As there continues to be concerns and questions related to the reopening of schools for the 2020-21 school year, we want to assure families our first priority is the safety and health of all students and staff. The district will continue working closely with the Whitfield County Health Department to determine the severity of COVID-19 in our community. We understand the challenges the novel Coronavirus brings and have plans in place to continue learning outside the classroom should the severity in our county rise.

Good afternoon Westside Families. During this unprecedented public health emergency due to the coronavirus, Whitfield County Schools has been following the guidance of the Georgia Department of Education, the Georgia Department of Public Health, and the Whitfield County Health Department. As we plan for the 2020-2021 school year, we hope circumstances will allow us to do face-to-face instruction in the Fall, but we are planning for all possibilities.
As we continue planning for the 2020-2021 school year, we want to hear from you. We invite you to take a few minutes to complete a parent/guardian survey to help guide our preparation to safely reopen schools. The survey will be available from June 16 - 30, 2020. The survey link is located HERE, on our Westside Middle School Facebook page, as well as our Whitfield County Schools District page. Please go to our page and take the survey. We need ALL of our Westside Families to take the survey in order for us to get your feedback to help us make plans on how to re-open school in the Fall. Only 1 survey per family is necessary.
Thank you for participating in our Parent Survey and supporting us in the preparations for the 2020-2021 school year. I hope you continue to stay safe and enjoy your summer. Go Rockets!
