  • Solar Eclipse Information (Different Dismissal Time on Aug. 21)
    Dr. Gilreath, Superintendent of Schools, has decided that Whitfield County School System will extend our school day on Monday, August 21 by thirty (30) minutes due to the total solar eclipse.
     
    Some basic information on the eclipse (taken from GSBA:RMS):
    • On August 21, 2017, a total eclipse will shadow a 65 mile-wide path through 14 states, beginning in Oregon and exiting the South Carolina coast. It is estimated that, weather permitting, 500 million people will stand in the moon’s shadow on that day. The entire event will touch the U.S. for only 1 hour, 33 minutes and 16.8 seconds.
    •  
    • A solar eclipse is a lineup of the Sun, the Moon, and Earth. The moon, directly between the Sun and Earth, casts a shadow on our planet. If you are in the dark part of that shadow, you will see a total eclipse. If you are in the light part, you will see a partial eclipse. Everyone in the continental U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse.
    •  
    • For Georgians, the only place to see the total eclipse is the very northeast corner of Georgia. The centerline path of the eclipse just barely touches the state in Rabun and Stephens County. The general Atlanta area should see a partial eclipse in the range of 97 percent. The majority of the State of Georgia will be in the range of totality (NE corner) to 90% partial.
    The following are links to various resources on the eclipse:

    Here are a few key safety tips:

    • Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun. (Ordinary sunglasses transmit many thousands of times more light than special-purpose eclipse glasses!)
    • The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters (“eclipse glasses” or handheld viewers).
    • Seek expert advice before using a solar filter with a camera, telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device.
    • Never look at the Sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer.
    • You must always use safe solar filters to view the Sun directly.

  • 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.

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.
