Notes from Nurse G
Flu season is here and the county’s flu count is on the rise! When students wake up not feeling well, it can be hard to decide if they should attend school. Please visit the school nurse page of New Hope’s website here to help you answer that question. If your child tests positive for any contagious illness (i.e, flu, strep throat, impetigo, novovirus, mono, fifth’s disease, hand, foot, & mouth, etc.) please notify your student’s teacher and Nurse G.
I have received many questions regarding COVID. For our most current county guidelines, please visit https://www.forsyth.k12.ga.us/covid. This website will have the most current information. If your child tests positive for COVID you may email your student’s teacher and myself, email@example.com. Depending on the time of day, I will either call you that same day or the next business day to discuss when your child may return to school.
As always if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Your Partner in Health,
Gillian Sampson, RN

The Sound of Music will win the hearts of the FoCAL audiences with this inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, following a young nun in-training who serves as governess to the seven children of the authoritative Captain von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. As the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire von Trapp family must make a moral decision. The Sound of Music features the classics… Climb Every Mountain, My Favorite Things, Do Re Mi, and Sixteen Going on Seventeen to name a few.
