Calling all second and fourth grade virtual students. Your math Envision books have arrived! We will have a drive-thru pick up for our virtual students to get their math Envision book on Friday, August 28, from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM. Please have a sign in your window with your child's first and last name, grade, and teacher. You may come anytime during the window and pull through the car rider line. Students will be completing assignments in the Envision workbook, so these books must be picked up.
A Note from Nurse G
Welcome back, Wildcats!
I know this year is starting differently than previous years, but I could not be more proud of how well everyone is doing wearing their masks, distancing from others, and cleaning their hands! Information regarding COVID-19 signs and symptoms can be found on the Restart Forsyth page. Remember, if a student or someone in the student's household has COVID-19 or is exposed to COVID-19, please keep the student home and notify your student's teacher, administration, or myself.
If your student has a health condition that may require additional support while at school (asthma, allergies, seizures, etc.) please visit BCE's school nurse webpage and click on forms. There you will find different action plans. Please choose the one that is appropriate for your student's needs, print it, and take it to your student's pediatrician to complete. Once completed please notify me and we can setup an appointment for you to bring in your child's medication. If no medication is required, you may send the form to school with your student.
Only together can we keep all our Wildcats healthy!
