Early Release Wednesday, February 17th and Thursday, February 18th at 12:45 pm

Early Release/Parent Conferences are fast approaching. Corley students will be dismissed at 12:45pm on Wednesday 2/17 and Thursday, 2/18. Please plan accordingly and communicate with your student's teacher if transportation for your student will be different on these days.

Reminder about Student Checkout Procedures

A parent or authorized contact must contact the Front Office at 678-924-5330 office 30-45 minutes prior to arriving at the school. Office staff will verify authorization to prevent delays upon arrival. Student will be called from class once the parent/contact has arrived, and ID has been verified.

Calling ahead reduces wait time and allow us to complete the checkout process in a timely manner.

Teachers are not allowed to accept Class Dojo messages for checkout purposes. For security reasons, all dismissals must go through the Front Office.

African American History Month

African American History Month will be an exciting month of learning at Corley Elementary School. Faculty staff and students have already started decorating the doors with information about influential African Americans with an emphasis on their accomplishments and character traits. Pictorial highlights of great moments in African-American history have been posted throughout the building. Each morning we will feature a significant historical event that has changed our country on the morning news show. We will also feature a video of Martin Luther King III reading his book titled, "My Daddy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." Our goal is to use our displays and activities to educate and inspire the students and staff at Corley.

RBES Parent Survey

Due to the pandemic, GCPS is administering a contactless version of the RBES Parent Survey this year. There will be no paper or school computer option. Instead, SchoolMessenger will deliver an email invitation to families to complete a survey for each school at which they have one or more enrolled students.

The confidential survey will be available in English, Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese and will be accessed using the link and unique code provided in the SchoolMessenger email.

The RBES Parent Survey will be available from February 8 through February 26. Your participation helps us to continuously improve our school.

Please watch for an email with your link and access code. Thank you in advance for making your voice heard!
