Coronavirus / COVID-19

Our number one priority at Whitehall City Schools is child safety. We know you have many questions and concerns regarding the new coronavirus or COVID-19 and we want to help provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information. 

In these types of situations, Whitehall City Schools refers directly to our local public health department which is Franklin County Public Health. Their site has the most up-to-date information as it pertains to COVID-19. As we learn more about this virus, we must all stay informed as to best practices to keep ourselves prepared and safe.

As with any respiratory or communicable diseases, these general tips are highly effective in preventing the spread:
  • Wash your hands multiple times per day. If not available, alcohol-based hand sanitizer is a viable second option.
  • Avoid contact with others and stay home while you are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect the environment around you such as basic things you touch.
