School Nurse:  Ms. Shirley Brassell, LPN


Welcome back to school and to a new year!

·       I hope everyone had a safe and relaxing break. We’re officially half-way through the school year.

 

·       We are off on Monday January 16th in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King.

 

·       Georgia is currently experiencing an increase in flu-reported illnesses which are expected to continue to rise in the next several weeks. Remind students and staff to follow proper hand-washing procedures, cover their cough and sneezes, stay home if they are unwell, and get a flu vaccine if they haven’t already.

It’s that time of year again…stay tuned to WSB TV or the Cobb County website/emails/texts for information regarding school closings!

Cobb Count Student Health Information:

The Cobb County School District recognizes the importance of the health and welfare of students and staff. Therefore, the District establishes a school health service program to address the health and safety of students an staff. The program is staffed by a nursing supervisor, area consulting nurses, and licensed nurses in each school.

We coordinate with the Cobb County Board of Health in protecting children from certain symptoms of communicable diseases. Bringing a child to school with any symptoms of communicable illness puts other children at risk of getting sick. If all parents keep their sick children at home, we will have stronger, healthier and happier children. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, in the long run this means fewer lost workdays and less illness for parents too.

Please call Shirley Brassell, L.P.N. at Harmony Leland if you ever have any questions or concerns.
