  • Rumors, Safety, and Moving Forward

    This has been a very stressful week in our schools and community. The aftermath of the shootings in Florida along with the false rumors and fallacious threats spreading on social media, plus the horrific incident that occurred at Dalton High School on Wednesday, has created a stressful environment in which to teach and to learn. We hope this will let you know what steps we are taking to keep your children safe and secure in all of our schools.

  • 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.
