Jan. 30– Taking care of a parent is not something one learns in school yet the children of yesterday are now the caretakers of today.
Day care for children is a normal daily routine for most parents, but for the person caring for a senior or that senior living alone and isolated, such care can be hard to find.
Harbert Hills Academy Adult Day Care Facility, 3575 Lonesome Pine Road, Savannah, will have a grand opening for just such a facility Tuesday, Feb. 4, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. The new stand-alone adult day care center will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekend care will be available by appointment.
Director of Nursing Kathy Moon said, “We are so blessed to serve our precious folks with caring hands and loving hearts.”
Jan. 29– According to Hardin County Schools Deputy Director Michael Davis and Director of Federal Programs Terry McFalls, as of today Hardin County Schools have used nine of the district’s 13 “stockpile days” due to weather events.
Stockpile days are days built into the school year calendar which can be used as “off days” for students and not have them count against the state-required 180 days of school instruction.
Stockpile days can be used for certain weather events, natural disasters, or professional development for teachers.
Two stockpile days have also already been built into this school year calendar for professional development for teachers, which leaves the district with two stockpile days left.
