PSAT Day - Students Must Have a School-Issued Device

The PSAT is completely digital this year. In order to take the test, students must have a Fulton County Schools-issued device. Students are not allowed to take the PSAT on a personal device. Please have your student check one out from the Media Center immediately if they need this device.

Cambridge will administer the PSAT 8/9 to all 9th and 10th-grade students and the PSAT/NMSQT to 11th-grade students on Thursday, October 12, 2023. 12th-grade students will not report to school on Thursday, October 12, and will participate in the asynchronous day. Seniors are encouraged to use this day for college visits, completing make-up work, or working on college applications. Please read the following information and the referenced materials for details regarding the PSAT 8/9 and PSAT/NMSQT.

For more information, please visit PSAT.

Student IDs

We are happy to report that most of our students are wearing their IDs throughout the day with no issues. We set up a system for students to get temporary IDs if they forgot their ID. However, this system is already being abused. Please note that there is a process for forgotten and lost IDs and a repercussion for students not having their ID.

  • Students should wear their IDs every day. Every period. At all times when they are in the building (including in the hallways).
  • If a student has lost ID, they should go to the Bridge East Front Office and pay $10 for a new ID and lanyard.
  • If a student forgot their ID, they can go to the Bridge East Front Office for a temporary ID (this is a one-time help, not an everyday fix).
  • Students who receive a temporary ID must bring it back the next day. If they do not bring it back, they will receive a detention and pay $10 for the temporary IDm as well as $10 for a new ID to be printed for them.
  • Students who do not request a temporary ID risk getting a detention for not having an ID while in the building.
  • IDs should be worn on a lanyard around the student's neck to be visible at all times.
  • For more information on the importance of students wearing IDs, please view the video at this link.

Signs of Suicide Prevention Program - All Students

Fulton County Schools takes our students' personal/social and physical safety seriously. In order to proactively address concerns of depression and child/adolescent suicide, the district is providing faculty suicide prevention training and a student suicide prevention lesson as part of the Signs of Suicide (SOS) Prevention Program. The SOS program has successfully increased help-seeking by students concerned about themselves or a friend. It is the only school-based suicide prevention program selected by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration for its National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices that addresses suicide risk and depression while reducing suicide attempts. The SOS program goals are as follows:

  • To explain that suicide is a preventable tragedy that often occurs as a result of untreated depression.
  • To train students to identify serious depression and the potential risk of suicide in a friend.
  • To impress upon students that they can help themselves or a friend by taking the simple step of talking to a responsible adult about their concerns.

Cambridge Counselors will deliver to:

  • 9th grade student - Signs of Suicide prevention lesson during B2 on Tuesday, October 17
  • 10th - 11th grade students - Refresher Signs of Suicide prevention lesson during B2 on Wednesday, October 25.

Parents and guardians who do not want their child to participate in the Signs of Suicide prevention lesson should complete the form at the link below by Friday, October 13. Opt-out forms should be left at the Bridge West front office. If we do not receive an opt-out form, we assume your child is permitted to participate in this program. If you have questions about the SOS prevention lesson, please get in touch with your Cambridge Counselor.

Verify Student Information

At Fulton County Schools, we prioritize student safety. Emergencies happen, and when they do, preparedness is the key to handling them well. We ask that all parents or guardians check their contact information in the Parent Portal and ensure that:

  • At least one emergency contact (not a parent/guardian) is listed for each student in the Parent Portal.
  • Ensure that we have a current phone number listed for the parents or guardians of their student(s) in the Parent Portal.

If an emergency were to happen, we need to be able to reach the parent/guardian effectively. In the event the parent/guardians are not accessible, the school must have an approved person to contact regarding your student.

Thank you for reviewing and updating your contact information and emergency contacts at your earliest convenience. For more information on how to perform these tasks:

Attendance Check-in by FCS and Important Reminders

Fulton County Schools began sending messages via text to all families last week. The first text to families offered an opportunity for families to participate in a five-question survey about their student's attendance. The results from the survey will help the district to determine any barriers to attendance families may be experiencing to target outreach to families in need.

Ongoing, the district will send text messages to parents or guardians of all students with an absenteeism rate higher than 5%. These messages are personalized to the student and are designed to increase family engagement in promoting positive attendance.

If you have questions about your student's attendance, please contact the Attendance Office at For an overview of Cambridge Attendance procedures, view Attendance Guidelines.

Be the B.R.I.D.G.E.

We are always looking for ways to build culture at CHS, and this year, we want to more frequently recognize students and staff who epitomize Be the B.R.I.D.G.E. We would like to reward these students and staff for their continuous hard work through donated gift cards. So, we are asking if your family is able and willing to pitch in a small gift card between 5-20 dollars; we could really make a few students’ and teachers’ day. Have your student bring gift cards of small denominations to the Bridge East Front Office.

Starbucks, Target, Amazon, Publix, Dunkin Donuts, and local restaurants are all surefire ways to make someone’s day but feel free to clean out that kitchen catch-all drawer.

Thank you for raising great young adults, and thank you for supporting great teachers!
