Parents and Rising 9th Graders Course Recommendation Information
Parents and Rising Gladiators,
At this time, we are sending you the directions which will allow you to view the teacher recommendations for the next school year and to then add any electives you wish to take.
Please, follow the steps as outlined on the attached screenshots to navigate through the process. Students should only choose electives that they are qualified to register for even though others may appear as available.
Unfortunately, the program cannot determine if the student is qualified or not to take the course at this step. If they are not qualified, they will be removed from the course which will leave gaps in their schedule.
Attached you can also find a list of electives that they can choose from so that they can add the correct courses without any delays. Some courses are very sought after, and time is of the essence. Requests will be time stamped and those getting these in first will get the first seats in those classes. Ms. Hudson, the Master Scheduler from the high school, will be present during lunches next week to provide any assistance should students need help.
On March 1 students will have access to the final course request form where they can change the requests through the waiver process or change their electives.
If you have any questions about this process or course recommendations, please contact your student’s teachers or Ms. Turner at turnerA1@fultonschools.org .

Parent's Responsibility When a Child is Absent
- Parents should notify the school before or after the absence(s)
- Notes should be directed to attendance owner at the school
- Handwritten note or email
- Notification from parents should happen no later than 5 days after absence
Middle and High School
- Middle/High School messages begin going out around 4:30 p.m. on the day of the absence.
- If your student is absent or misses one or more periods of the school day, they will be marked with an "A" (for absent) in our attendance system, and you will receive an automated phone call and email message to the designated contact info you provided in Infinite Campus. This includes excused absences that are approved in advance.
- Errors can occur and if you feel you received a phone call by mistake, contact your school front office to verify that your student’s attendance record is accurate.
- If your student's absence was unexpected, please remember to contact your child's school by sending in a note or email so the absence can be marked "excused" in the system.
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.
