Parents,


The Georgia Milestones are approaching, and we want to go over a few reminders with you in order to create a successful testing environment for our students.


  1. Please make sure that your child brings their fully-charged school-issued laptop and charger every day of testing. If they do not have their laptop, they will have to make-up test, as we do not have any extra devices to use.
  2. Make sure your child gets a good night sleep and eats breakfast.
  3. Ensure that your child arrives to school on time. We will begin testing promptly at 9:00 am.
  4. All smartwatches and cell phones are not allowed in the testing environment. These need to be kept in lockers during testing.


If you have any questions, please reach out to Ashley Perry at perryam@fultonschools.org.

Thank you!

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Prevent Child Abuse America recognizes the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect. The theme this year is "Doing Things Differently: Moving From the Challenge to the Change." Child abuse can have long‐term psychological, emotional, and physical effects that have lasting consequences for victims of abuse. We must work together as a community to increase awareness about child abuse and to promote the social and emotional well‐being of children and families in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment. Together we can strengthen families and prevent child abuse.

MOVING OVER THE SUMMER?

Summer is often a time when families move and transfer their children to another school. If this is something that your family is planning, please let the Counseling Office know, as it is helpful to know which students are not returning and where they are going. A Fulton County Withdrawal Form is required to be filled out, whenever a student moves to a new school. The student’s records will be sent once a Request for Records is requested by the new school throught ScribOrder: https://fultonga.scriborder.com/


Please contact Barbara Pieper with any questions, 470-254-8244 or pieperb@fultonschools.org.

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.

After reporting a positive COVID case through the parent portal, please email Dr. Gamel at gamel@fultonschools.org
