September 17th Edition

Hi Taylor Families!

We had a great week of learning at Taylor!


We have three new Early Intervention Program part time teachers:


  • Tracy Brooks
  • Tricia Lewis
  • Julie Sullins


These teachers have several years of teaching experience and will be an asset to our school.


We also have a new Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Mary Wingate and a new special education paraprofessional, Asia Stubbs. We are excited to welcome all of our new staff members.

I am excited about all of our new hires.


I would like to take a minute to address some of our most frequently asked questions:

Question: Do I need to bring a note to school after being absent?

Answer: Yes, you must bring in a note to school within three days of your absence. The note should tell when you were absent, the reason why you were absent, and be signed by your parent/guardian. You can also bring in a note from your doctor's office.

Question: When am I considered tardy?

Answer: You are tardy if you are not in your classroom by the 8:45 a.m. bell.

Question: What is considered unacceptable dress code for school?

Answer: Halter tops, tank tops, tops that show midriff, short shorts, roller shoes, torn jeans, and flip-flops.


If you ever have questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at 770.338.4680.

Have a great weekend!
