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.
