Cold & Flu Season is Approaching
Parents, if your child has thrown up at least twice in one day, it is Gwinnett County policy that they stay home for 24 hours from the last time of getting sick. Also remember your child must be fever free 24 hours without the use of Tylenol, acetaminophen, Advil, Motrin or ibuprophen (or any fever reducer) before returning. This will keep a virus from spreading – helping other students and staff to stay well. Thanks in advance – the clinic.

North Metro Baptist Church has a vision of sharing God’s love with local families in tangible ways during the 2016 Christmas season. They are asking for my help in identifying those families for their community project: Love Beyond: Give this Christmas Away. With Love Beyond, the people of North Metro are prepared to assist local families experiencing a crisis resulting in significant or unique needs. Their crisis may be the recent death of a parent or child within the immediate family, the loss of a home or job/income, a recent major accident or illness, etc. Please let me know, if you need assistance before November 1. Thanks!
