GA MILESTONES INFORMATION
Georgia Milestones testing began on Monday, April 25th. The test measures knowledge and skills in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies and provides critical information about achievement and readiness for next level of learning. Participation is crucial. The district expects all students in grades 3-8 and those in a high school end-of-year (EOC) course to participate. Thank you for partnering with the district to ensure a high rate of student participation.

Media Center Information Regarding Device Updates for Milestones
As we prepare for Milestones testing, it is more important than ever for students to make sure their devices are up to date. This will also help student devices run efficiently for class use. We are asking students to check for updates every Monday when they get home from school.
Steps to update student devices:
- At the bottom of your screen search “Check for Updates”.
- Click the gray button that says “Check for Updates".
- Please note: devices must be on, open, and charged to run updates. If the device gets closed or goes to sleep, the updates will stop running. If the battery life gets low, the updates will struggle to run.
- When the updates finish, restart your device.
Are you 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. The student’s records will be sent once a Request for Records is requested by the new school through ScribOrder: https://fultonga.scriborder.com/
Please contact Barbara Pieper with any questions, 470-254-8244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

School Nutrition to begin accepting Meal Eligibility Applications to support P-EBT Benefits
To support P-EBT eligibility benefits for students, the School Nutrition Program will process Free & Reduced Price Meal applications. By completing an application it may help you to qualify for P-EBT Benefits for next year, however it is unknown at this time if P-EBT benefits will be extended for another year. Thanks to USDA waivers, students will continue to receive school meals at no charge this school year. The Free & Reduced Price Meal application is online for parents/guardians that wish to apply for meal benefits.
Visit www.fulton.schoollunchapp.com to begin the online application.
