Remote Learning Days for Staff Vaccine Clinics

As part of our efforts to provide a safe school environment for our students and community at large, Fulton County Schools has been advocating for our personnel to be included in the eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine. Fortunately, Fulton County Schools (FCS) has continued to partner with the Fulton County Board of Health (FCBOH) to support COVID-19 vaccination of district personnel, including two “Super Saturday” clinics held in January at Mercedes Benz Stadium, for those meeting the criteria in Phase 1A+.

As of March 8, all K-12 employees will now be eligible and cleared to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. FCS is again partnering with FCBOH to offer vaccinations to all employees who choose to have the vaccine. “Project Vaccinate 2021” will happen over the course of two weeks. The first dose will be offered to employees March 22-27. The second dose will be offered April 12-17.

During the span of these two weeks, school-based personnel will rotate through the vaccination days by level/zone. For the district to efficiently cycle all employees through the vaccination process, schools (per level) will adhere to the following remote learning/work schedule with school administration for teaching staff.

Given the complexities of coordinating an event of this scale and the time it will take to administer vaccines to so many employees, we anticipate our instructional delivery model will be impacted. All schools in the district will then switch to remote learning for part of these vaccine weeks. FCS will remain in remote the week after spring break to allow the vaccines to be given and to guard against a post spring break surge. The full schedule can be found below.

We understand switching to remote learning for certain days requires planning, and we are providing these dates as early as possible so families can plan accordingly. Principals will follow up directly with more guidance for each school’s plans and how these will impact your student’s instruction.

Spring Testing Survey

https://fultonschools.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6lBLLIAWcYZYBJs


Greetings Campbell Cougars,


This year, Fulton County Schools (FCS) will continue to offer a variety of state and national assessments to help us better understand how our students are performing. The State of Georgia is moving forward with administering the Georgia Milestones to all students in grades 3-5.

Testing Dates:

April 27 – April 29 (ELA: Parts 1, 2, & 3)

May 4 – May 5 (Math: Parts 1 & 2)

May 6 (5th Grade Only – Science)

Please complete this survey below to help us prepare for spring testing. We would like to know if your child will participate in the Georgia Milestones. We are also collecting information on student devices. We are asking that you complete this survey by Friday, March 19, 2021.

Survey Hyperlink: Click Here if you DO NOT want your child to participate in Georgia Milestones
To fill out the survey, you must have your child’s Student I.D. Our goal is for ALL FCS students to respond to the survey, including those learning face-to-face and those learning remotely. Be mindful that your selection is final.

Points of clarity to consider:

· All tests will be taken face-to-face

· If your child is now remote, you must provide transportation and students must be picked up immediately after testing each day

· If your child is remote and you decide you do not want your child to test, your child will still have to participate in asynchronous learning (online learning without the teacher).

· If your child is a face-to-face student and you decide you do not want your child to test, your child will still have to come to school and participate in asynchronous learning (online learning without the teacher).

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. McDonald, the Assistant Principal.

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.

WHY IS MY CHILD BEING COUNTED ABSENT?? WHY IS MY CHILD'S GRADE LOW?
