• Alert: Polk School District has been monitoring the condition of the roads all afternoon and evening. We have been in constant contact with public works, 911, and the Polk School District Transportation Department, and will continue to do so through the early morning hours. Due to the possibility of the roads in many parts of the county already unsafe or will become unsafe for school transportation, we will be delaying school tomorrow by two hours. The delay will allow our buses to pick up students during daylight hours. Good road visibility will be necessary for drivers to determine whether the use of an alternate road on their route would be a safer option for our students when they encounter an excess of water on the road. Should conditions worsen throughout the night, we will make a school closing determination by 6:00 am. This announcement will be provided through the various media outlets, including the PSD Facebook page, Website, Reminds, and One Call Now phone system.

My name is Kristina Whitfield. I am from Rockmart, but I have lived in Cedartown for 11 years now. I am married to Dustin Whitfield. We have two children, Zaleigh and Declyn. We love watching Georgia football (GO DAWGS). I graduated from the University of West Georgia in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I also obtained my ESOL endorsement at this time. I have my Master's degree from Walden University in Early Childhood Reading and Mathematics. This is my sixth year teaching ESOL and my fifth year at Westside.  I am very excited to get the school year started and see all of success each child makes.

My educational philosophy as an ESOL teacher is to focus on each student as an individual and his/her needs. I want to provide my students with a positive and safe learning environment. I believe in challenging students to help them achieve their highest potential. I think that having parental involvement is a key element to helping each child become successful. I believe that parents and teachers working together gives children the support that is needed to create success.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at kwhitfield@polk.k12.ga.us.
