APRES Dolphins S.W.I.M. Nov '22

An Extraordinary Place to Learn

A Message from Principal Wilson

Greetings Dolphins,

Thank you to our Dolphin families who came out to volunteer for our annual Fall-o-Ween Trunk-or-Treat event. The trunk decorations were amazing. Our students really enjoyed dressing as their favorite book characters and everyone was ALL-IN! We look forward to more celebratory events in the future. The partnership between parents and the school creates a more successful experience for our scholars. You all are greatly appreciated.

It is imperative that our car riders arrive to school on time. Please be reminded if your scholar is a car rider, that the building opens at 7:10 am (no student will be allowed entry into the building before 7:10) and students are tardy after 7:40 am. Parents are required to escort late students into the building to sign them in. Students with excessive tardiness (more than 10) are subject to a residence verification check. Any student found living outside of the zone lines for Randolph ES will be withdrawn if proof of residence is not provided. Our scholars academic success depends heavily on them arriving to school on time.

Afternoon carpool ends promptly at 2:45 pm. Any student being picked up after 2:45 pm in excess of 5 times will be required to enroll in an after care program. Information about our afterschool care programs can be found in the front office. Thank you for picking your scholars up on time.

First semester is coming to a close with only 5 weeks remaining. November and December will be short months for our scholars. The Thanksgiving Holiday break is the week of November 21-25, 2022. School resumes on Monday November 28th. There are several school events that should be on your calendar.

As you can see we are in for a lot of excitement as we close out 2022. We cannot do this successfully without you. It is imperative that our Dolphins are present each day and on time. We are asking that parents please encourage your scholars to do homework, study and prepare for assessments, and positively engage in the classroom. Our teachers work tirelessly to provide instructional activities to lead to standard mastery and success for our students.

Thank you to those of you who came out to our Annual Title I Family Literacy Night. Our teachers worked very hard to plan for this event. Your support means the world to us. In addition to supporting our family engagement activities, we need your support in other ways as well. We are seeking volunteers to support with morning and afternoon carpool, as well as lunch duty. Our assistant principal, Ms. Mack is seeking male family members to join "Dads on Duty" for spring semester. In order to volunteer, you must be cleared by Fulton County Schools. Once you have received clearance you will be added to our data base as a volunteer. For those of you who are unable to volunteer your time, we are most appreciative of your in kind donations.

Thank you again for ensuring we end this semester in the most EXTRAORDINARY way possible.

In Partnership,

Principal Wilson, Proud Dolphin

Attendance Matters: Arrive On Time

We have noticed an increase in the number of Dolphins who are arriving to school late. Please be reminded that our start time is 7:40 AM daily. Students arriving after 7:40 AM are considered late to school.

Excessive tardiness results in a loss of instructional time for not only your scholar, but for the scholars and teacher who are being interrupted by late arrivals. Please make it a priority to bring your Dolphins to school on time. Dolphins who arrive late in excess of 10 times are subject to the residence verification process.

We are thankful for those of you who choose to walk your scholars to class each day. Please be reminded that pajamas, and head scarfs or bonnets are not appropriate dress when entering the building. Our school is a professional environment and must be treated as such. Your compliance with this request is appreciated.

Thanksgiving Lunch with Your Scholar

The deadline to RSVP for the Thanksgiving Luncheon is fast approaching. If you plan to join your scholar for lunch on the designated days please be sure to RSVP by the deadline, Thursday, November 10th. We must have an accurate count for lunch and will not be able to accept additional requests after the 10th of November.

Who Do I Contact at A. Philip Randolph

The relationship between the school community and families is critical. It is important that our staff is able to meet the needs of our stakeholders in the most effective way possible. In order to best serve you, please use the "Who Do I Contact" list as a guide for which team member can best support you.

Infinite Campus Parent Portal

The Infinite Campus portals - Campus Parent and Campus Student - provides access to information for all enrolled students in their household. Information includes grades, attendance, assignments, and school announcements.

