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. Of course the student's records will be sent once a Request for Records is requested by the new school through ScribOrder:

Please contact Unnur Kornmayer with any questions, 470-254-8244 or

Mask Mandate Update

Superintendent Mike Looney shared that Fulton County Schools will be taking a measured, cautious approach to relaxing COVID-19 protocols, which includes updating COVID-19 restrictions and mask mandates in phases. There are several factors spurring these changes, including Governor Brian Kemp’s lifting of restrictions on group sizes and ending a ban on large gatherings. Also, vaccines are now readily available to those 16 years of age and older. In this new phase, employees and students who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but have been fully vaccinated will not have to quarantine providing they are symptom free.

Beginning Monday, May 3, 2021:

  • For outdoor activities only, masks will be recommended but not required for students in grades 9-12 and employees in high schools. All other safety protocols will remain in effect for this group of individuals.
  • At school sponsored outdoor events and activities, masks will be recommended but not required for visitors/spectators.
  • Capacity limitations are lifted on all outside school venues (stadiums, fields, etc.).
  • Coaches may attend banquets.

Beginning Monday, May 17, 2021:

  • While engaged in outdoor activities, masks will be recommended but not required for students in grades PK-8 and employees. All other safety protocols will remain in effect for this group of individuals.
  • School Leaders, in consultation with their respective community support organizations, may schedule and host outdoor end of year celebrations to honor the achievements of students without restrictions on group sizes.

All other existing COVID-19 risk mitigation strategies will remain in force for the balance of the 2020-21 school year. This includes requiring all staff, students, and visitors to wear a mask while inside an FCS facility, and adhere to recommended social distancing, surface sanitizing, and handwashing. More information on the new mask mandate can be found here.

Please remember that everyone entering the building MUST wear a mask. This includes students, staff, parents, vendors etc.

Students please keep a spare mask in your backpacks to use if yours gets soiled or breaks.

Thanks for keeping us all safe!
