• First, thank you for planning ahead and trying to get everything together before school starts, we appreciate that.  However, you should not panic and think you have to have all the items listed on the first day of school.  These items will most likely not be needed the very first day, nor will your child be penalized if they don't have everything on the list.  That being said, we understand you will want to maximize your time, find the best deals, and minimize trips to the store, so the lists are posted below and also on the Whitfield County Schools website.
