student account information.  Families will be able to:

• Verify Address Information

• Share Arrival and Dismissal Plan with FPS

• Verify Emergency Contact Information

• Apply for Transportation

• Receive Bus Route Information (For security reasons, bus routes will no longer be available on the FPS website).

For more information, please read this flyer in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.


We Are A Multiple Intelligences School

Hemenway students are smart in lots of ways!


  Over the past years, teachers have taken courses on how the brain works and how to design lessons so that children of all different learning styles can access and master curricula standards. Our focus is on creating an environment at Hemenway that enables the children to delve into learning content areas in context. We want to create a place where the children can learn through real-life experiences, hands-on science, and current world events. We want them working on complex environmental problems and taking positions on social and environmental issues. We want them to be true world citizens.
