During their August 22 School Board meeting, the Board of Education approved a change to the 2019-2020 school calendar. March 24, originally scheduled as a regular school day, is now a Teacher Workday due to the presidential primary elections which will be held on the same day. Students will not report to school on March 24. Any additional calendar revisions will be addressed once community feedback is received. Superintendent Looney and the Board will discuss long-term solutions regarding election days during the September Board meeting. We will provide any updates as soon as it is communicated to us by the District.
2019-2020 School Year Calendar
Please click here to review the 2019-2020 school calendar for Shakerag Elementary. Our
school calendar is slightly different from the original Fulton County school
calendar. Our students will also be out on September 3, February 14,
and March 16 so our teachers can engage in additional
professional development opportunities.
Shakerag Volunteer Registration
Visitors will need to sign-in at the front desk with a state issued photo ID to receive a printed visitor/volunteer badge throughout the day. After June 1, 2018, everyone was required to complete the volunteer registration process even if you had completed it previously. The district is working on a two-calendar year rotation. To keep in compliance with State Law and best practices, for the 2019-2020 school year, if you did not complete the volunteer registration after June 1, 2018, we will require that all persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District to register by completing the online volunteer registration/application process. We recommend that you complete this process on a desktop or laptop computer, not a tablet device. The registration process can be found on the FCS District Website under Community/Partners & Volunteers. Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process. In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools. It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on their government issued ID (please do not use nicknames or "goes by" names on the application). All applicants must wait 24-48 hours after applying for application processing. If you have not completed the registration process since June 1, 2018, you will not be allowed to volunteer!
