Holliston students need you!

We are facing a shortage of Paraprofessionals to support our students as school prepares to open on August 28, 2023.  Our paraprofessionals are often our unsung heroes in the background and forefront working with our general and special education students and are critical in order to safely meet the needs of students!

  We need:

  • Full-time and part time staff ( Starting at $19.00/hr or higher)

  • Short-term employment

  • Volunteers!

Do you have 1 or more days per week to commit? We would love to hear from you.

Public School employees of Massachusetts are required to submit their fingerprints to a National Criminal Database check. The check will require you to pay a fee of $55 if you hold an Educator’s License, or $35 if you are an unlicensed employee. In addition to the national background check, a satisfactory Massachusetts Criminal Record Check (CORI) is required.

With influenza (flu) activity increasing nationally, and troubling early data showing drops in flu vaccine uptake this season, CDC has issued an urgent reminder about the importance of vaccinating for flu. Hospitalization rates in kids are among the highest seen at this time in about a decade so far this season.


Remember, your strong recommendation is a key factor in whether people get vaccinated.


Getting a flu shot is the most important action a person can take to prevent flu and its potentially serious complications. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine as soon as possible. Encourage flu vaccination by sharing the following messages and resources with patients, especially those at higher risk, and those with parents of young children.


The flu vaccine:

  • Reduces the risk of flu illness
  • Can make illness less severe among people who get vaccinated, but still get sick with flu, reducing the risk of serious flu complications, such as hospitalization
  • Can be given at the same time as a COVID-19 vaccine, for people who are due for both
  • Protects against four different flu viruses - even if a patient has already gotten flu, other flu viruses are circulating and it’s possible to get flu more than once a season


Groups at higher risk of serious illness from flu include:

Adults 65 Years and Older

Children under 5

  • Flu is more dangerous than the common cold for children, and healthy children 5 years and older can spread flu to vulnerable family members like infants younger than 6 months and adults over 65

During Pregnancy

  • Due to changes to the immune system, heart, and lungs during pregnancy make people more susceptible to potentially serious flu complications. Flu may also be harmful for a developing baby.
