Gabriel

Gabriel after cut

Eastside Elementary student, Gabriel Haney, has spent the last three years growing out his hair in order to donate it to help make wigs for cancer patients and other hair loss illnesses. He got the idea after seeing his grandmother endure hair loss from cancer treatments. He wanted to help those like his grandmother. Last week, Gabriel was able to donate almost 16 inches of hair. You can read more about Gabriel's heart-warming story at the Fox 5 link below.

 Gabriel, we are #PSDproud of you!

Airborne Viruses

As a result of the recent news reports concerning the coronavirus, the district would like to share with everyone the precautionary steps we are taking to prevent the spread of all contagious flu-like viruses.

The district has been in constant communication and working with the Polk County Department of Health, Georgia Department of Public Health, and Polk-Floyd Medical Center.  Updates are provided to us on a regular basis as new information arises.

Each Polk School District school has a registered nurse provided by Polk-Floyd Medical Center, as well as a physician’s assistant at Polk School District Health Clinic currently located at Rockmart Middle School.  The hospital provides our nurses with the necessary information and guidance to address preventative measure of all viruses.

The measures our district has put in place thus far include educating our faculty, staff and students in healthy, preventative actions and sanitizing all common or gathering places, drinking fountains, door handles and work areas.

In addition, please find below a list of preventative measures that can be done at home and with your family. 

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water.
  • Avoid Contact with eyes, mouth, and nose with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick and/or running a fever.
  • Cough and/or sneeze into your elbow or tissue to decrease the spread of germs.

As always, the district will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep all stakeholders informed of any updated information.

Sincerely,
