Druid Hills High School

Week at a Glance - December 14

Holiday Potluck Clean-Up Committee

We will need about 5 staff members willing and able to assist with clean-up after Wednesday's celebration. We will place a sign on the Main Office door tomorrow. Thank you in advance!

GA Milestones

The Achievement Standards (cut scores) for all GA Milestones Assessments were recently approved by the State Board of Education. These cut scores provide information on the precise number of points a student must earn to achieve specific learner (achievement) categories (e.g., Beginning Learner, Developing Learning, Proficient Learner, and Distinguished Learner).

Remember that selected response questions on the GA Milestones Assessments are worth one point, with greater weights of earned points attributed to written responses. These cut scores are applicable for both the former 2015 and the impending 2016 Georgia Milestones Assessments.

Holiday Reminders

As we approach Winter Break (yay!), here are a few security reminders:


  • Ensure all windows and doors are locked and blinds are closed (note: we did have an intruder during Thanksgiving Break enter through an open window)
  • Remove your valuables
  • Ensure checked-out laptops and computers are returned to their secured location
  • Please ensure your department chair has your cell phone number, in the event the emergency phone tree is activated (i.e. inclement weather)


The building will be open on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9am - 2pm during the Break.
