Dismissal Reminders:

Dear Parents,

Dismissal Reminders:

The bus is the best way for students to travel to and from school.

  • If you must pick your child up, please be patient in the long line or arrive at 4:25PM to have a shorter line.
  • Another option is to park in the parking lot closest to the entrance of The Falls of Autry Mill. We will have a staff member crossing students to that parking lot.
  • Please do not use the parking lot where buses load. You will not be able to leave until after 4:30PM when all buses have left.
  • Students are not allowed to walk to the parking lot near the car pool area. Parents must use the crosswalk and walk across to our loading curb and return with any students. This is the least favorite option. Remember: The bus is BEST!
  • We will have plenty of staff on hand to help. Thanks in advance for your patience during the first two weeks of school.

Student Checkout Procedures

To ensure a more efficient way to check your child out of school during the day, please adhere to the following:

In an effort to avoid interrupting instructional time with the intercom, students need to bring a note designating the time that they should meet you in the front office. Notes should be brought to the front office in the morning for authorization. The signed note will allow your child to leave class at the designated time and meet you in the front office. If students do not have a note we will not call them to the office until parents are at the school to sign them out (for example, we cannot call them out of class when you call from your car). For this reason, you may experience delays if your child does not have a note giving prior notification of early dismissal.

Your cooperation with our check in/out procedure will help keep classroom interruptions to a minimum and will get you on your way in a timely manner.

School Safety

For the safety of our students, faculty, and staff the front office is asking that you be prepared at all times to show ID when signing out your student, coming in for a meeting or dropping off items in the office. All visitors must be checked in and given a badge to be in the building. We ask that visitors go directly to and from their designated location regarding the purpose of their visit to AMMS.

Thank you!

It's the beginning of the school year and there is a lot to be done to get your student settled. Ensuring your student is taken care of in the clinic, in terms of food allergies, asthma, diabetes and other health conditions is very important to Autrey Mill. If you need help in getting paperwork done or have questions about medications for your student, please feel free to contact the clinic from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. Thanks and I look forward to a healthy and safe year! If you have questions or concerns, please call the clinic directly at 470-254-8258.

Masks, Masks, Masks....

Students and Staff must wear a mask at all times, while in the building.

NOTE: Please don't forget to send your student with extra masks.

Forgotten Items

It is students' responsibility to check the front office for all forgotten items (homework, lunch, lunch money, books, etc.) The office cannot interrupt classes to notify a student that an item is here. Parents may drop the item in the front office, place the student's name on the white board in front of the cafeteria, and the students will either check the office between classes or see their names on the white board at lunch. All forgotten iPads are kept behind the front desk until the student picks them up. Please be sure to label all forgotten items with students first name, last name and grade!

Please remind your children of this procedure! Thank you!

FCS COVID 19 Reporting Procedures

FCS COVID 19 Reporting

Due to the ever-changing nature of this pandemic, the district will continue to monitor COVID data and recommendations, consult with public health officials, and make additional adjustments as necessary. If your child is sick, please keep them home. Families are still required to report a confirmed positive case of COVID-19, a pending COVID-19 test result (regardless of the reason for testing), and a direct contact with a person who is COVID-19 positive. FCS student/parents must use the Parent Reporting Portal to make the COVID-19 report.
