Flu Shots are now available at NO COST to residents at public health departments in Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens, and Whitfield Counties while supplies last.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend a three-step approach to fighting influenza (flu). The first and most important step is to get a flu vaccination each year. But if you get the flu, there are prescription antiviral drugs that can treat your illness. Early treatment is especially important for the elderly, the very young, people with certain chronic health conditions, and pregnant women. Finally, everyday preventive actions may slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like flu.
From time to time, we remind families about how we respond appropriately to bad weather. Part of that plan depends on our families (and staff) to keep their contact details up-to-date. When inclement weather affects the operation of schools and buses in Whitfield County Schools, we update the district website first. The most up-to-date information will always be published at wcsga.net.
We encourage all parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey, which is available in English or Spanish from Wednesday, Nov. 1 until Friday, March 29. The survey is modeled after the student survey and contains only 24 questions. It should only require five to 10 minutes for parents to complete the survey using a computer, smartphone, or tablet. Families without internet access should contact their school about completing the Georgia Parent Survey at the school.
Beaverdale Elementary, Cedar Ridge Elementary, and North Whitfield Middle School are among the 226 Georgia public schools honored today, an increase of 8 schools statewide over last year.
