Haygood Drive Reminders

Please do not stop to let your student out on Haygood Drive. Haygood Drive is a popular means to get to Emory and the Clifton Corridor, and stopping your car increases gridlock and endangers your child. Please either use the gym parking lot or Westminster Drive as a drop-off for your child. Thanks!

Friday's Football Scrimmage @ Decatur @ 7:30p

Due to the ongoing construction at our school and nearby areas, I would strongly recommend parking in the parking deck located north of the campus next to the Decatur Courthouse. There will be a $6-$7 dollar charge but it is the most convenient place. If you park there you should head South on Commerce for one block to enter the visitors gate. You may also head South on McDonough to enter the campus. Please do not to park in the CVS parking lot or the Chipotle parking lot as they will get "booted". Game admission will be $5.00 for everyone.

PTSA Parent-to-Parent College Meeting - Monday

Please join us for the 6th annual PTSA Parent-to-Parent/Student-to Student College Application Meeting this Monday, August 14 at 6:30 in the Media Center. We will quickly review the checklist for senior planning including understanding early admission versus early decision, staying current with Georgia College 411 and college fairs, essay and letter of recommendation writing, and testing preparation. For added inspiration, we have a panel of 2017 DHHS graduates and their parents who will share their tips before dashing off to college!
