Message to Parents
A lot of students have returned to school at this midway point without school supplies. Please check with your child to see if they need more notebook paper or pencils. Teachers have a limited supply to share with students.
In your child's report card folder there will be a letter regarding Hall County School System's Internet safety classes the students will be participating in. Please fill out the portion at the bottom of the letter and return to your child's teacher a.s.a.p. if you would like your child to opt-out.
