GaDOE - School Climate Star Rating Surveys Parent Survey
In an effort to create and maintain exceptional schools, the Georgia Department of Education has created a Georgia Parent Survey that is available for all parents and guardians of HNGA students. Survey responses will be anonymous and submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education.
The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.
Your feedback on the survey is greatly appreciated and will be used to ensure HNGA continues to be a high-performing school.
Credits and Promotion
Students who are in danger of dropping credits in their core content courses will soon be required to attend our mandatory lunch study hall. We use study hall as a way of holding students accountable for their work, as we attempt to instill in our students that their high school graduation is only earned by doing the hard work.
If you have any questions regarding grades, missing assignments, or make up work, please reach out to your child's teachers for more information.
The Raider Salute Award
Laurel was nominated by her science teacher, Mr. Ben Bolton, for her dedication to her work in Honors Physical Science, her contributions to HNGA through Key Club, and her work with her peers.
Laurel was recently recognized at Rotary for her impressive accomplishments. Way to go, Laurel!
While it is important to monitor your student's health each day, we ask that if your student has a fever lower than 100.4* and is healthy enough to attend school, that they are at school every day. We work hard each day to create a school culture where students are beating down the doors to get in each day!
Jump Rope for Heart
Every Friday during the month of February will be a hat day where students can pay $1 to wear their favorite hat in support of the American Heart Association.
Hat Day Stickers will be sold in the cafeteria and in the auditorium before school by members of Student Council.
After School Math Tutoring
There is free transportation for all students. Please reach out to your student's math teacher with any questions.
Also as a reminder, sweatshirt hoods are not allowed to be worn in the building as this is a safety issue.
For more information, please reference page 17 of your student's handbook.
Students who continually break the dress code may receive school consequences.
Cell Phone Policy
Parents who need to communicate with their student throughout the day are encouraged to call the front office, where there is also a phone for students to use as needed.
Students may use headphones/earbuds for instructional purposes only, and should not be worn in the hallways, cafeteria, etc.
The consequences for violations of our cell phone policy are as follows:
1st Offense: The student picks up the phone from the front office at the end of the day.
2nd Offense: A guardian picks up the phone from the front office at the end of the day.
3rd Offense: A guardian picks up the phone from the front office at the end of the day plus a day of In School Suspension (ISS).