Student Progress Reports and assessment data are made available in Infinite Campus. You must have a parent account to access your scholar's progress report. The school does not provide progress reports for students.

Note: Parents must register the first time they are accessing their account. All students have access to Campus Student via ClassLink.

Fulton Dress Code-I.13a Improper Dress

Students in the school system are expected to dress and groom themselves in such a way as to reflect neatness, cleanliness and safety. All students shall dress appropriately so as not to disrupt or interfere with the educational program or the orderly operation of the school. Examples of inappropriate dress and grooming include lack of cleanliness in person or dress; shoelessness; "short-short" clothing; bare midriffs; "tank tops"; "see-through" clothing or apparel which designates gangs or similar organizations or any dress that is disruptive to the educational process. Designated dress involving school activities approved by the principal shall be acceptable. The principal or other duly authorized school official shall determine whether any particular mode of dress or grooming results in a violation of the spirit and/or the intent of this rule.

Here Comes the Bus

Thank you to those of you who have made sure you are at the bus stop to receive your scholar or for making arrangements for someone to be there. The number of scholars being brought back to the school has decreased. If your scholar is brought back to the school more than 3 times, you will be requested to enroll him/her in an afterschool program. Scholars being brought back to the school creates a hardship for our bus drivers and our administrative staff as they are not able to attend after school meetings or complete work tasks while supervising the students who have been returned.

Please download the Here Comes the Bus App to assist you with knowing when to report to the bus stop to meet your child(ren).

If you do not know your scholar's bus stop times or location, log into our transportation portal for this information.

To do this, visit http://edulogweb.fultonschools.org/livewq/webquery/ and type in your street name and number (It works best if you leave off the Rd, St suffix, i.e. Cascade instead of Cascade Rd.)

Due to a bus driver shortage, transportation challenges are expected to affect bus routes and on-time arrivals at schools this year. Parents and students are encouraged to sign up for our free “Here Comes the Bus” app that allows students and parents to track their bus in real time. Alerts notify parents when the bus is just a few blocks away from the bus stop, offering safety for students and peace of mind for parents.

Arrival and Dismissal

  • Morning car rider drop-off will take place in the front of the school. Randolph staff will be present at the carpool loop to receive students from 7:10am until 7:40am daily. Parents must park vehicles and escort students into the building and sign-in after 7:40am.
  • Bus rider parents, school busses depart our campus at 2:25pm daily. The FCS Code of Conduct applies to all students transported by school bus.
  • Afternoon car riders will be picked up in the front of the school. Cars will enter through the main entrance to the school from Campbellton Rd. Please have your car rider number ready in the window.
  • Afternoon car rider parents, please make sure your scholar is picked up by 2:45pm.
  • If picked up from school after 2:45pm, your scholar will be seated in the front office. Please park and come in to sign your scholar out. Parents who fail to pick up their scholars before 2:45pm in excess of 3 times will be required to either use bus transportation or secure after school care. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Safety is our priority.
  • As with students arriving tardy, students who are excessively picked up late are subject to residence verification.
  • Early student pick-up ends at 2:00pm daily. Please contact the school if in need of emergency early pick-up.

Volunteering at Randolph

We are excited to welcome volunteers back into our building this year! We love having volunteers in our building on a regular basis. Volunteers must be pre-approved and scheduled to support in areas of greatest need. Parents will not be allowed to volunteer in their scholar's classroom during instructional time to avoid distraction.

Please remember that if you are going to volunteer at Randolph ES in any capacity (in the classroom, in the media center, cafeteria, or at a school event, etc.) you must watch the volunteer video and fill out the volunteer form prior to coming to the building. Once you complete the training, it takes up to 48 hours to process your approval. All approved volunteers must re-apply for volunteer status every two calendar years.

Please follow the link to Fulton County’s website, to complete the necessary volunteer online training and application. The link below will direct you to the district's volunteer process.
