Off to a Great Start

It's official, the first two weeks of the 2019-2020 school year are under our belts. This has been a tremendous start and we are excited about the days ahead. Please continue to check the school website, teacher's websites and the school/teacher newsletters for more information about the school year, special/upcoming events and much more.

Curriculum Night

Curriculum Night is a night dedicated to sharing the objectives and strategies of the teacher/grade level for the school year. Please keep in mind, this is not a parent/teacher conference. The teacher/grade level will give a detailed but brief presentation of the materials used, future lesson plans and future events. Please choose a session time on your child’s night. Please only attend one session with your homeroom teacher. Your child’s teacher may send out a sign-up sheet to balance out each Session. Session times are listed below:


Monday, August 19, 2019

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade ONLY!

Session 1 begins at 6:15 PM

Session 2 begins at 6:45 PM


Tuesday, August 20, 2019

SWCC Town Hall Meeting

Our S.W.C.C. (School Wide Community Council), our version of PTA, will have their first town hall meeting of the year on each night of Curriculum Night. Monday August 19, 2019 and Tuesday August 20, 2019 at 5:30 PM. These meetings will last until 6:10 PM and will transition into the first session of Curriculum Night. Our S.W.C.C. will also have used uniforms for sale on both nights. Please come out and support.

MyPaymentsPlus

MyPaymentsPlus is an online payment management system. This system allows you to pay for meals, certain fees and activities for your child. This system eliminates sending your child in with cash, hoping it gets to the right place.


If you are a returning parent/guardian, you used this system to complete Re-Enrollment on last school year.

If you are a new parent/guardian, instructions on creating an account were in your "Meet Your Teacher" documents.


NOTE: When creating an account and adding a student please add them under New Life Academy of Excellence as the institution.

DO NOT ADD THEM UNDER GWINNETT COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!!!!!!


Please keep in mind you will need your child's student Id to register a new account.



It is imperative that each parent/guardian of a New Life Academy of Excellence student has a valid and working account and checks it frequently. If for any reason you have issues with your account please contact the school or MyPaymentsPlus directly (1-877-237-0946) for help.


A link for the MyPaymentsPlus site can be found on our website or by visiting them on their web at www.mypaymentsplus.com .

Early Check-Out ends at 2:00 pm daily. We do understand that an emergency may occur at which it will be at the discretion of the administrative support staff to release after the cut-off time.

Medicine

If your child has a medical condition that requires the administration of a prescriptions, please contact the school office for a Medical Administration Authorization Form. Please be reminded that we may not administer medicine without the authorization form. Medicine should be brought to school by the parent/guardian in the original container. No baggies or unlabeled medication will be accepted.

Carpool Tags

Carpool tags have officially been given to each student. Either during Meet Your Teacher Day or they were sent home by your child's teacher this week. Car Rider Tags are a very important part of our dismissal process. Parent/Guardians/Authorized Pick-Up individuals will not be able to pick up your child without your official car rider tag.


Effective Monday, August 19, 2019, you will only be able to use our official car rider tag and or a temporary tag in the carpool line. All other former tags will expire. If for any reason you are missing your car rider tag or have lost it, please call the school.


You also be able to purchase additional car rider tags through MyPayments Plus beginning on Monday, August 19, 2019. Replacement tags are $5.00 each.

Carpool Rules & Reminders

It is very important that authorized pick-ups have their car rider tag and follow the rules below to insure that everyone gets home safe and sound.
  1. No Switching Lanes: Please stay in the lane that you file into at all times. Switching lanes causes longer wait time.
  2. Don't Get Out of Your Car: For the safety of all please remain in your cars at all times.
  3. Officer on Duty:There is an officer on duty in the morning and afternoon to aid with traffic flow. We will get you in and out as safely and as soon as possible.
  4. Thanks for Your Patience: Please be patient the first month of school as students learn their car rider numbers. You may experience a longer than usual wait time.
  5. Seat Belts: Students must be secured in a seat belt upon departure.
  6. Get Home Safely!
