At its Thursday, February 20 meeting, the Fulton County School Board approved a plan for making up the instructional time missed due to recent inclement weather days. March 14 is now an instructional day for students instead of a Teacher Workday; schools will be in session as usual.
We are aware that parents have expressed concern regarding testing. The make-up plan therefore includes five additional days for CRCT preparation. The CRCT testing window for elementary and middle school students now begins April 22. Additionally, district leaders are exploring ways for schools to provide students with additional academic support after school, and digital resources aligned to the curriculum are also being developed for students. Updates will be provided to parents as plans are finalized.
Spring break remains unchanged and is scheduled for April 7-11. High school graduation dates are not impacted and the last day of school will be May 23.
Thank you for your partnership as we work together to support our students.

Oak Knoll Emergency Procedures: Oak Knoll has processes and procedures in place in the event of different kinds of emergency situations. Some situations such as a bomb threat, gas leak or chemical spill call for an off-site evacuation. In the event that the school has to be evacuated off-site, parents will be contacted by staff regarding the evacuation, and specific location for pick-up at a designated reunification site. This is one reason that it is of the utmost importance that you send updated contact information to the school to ensure that the staff is able to reach you immediately. The transportation department will also be contacted regarding the site change. Buses will be rerouted to the reunification site to collect students who normally ride the bus and transport them home.
