A special thank you to our community fundraiser partners, especially Modern ObGyn. They continue to support our school in such tremendous ways. Other community sponsors included Your Pie, The Fringe Mini Golf, Moe's, Launch Trampoline Park, Creative Escapes, Chili's and Get Air.

A Recess Note from Nurse G - Please Read

Your child’s health and safety is very important to us at Big Creek. The CDC and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta both encourage outside recess as a part of their health promotion and increased classroom concentration. Weather permitting, each class goes outside for 30 minutes of recess daily.


If your child has a chronic condition that would prevent them from participating in their usual class routine a physician’s note will be needed. When a physician’s note is received, stating a child may not participate in outdoor activities, please be mindful that would also include Field Day or any other outdoor class activities.


The form to be completed by your physician can be found on the Big Creek Elementary Web Page. Click on School Nurse under the Student Services Tab, then on the left hand side, click Health Forms. The needed form is titled Individualized Health Care Plan. Once the form is completed by you and your child’s physician, please send it in with your student.


I appreciate you taking your time to help me be able to give great care to your child. I look forward to seeing your student continue to thrive this year. Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions or concerns.


Sincerely,

Nurse G
