Vaccination Information Confirmation and Process for CHS and CMS

Good Morning Cohasset High School and Cohasset Middle School Families,

Please take a moment to log-in to Aspen under “Family Portal” to ensure that, if your child is vaccinated, that it is recorded as such under “Demographics” for each child. Under “Demographics” you will find a field identified as COVID Vaccination marked “Yes” if your child is recorded as vaccinated and “No” if your child is not recorded as vaccinated. This information, which can only be accessed by the appropriate and legally designated staff (nurses and school administrators), is used to determine if your child is allowed to unmask while in Cohasset Middle School and Cohasset High School per Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) approval. Beginning on December 6, 2021 at Cohasset High School and on January 1, 2022 at Cohasset Middle School, vaccinated students and staff are / will be able to remove masks. If there is an error in this field, please email your building principal and follow-up with proof of vaccination to your child’s school nurse. A reminder that proof of your child’s vaccination, submitted to your child’s school nurse, can be provided in one of the following ways:

  • A signed self-attestation completed by a parent / legal guardian of the child indicating the brand of vaccine; or 
  • Documentation provided to the individual by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health or a health care provider. Documentation may include but is not limited to a COVID-19 vaccination record card or a copy or digital picture of the vaccination record card, or a print-out from the Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS).

 Cohasset High School administration has sent clear messaging to students regarding the need for compliance with masking and will be meeting individually with students about the mask requirements. Cohasset Middle School administration will do the same when the mask mandate is lifted at the middle school for vaccinated students and staff. If you have questions regarding accessing your Aspen Family Portal, please email:
