Week at a Glance


EdCamp Survey

Thank you so much for your support of EdCamp Druid Hills. I hope found it to be a valuable experience. Special thank you to our Campus Supervisors, Custodial Team, Administrative Assistants, and those of you who played a part in making this logistically happen.

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey below so that the cluster principals can reflect on the shared experience and make tweaks as needed for future opportunities.

From Ms. Austin



Yes, I know that I just had this conversation with you all a few week ago...but it is true. But, remain calm I will be back on vacation for a couple of days this week Wednesday through Friday. I shall return with no anticipated future time off. As usual, I will do my best to handle whatever business I can on this Tuesday.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Deposits: Please try your best to do make deposits with me either today or tomorrow. Inform your students that deposits will be temporarily suspended until I get back. A gentle reminder: Technically speaking, Mrs. Cunningham, Mrs. Huffman, and Dr. Jackson should not be securing/holding funds for me to deposit. This could put them in a compromising situation.
  • Check reimbursements: You can still leave any check request in my box
  • Ordering: Suspended until 10/19/15
  • Payroll: Hold your questions, thoughts, and concerns until I return or call the Payroll Line: ext 60025
  • HR: please leave all statement(s) of leave in my box

I want to say thank you for doing a good job with taking care of business with me before I left. Also, I do appreciate the patience that you all have extended me while I was out. I can only hope that you will do the same this week until I return.

Any other concerns please email me or wait until I get back...preferably when I get back.
