IMPORTANT DISTRICT MESSAGE!

Dear Parents or Guardians,

As we approach Valentine’s Day, it is important to remind families and students that candy, desserts, baked goods (store bought/homemade), or other edible items are not to be sold or distributed during school hours. Students who do not adhere to this expectation are subject to disciplinary action for insubordination and all food items will be confiscated. Please discuss this expectation and possible consequences with your student(s).

Please know that taking this measure will help us maintain a safe environment for all students. You can help us protect your student(s) by requesting that they not eat anything given to them by another person, anything that they have not brought from your home or anything not in its original sealed package. Also, to reduce the interaction of front office staff with visitors, any valentine deliveries will not be accepted.

Thank you for your continued partnership in keeping all of our students safe at school!

Reporting Portal has translation now...

The Fulton County Board of Health and Fulton County Schools have developed an on-line portal for FCS parents/guardians to report student COVID-19 related cases. The portal has been updated for Spanish, Korean, and Chinese. FCS parent/guardians will find a dropdown at the top right for translations. www.fultonschools.org/ReportCOVID Please make a report to the FCBOH when your student is COVID-19 positive, has a pending COVID-19 test result, or has been in direct contact with a COVID-19 positive person. Also, please use this resource for official reporting rather than alerting the school and/or teacher. If you must engage the school/teacher, please do so after you have made an official report to the FCBOH. Lastly, to ensure the protection of our school community, please do not allow your child to attend school or school-sponsored events when he/she is ill and/or has any of the above COVID-19 concerns.

WHY IS MY CHILD BEING COUNTED ABSENT?? WHY IS MY CHILD'S GRADE LOW?

What Parents Need to Know about how students are graded and counted present for instruction!

Be online, Be engaged, Complete Assignments... Be Counted! Pay attention to reminders below:


  • Student attendance is monitored.
  • A student's minutes online, assignment completion and participation, are important aspects of being engaged in learning and being counted as present.
  • Please ensure that your students are in class on time and are engaging in Literacy, Math, and other content areas to be counted present for the day.
  • Students that fail to return for classes will be documented as "skipping". This will result in a referral to our student support team.
  • Parents should provide written documentation for early check-out for medical appointments in both face to face and remote settings. (documents can be emailed to the front office at hallsr@fultonschools.org )

  • You will be sent 2 Zoom links.
    • You can choose either, but if you have a tutor preference, be sure to check the daily schedule attached to the email to see who will be in each session. However, we cannot guarantee that you will be matched with the specific tutor of your choice.
