Autrey Mill has the best Orchestra!

Congratulations to the 7th and 8th Grade Orchestras for their performances last week at the Georgia Music Educators Association Large Group Performance Evaluation.

LGPE is much like final exams for orchestra where each group is required to play music selected from a graded list for a panel of nationally recognized judges.

The students receive written and verbal comments from the judges as well as a professional recording of the performance. We are thrilled to share that both groups received straight superior ratings with the 8th grade receiving nearly perfect scores from all 3 judges! Thanks also to our faculty and parent volunteers for their help with this important educational opportunity.

Young Georgia Author’s Writing Competition, Winners!


Recently, students at Autrey Mill Middle School submitted their best showcase pieces of writing as part of the Young Georgia Author’s Writing Competition sponsored by the Georgia Department of Education. Students could submit a writing piece limited only by their creativity. We had an amazing turnout that include some stellar selections! These students earned the Best in Writing Award for their grade levels and moved on to the next round of the YGA writing competition- competing with students throughout Fulton County Schools:

Ashley W. from 6th grade with her piece “Untitled”, Alyona C. from 7th grade with her piece “Sachs Harbour”, and Rebecca W. from 8th grade with her piece “Revelation”.

Both Ashley’s and Rebecca’s writing pieces won at the Fulton County Level, beating out all other submissions from the county in their grades! Their work will go on to the next round and state level winners will be announced in May.

Please congratulate these students for their awesome achievement!

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 .

The Deadline for Fulton County Schools Hardship Transfer Application is Feb. 28, 2023

Applications are available beginning January 1, 2023, for parents who wish to apply for a 2023-24 hardship transfer or to renew a current hardship to another Fulton County Schools (FCS) elementary, middle or high school.

Parents will use an online form, available through the school system’s website, to enter and submit their information. Hard copy applications are not required, with the exception of medical transfers which require pertinent medical provider’s signatures and documentation.

The deadline for submitting a transfer application is Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2023, by 4:30 p.m., with no exceptions or extensions granted. All requests must be received or postmarked by this date and time. In addition, school system employees who have children receiving an employee hardship transfer must renew their request.

The February 28 deadline applies to students and parents seeking a hardship transfer for medical reasons, curriculum differences, and child care situations or for employees’ children.

Schools participating in open enrollment, a separate transfer process that allows students to move to a school with available space, will be announced in early May.

Parents with questions or who need more information about hardship transfers can contact the FCS’ Student Assignment Office at 470-254-5550 or visit

Attendance Information

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.
