'BING in the Classroom' was here!
High Point Elementary was picked as one of only ten schools IN THE COUNTRY to be included in this program. Teachers will be receiving individualized training by technology saavy business people from Microsoft on concepts of their choosing to help with using technology in the classroom. Our first day was a great success. There will be additional training days (FREE OF CHARGE TO THE SCHOOL AND THE TEACHERS) later in the year. Visit their website below.
It is a pleasure to welcome you to High Point Elementary School, a Georgia School of Excellence. We are nestled on a wooded, 11-acre campus conveniently located in the vibrant community of Sandy Springs. We offer our families a warm and caring learning environment.
Our involved teachers and parents commit their time, talents, and leadership to both the school and the community. They respect each other and share a common goal: to give every child the opportunity to grow, learn, and have fun in the process. Together, we are educating children and preparing them for the future.
Reminders for the New School Year…..
Parents, as the school year starts we would like to remind you of procedures concerning arrivals, dismissals, the new visitor system called "Raptor", and our Volunteer procedures.
Dismissals: If you plan to check your child(ren) out of school early, please do so before 2:00 p.m. For the safety of all students, students should not be dismissed after 2:00 p.m. Please be sure to bring your ID when checking out your child.
Arrivals: Students should not arrive at school prior to 7:10 a.m. If you bring your child prior to 7:10 a.m., please wait with your child in our waiting area. High Point Elementary does not have staff to supervise students prior to 7:10 a.m. and we want all students to be safe! If you are dropping your child off in carpool, please utilize the carpool line. Cars are not allowed in the bus lane for safety reasons. Carpool students are not to enter the building prior to 7:10 a.m. when being dropped off. Thank you!
Visitor System: If you have not already done so, please stop by the front office to have your ID scanned into our new visitor system. Everyone must go through this process to gain entrance into the building. Safety is our number one priority!
Volunteers: If you plan on volunteering in the classroom or at a school event, you must complete the volunteer application. This can be found at Fulton County Schools Volunteer Page. Follow the process to complete the application. Applications take at least 48 hours to process. You will not be able to volunteer until you have been approved by the county. If you need access to a computer, you are more than welcome to complete the application and watch the video in our school. Our front office staff will be able to assist you.
