Principal Steven Dudley says that the event is all part of the new culture at Radium, and that he intends to continue the event each nine weeks as the school year progresses. 👏👏👏

I think it is pretty bad sent my son to school this morning and they sent him home saying he has a fever we checked it and he did have not a fever we taking him to his doctors any way to prove it
Online contest open to all students K-12
Regardless if some kids werent in contact with this child or not shouldnt you be closing the school tomorrow and sanitizing the school ? Im really confused .....
One of my child 1st HW assignments is for her to watch the video of Jacob Blake being shot in back 7 times and write a paragraph about the video! 😳🤦🏾‍♀️ way to go Radium Springs! Great welcome to 6th grade
So when is Dougherty county starting virtual ? And when is sherwood giving the lap tops out ? Since i cant get a answer on the phone
Here is a Facebook comment from your Q-Anon entrenched Chief Operations Officer. Do you really think he should be on staff at a school district where children’s well-being is at stake?
Does your school/county realize they employee a full-on Qanon conspiracy theorist? Seems dangerous to have someone so out of touch with reality, who is also pushing conspiracy theories, be placed as the COO of a county school system.
For the kids with quick link cards, these badge holders with lanyard are $6 for a pack of 5 on Amazon. Much easier to hang up instead of trying to keep up with small card. Thought I would share with the other parents😊
When is sherwood elementary school giving out laptops?
