From the Nurse’s office…COVID and Flu in GMHS.

As you have seen, covid has not disappeared from our lives.  If your child has any symptoms (congestion or runny nose, cough, fatigue, headache, stomachache or fever) please test your child before sending them to school.  If you need additional tests we can give them to you.

If your child develops symptoms during school we will call you and request testing.  We will only test your child with your consent.

Masks are not required in school (except for in the health office) but with the rising case numbers the school nurses are advocates of mask-wearing.  We have plenty of masks available if needed.

Also, we are dealing with cases of Flu A in school.  You can request a flu test from your doctor as well as a covid test.  If your child tests positive for either flu or covid please inform your school nurse.  It is very helpful information.

Thanks for all your cooperation during these trying year(s)!!

Please help us with issues with morning (7-7:30 a.m.) drop offs.

We are asking for some help at drop off in the morning before school.  We are experiencing a lot of traffic and also some unsafe conditions for students who walk or ride bikes to school.  We also have inexperienced student drivers who recently obtained their licenses.  Parents are not allowed to drop off students on school grounds from 7 to 7:30am– there is not enough space in the parking lot for it.  The easiest place to drop students off is at the Perley School for them to take the pathway and you can also drop off at the library, Park and Ride.  Middle School students can also come to school at 6:55am and play basketball etc. with our Jump Up and Go Program in the gym and avoid the traffic altogether.

We realize that our school does not have an ideal set-up from student drop off so we are asking for parent cooperation to make it as smooth and safe as possible.  Georgetown police officers will be on hand for the next few days to assist parents.  Parents of students with mobility issues (crutches etc.) may enter school grounds to drop off their child if needed.
