More Exciting News!!!
On Tuesday, October 15th, the board approved the purchase of property for the new HFES building at 6151 Powers Ferry Road. The School Board also approved purchase of the adjacent property at 6201 Powers Ferry Road for the new Administrative Center for the school system.
This year Fulton County has put a number of security procedures in place. The first is an online training and certification form indicating that you fully understand your responsibilities as a mandated reporter per new state law. We are happy to provide computer access in our Media Center for anyone who does not have Internet access at home. There you can watch the video and complete the forms for volunteering.
After viewing the video, there are two forms that must be submitted before parents are allowed to visit their child's class in any capacity. This includes, but not limited to, as a room parent, parent volunteer, parent reader, or to visit during a class celebration. While we always want to encourage parent involvement, we have to make sure we know who is in our building at all times. Again, safety is always our number one priority.
Please complete these forms and submit prior to visiting the school to volunteer. You may send them to your child's homeroom teacher. Once we receive these two forms from you we will create a spreadsheet that is housed at the front desk. This will make the process of checking in with your photo ID much quicker and easier.
Thank you for your assistance as we work together to make our school a safe environment for all students.
