Lost and Found Items
Our lost and found items are growing! The items will be available for students to look through before we donate the items to charity. Please make sure your child's name is in their coat, jacket, lunch box, etc.
School Meal Payments
As of May 8, 2017, students will not have the opportunity to “charge” their meals. Please ensure that your student has sufficient funds on his/her lunch account or brings in cash or check to cover the cost of his/her meal.
If your student does not have money on his/her lunch account and does not bring in payment for a meal, he/she will receive a courtesy meal consisting of a cheese sandwich and milk. Payments for meals can be made by sending cash or check to the cafeteria manager, or online at www.mypaymentsplus.com.
Please feel free to call Ms. Wallace, Abbotts Hill Cafeteria Manager, at (470)254-2865 if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you. Please see the Fulton County School Nutrition website for elementary school meal prices.
Learning Commons - Annual Book Swap!
Step 1: Search your bookshelves, closets, under your bed, in your car, on the couch, etc.
Step 2: Decide which books you no longer read but are sure someone else would enjoy!
Step 3: Check each book to make sure that it is clean, in good condition, and appropriate for someone in kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, or fifth grade. It must not be torn, scribbled upon, or appear worn out.
Step 4: Bring your Book Swap books to the Learning Commons between now and May 12th. You will receive Book Swap credits that can be used during the last week of school to select gently used books for yourself that have been donated by others.
A MAXIMUM OF FIVE Book Swap credits will be given to a student, even if he/she donates more than 5 books to the Book Swap to ensure that everyone gets to select “new” books.
If extra books are available after each student has selected theirs,
those students who donated more than 5 books will be invited back to the Swap to choose more books!
The Book Swap will take place
during the last week of school!

Year End Medication Reminder from the Clinic
All medications stored in the clinic must be picked up no later than Thursday, May 25th. No medications will be stored in the clinic over the summer. Any medications (prescription & over the counter) left at the end of the day on the 25th will be destroyed.
If your student currently has prescription medication in the Abbotts Hill clinic, paperwork will be coming home with your student the first week of May. This will give you the opportunity to complete the new paperwork for the 2017-2018 school year over the summer. New student health plans and authorization to give medication at school is to be completed for each new school year. These forms can also be found on the Fulton County website under the Student Health Services tab under Parent Resources at: http://www.fultonschools.org/en/divisions/ops/security/Pages/Student-Health-Services.aspx

Carpool Safety Reminder
The safest way for students to arrive to school is via the school bus.
If you need to bring your student via carpool, please remember to help keep our students and staff safe in the carpool line as you drop your students off in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon. When dropping off in the morning please make sure your children exit the car from the right side only. The staff's priority is to get the students out of the car and have the cars proceed forward. Do not let your student out before the sign indicating the correct place. Thank you.
