This year (2021), Georgia will recognize the week of February 1 - 5 as Severe Weather Preparedness Week. Severe weather is no stranger to the state. Last year brought a number of severe weather events, including the major Easter Tornado Outbreak. You can read about a couple of these more notable events below:

As we approach what is typically the most active part of the year for severe weather, Severe Weather Preparedness Week provides an excellent opportunity to learn more about the dangers of severe weather, as well as knowing how and when to take proper actions when severe weather is expected and hits. Please take the time now to review your home, school, or businesses preparedness plans. Each day is dedicated to a different topic that addresses severe weather preparedness. Throughout the week, the topics to be covered include:

An important aspect of severe weather warnings includes the information received from the public and spotters. Not only do timely and accurate storm reports help the National Weather Service to verify warnings, but they also help meteorologists better relate radar data with corresponding observed weather. If you observe hail (quarter sized or larger), strong/damaging winds, or a funnel cloud/tornado anywhere across north and central Georgia, please report it to the National Weather Service (Peachtree City/Atlanta Office) at 1-866-763-4466 or by using our online storm report form. To learn more about our local Skywarn spotter program, visit the Storm Spotter Information page.

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.

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 )
