The FUTURES Program works daily to ensure the health and well-being of our students and staff by developing, implementing, and delivering school health services throughout the year. Occasionally, extraordinary efforts are required to meet particular challenges, such as the recent concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19).
We are currently following the lead of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH), as well as other local, state, and federal agencies to make sure we have the most up-to-date information available. This page has been established to provide these resources and communications from the districts to our community members.
The 1-800-CHILDREN Helpline continues to offer caregivers and professionals support, resources and referrals as we practice physical distancing. We are here to listen, and to help!
If you find yourself or someone you know feeling isolated, worried about your family, concerned about being alone at home with children for days or weeks, or in need of essential resources like food or funds for utilities and rent, please call 1-800-CHILDREN (244-5373).

REMINDER about Social Distancing:
We also encourage our community to follow CDC guidelines about social distancing.
The CDC and public health officials are continuing to share guidance for the general public to practice "social distancing," which they have described as "all individuals should limit community movement and adapt to disruptions in routine activities." The CDC also says, "social distancing means remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible." Please be mindful and take precautions daily. These measures and overall good hygiene practices will help mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
