  • 8 Tips for Fighting the Flu

    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.

  • Getting Ready for Winter Weather

    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.

  • Georgia Parent Survey

    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.
