Red Ribbon Week.

This week we are celebrating Red Ribbon Week. The Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people during the month of October. It is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Please take this opportunity to open or continue dialogue with your children about drugs.

Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are less likely to use drugs, than those who don’t, yet only a quarter of teens report having these conversations. SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) reports: There is an urgent need to identify children and adolescents who have or are at risk for mental disorders, including Substance Use Disorders, and connect these children and adolescents with other services they need. Schools can fill a critical role in both identifying such children and adolescents and connecting them with treatment and other services they need. Fulton County Schools is committed to providing safe and secure learning environments for our students.

Our Board of Education makes annual, ongoing investments, that provide safety and security to our physical buildings, as well as programs that focus on the social and emotional well-being of our students and staff.

  • Monday: Make Healthy Choice: Music and Healthy Choices promotions made by students
  • Tuesday: Turn Your Back on Drugs – Wear your shirt backwards
  • Wednesday: RED Day – Wear RED to show support of being drug free/pass out red ribbon bracelets to students
  • Thursday: Team Up Against Drugs Day – Wear your favorite team gear
  • Friday: Keep Your Head on Straight – Hat Day


Capital Plan 2027

Over the next few weeks you will be hearing and seeing more information about Fulton County Schools’ next Capital Plan and the projects that will improve our school, Johns Creek Cluster Projects. On November 2, 2021, Fulton citizens will vote on whether to continue ESPLOST as the funding source for these projects. For those unfamiliar, ESPLOST is the one-penny education sales tax that has funded new school construction, additions and renovations, technology innovations, transportation upgrades and safety improvements in our school system.

ESPLOST has been our district’s preferred funding source for capital improvement projects for many years. Fulton County Schools has created a special webpage with information about Capital Plan 2027 and ESPLOST at We encourage you to visit that page to view information about our school’s projects as well as general information about districtwide improvements.
