As there continues to be questions and concerns related to the reopening of schools, we want to assure families our first priority is the safety and health of all students and staff. We understand the challenges the novel Coronavirus brings and have plans in place to continue learning in the classroom, while offering virtual instruction for families who do not feel comfortable sending their child(ren) to school. For more information on our district reopening plans, please click the link above.
With the majority of Whitfield County students returning for in-person instruction by October 29, our teachers will no longer be able to provide virtual instruction for students learning from home. Beginning November 2, WCS virtual students will begin learning through online programs outsourced by the district. For more information, please click the link above.
Due to the reduced number of local COVID-19 cases, the high schools of Whitfield County will continue steps to safely bring our high school students back to a normal schedule.

At Crossroads Academy, we are always striving to keep our students safe. With the current situation with COVID-19, we are taking precautions to minimize the spread of the virus. Here are some changes in our program:
1) We require all students and teachers to have a mask with them at all times. This is to be worn in situations where social distancing cannot take place. For example, if a student needs individual assistance, we will ask both the student and teacher to wear a mask. Masks must be plain in color
2) We will be social distancing to the greatest extent possible. Students will not switch classes and will eat breakfast and lunch in their homeroom. We understand that students will need to move around, so we have built in extra breaks within our schedule.
3) Students will have their temperature checked before entering our building in the morning. Students with a fever will be isolated and parents will be notified immediately.
4) Our building will be cleaned and sanitized several times per day. Our staff will conduct frequent classroom cleanings during the day, and our custodial services will take extra precautions in sanitizing our building at night.
We want you to know that we are taking every step possible to keep your child safe while they are in our building. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
