Meningococcal Booster Dose Requirement Update

Dear Parent or Guardian:
The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) continues to work diligently with health care providers, local public health departments and many other health partners in response to the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  For this reason, DPH has decided to revise its rules and postpone implementation of the high school meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) booster dose requirement from July 1, 2020, to July 1, 2021.

Effective July 1, 2021, children 16 years of age and older, who are entering the 11th grade (including new entrants), must have received one booster dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4), unless their initial dose was administered on or after their 16th birthday. Meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial illness that affects the brain and the spinal cord. Meningitis can cause shock, coma and death within hours of the first symptoms. If your teen has not been vaccinated against meningococcal disease, we strongly recommend getting your 11th grader, aged 16 years or older, vaccinated before starting the 2021-2022 school year. Getting MCV4 (meningococcal conjugate vaccine) now will not only help protect your child against the ongoing threat of meningitis, it will also meet the new school entry requirement.

Ask your pediatrician or local health department about other shots your child may need including:
• the human papillomavirus (HPV) series
• the tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis shot (Tdap or Td booster)
• an annual flu vaccine; and
• catch-up immunizations, including chickenpox, MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and hepatitis B.
If your child does not have health insurance or their health plan won’t cover these vaccines, call your local health department and ask about getting no cost or low cost vaccines. For more information, visit http://dph.georgia.gov/vaccines-children or call (800) 848-3868.


Sincerely,

Kathleen E. Toomey, M.D., M.P.H.
Commissioner & State Health Officer

Message from the Superintendent -School Closure EXTENDED

4/6/2020: Letter from Dr. Gina Williams

Dear Tattnall County School System Students, Parents, and Guardians -  COVID Letter.pdf 

Estimados estudiantes, padres y tutores del Sistema del Escolar del Condado de Tattnall -  COVID Spanish Letter.pdf 

Post 3/27/2020:

Following the Executive Order from Governor Kemp, Tattnall County schools are extending the closure of public elementary and secondary schools through the end of this school year.  Stay well and continue to follow the President's guidance for maintaining good health.

Our feeding program begins Monday, March 23rd. Please see the announcement on the district website for places and times (www.tattnallschools.org).  At this point, we will continue to implement our feeding plan on Mondays and Wednesdays each week through April 8th. We will suspend the feeding program during the week of spring break - April 13th - 17th.  Please remember that the child has to be present to receive a meal.

At this point, our school calendar will remain the same. Our spring break, which is scheduled for April 13-17, will remain the same as planned.

At this point, we have not developed any plan for make-up days.

State testing has been canceled.

Online resources are available on our district website (http://bit.ly/2xFjS5Y). We are providing these resources to help students remain engaged in the learning process; however, we are not concerned about assessing for grades. We encourage parents to use this time to love on and connect with their children. Here are a few ideas:

*Talk to your children about your family history/ancestry;

*Read to your child or have him/her read to you;

*Teach him/her how to balance a checkbook;

*Take a nature walk and enjoy the beauty of the world;

*Teach your child a life skill - how to change a tire, how to cook a meal;

*Have your child practice basic math facts, such as multiplication.

Please don't think that you have to recreate school at home. Once we are back to normal, we will pick up where we left off. We will make it through this together. #whateverittakes

Take care of yourself and your families!

Please continue to check our school websites and social media accounts for updates. We will also continue to utilize our normal communication tools.

PBIS at Home

Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) is one strategy some schools use to teach appropriate social behavior and skills.  The Home PBIS Matrix, similar to the school matrix,  was developed to guide children's behavior expectations at home. The activity booklet can help connect home to PBIS that students are already familiar from the school expectations.

Coronavirus - Tattnall County Schools Announcements

Post 3/13/2020:  After listening to Governor Kemp’s press conference yesterday and meeting with Tattnall County emergency and health officials, a decision has been made to close all Tattnall County Schools. We will continue to evaluate the situation to determine when we are safe to return to school, and we will communicate that decision via our normal communication avenues. This action is being taken in an effort to slow the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus.  We recognize the hardship this decision places on many families, but protecting our students and staff, as well as the community’s health and well-being, are of the upmost importance to us.
School and district activities are canceled or postponed after Friday, March 13, 2020. This includes outside groups who may have been scheduled to meet at our schools.
Also, we ask you to continue following the COVID-19/coronavirus guidelines as shared by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that are posted on their website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/index.html. These include monitoring your family’s health for flu-like symptoms and reaching out to your local health provider if these symptoms occur.
Please know that this is a unique situation for Tattnall County Schools, our state and our nation. We do not yet have all the answers, but are committed to communicating with you as frequently and openly as possible via our normal methods of communication.
Your support and confidence during this unprecedented time is greatly appreciated.
