Please keep your children home until they are fever free without medication for 24 hours. If your child has fever, they are CONTAGIOUS! Also, if your child has been vomiting/diarrhea, please keep them home. Remember to wash hands with soap and hot water and to cover your cough. 

Flu Symptoms are achy head, dry cough (can be severe), decreased appetite, achy muscles, fever/chills, fatigue (weakness) can last 2 weeks.

Georgia Parent Survey

Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, school administrators should consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents should be encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.
