GBI CYBERSAFETY FOR PARENTS
TARDIES AND ABSENCES
Parents may be required to provide documentation of the appointment for late
arrivals or early checkout. Please ask the doctor for a note before returning
to school. If a child is going to have a recurring medical appointment that
will interrupt the school day, the parent and principal must come to an agreement prior to the series of absences. Appropriate documentation demonstrating the necessity of the recurring absence must be provided by the parent.
The final decision to excuse such absences rests with the principal.
In addition to absences due to personal illness, if a student is going to be out
of school for reasons that are not medical, religious, or otherwise listed,
parents must submit in writing, prior to the absence, a request for
pre-approval to the principal. Details about what type of absences may be
pre-approved are in the full FCBOE Policy.
Within five (5) days of returning to school, the student must submit a
written and signed excuse from the parent stating the reason for the
child's absence from school. Students who have missed ten (10) days of school
or more in a school year will be required to provide additional written
verification such as doctors' statements.
As the school and as parents, we both want our children to be ready for graduation and a career. On time, daily attendance is an early marker to those successes. Thank you for your assistance in getting your child to school every day.
2014-2015 SPRING REGISTRATION
Fulton County spring registration for elementary schools is scheduled for Wednesday, April 30 from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm and Thursday, May 1 from 8:00 am until 7:00 pm. Only parents of new students need to come to the school to register on these dates and there is no appointment necessary.
You will need the documents in this list for your registration.
Original Birth Certificate
Social Security Card
Current Immunization Certificate (on GA. Form 3231)
Eye, Ear and Dental Certificate (on GA Form 3300)
Two proofs of residency (contract/lease on home; utility bill hook up or current utility bills) needed to complete the Affidavit of Residence. We are happy to notarize your Affidavit of Residence at registration day.
PLANNING TO TRAVEL?
If you are planning to travel during the school year, please review your child's attendance record first. Fulton County Schools' attendance policy can be found online and in your child's agenda. Fulton County Schools' attendance policy clearly outlines the accepted excuses for absences and what a parent may do if he/she anticipates an absence that is not listed. Please note that in order to have any planned absence excused, a letter from the parent must be submitted to the assistant principal PRIOR to the planned absence. The assistant principal may or may not approve the absence. As well, if your child has missed 10 or more total days of school this year, you may be asked to provide medical notes for additional absences to be considered excused (in accordance with Fulton County's attendance policy). Please reconsider scheduling your family travel/vacation time to coincide with school breaks and avoid missed class time whenever possible.
VOLUNTEER TRAINING REQUIREMENTS
Fulton County has changed its policy for anyone volunteering in the schools, anywhere within the school; classroom, Media Center, or on field trips. All volunteers must complete the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol for Volunteers slideshow and provide the certificate of completion to the front desk at CWES.
Also, a Volunteer Information form must be completed and submitted to the front desk before anyone can volunteer in 2012-2013.
CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION
If there is a change in the manner in which a child is to leave school, the teacher must receive a written note from the parent stating the change; otherwise, the child will be sent home in the usual manner. Do not rely on email to notify a teacher of any changes. Please do not call the school with changes unless it is an emergency. Please note that children may not ride nay bus other than their assigned bus. In the event of an emergency, please contact the Transportation Department (770-667-2970).
FROM THE CLINIC
Students are not allowed to carry medication, including cough drops. If your child needs medication to carry medication during the school day, you need to provide the medication and fill out a Medication Administration form. Prescription medications also require a doctor’s signature.
