Honorary Golden Radish Winners Emanuel County School System Receives Golden Radish Award for Farm to School Accomplishments

Georgia’s Departments of Agriculture, Education and Public Health, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension and Georgia Organics came together at the historic Georgia Railroad Freight Depot to celebrate over 40 percent of Georgia school districts with outstanding farm to school programs. Seventy-five school districts, serving more than one million students in Georgia, are now participating in farm to school.  These districts served more than 97 million school meals with local food items during the 2016-17 school year.

 

Emanuel County School System was recognized at the Honorary level for their accomplishments during the 2016-17 school year, including:

·         Hosting two "Farm Days", where the School Nutrition Department presented “Where in Georgia Are Our School Foods Grown" to primary and elementary students. Students took home seeds to take home to start gardens with. Students also talked to farmers, visited barns where they could pet goats, horses, cows and rabbits, sat on tractors and listened to high school FFA students explain how they work. Altamaha EMC joined by teaching students how they run power to all of the farms in the county.

SHS Fake News

This afternoon the Emanuel County Board of Education learned that a fake news site - breakingnews247.com - has posted a story that is circulating through social media stating a potential spreading of HIV by an 11th grade student at one of our schools. This website is a known prank website and should not be taken as real. “It is disappointing that someone would create a fake news story such as the one traveling around on social media,” stated school superintendent Dr. Kevin A. Judy. “Although probably intended to be funny, it unfortunately took away from our focus on students to address this issue that many believe to be true. I have contacted the provider and they readily agreed to remove the page due to the negative impact to the school and community. We appreciate their quick response to our concern.” The superintendent has been in touch with the Emanuel County Health Department to confirm that there is not a health risk to our students. Although this story is fake, the Emanuel County Nurse Manager, Jennifer Harrison, stated that anyone in the community that ever feels that they need to be tested can go the Emanuel County Health Department without an appointment time. The Emanuel County Schools take the safety and well-being of all of our students as a top priority of the school district.
