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?
