  • The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads.   The survey window opens November 1, 2017 and runs through March 29, 2018. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating.

    Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  If you do not have access to the Internet, please stop by the front office and a hard copy will be made available for you.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.

  • 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.
