Whitfield County Gifted Screening

Whitfield County Schools participates in a gifted screening process every year. The consideration window will begin immediately and end on January 20th. School personnel and parents may nominate their student for this consideration. In order to follow the system guidelines, nominations will not be accepted after January 20th. Please contact the school if you have any questions.

Winter Weather School Closings

In the event school is cancelled due to inclement weather, the Whitfield County Schools’ Blackboard Connect will call homes. It is important that we have your child’s current address and home phone number in our system in order for our calls to be successful. If your number has changed since the beginning of school, please send in the correct information to your child’s teacher. Also, listen to local radio stations or watch Chattanooga TV stations for announcements of school closings due to weather conditions

Morning Routines- Student Drop-Offs

All student drop-offs in the morning should be at the back entrance at the car rider drop-off area. We are having an increasing number of students dropped off in the mornings at the front doors. This area is not monitored by adults and has a high traffic flow. Please let your students out in the back where the doors remain unlocked and there is adult supervision until 7:50. Note: Students are counted tardy after 7:40.
