A Brief Message from the New Principal!
I am so thankful and excited for this new opportunity. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the coming weeks and am confident that it will be a smooth transition. I believe in cultivating a safe, secure, and nurturing learning environment. I believe in creating high expectations for teaching, learning, and collaboration. I believe in building and maintaining relationships within the community. I believe in supporting all stakeholders. My goal for the remainder of the school year is to lead by listening, learning, and supporting my staff, my students, and my community. I am honored to serve the Summit Hill community, and I am ready to end the school year on top of the hill. Happy to be a Husky!
Summit Hill Principal Announcement
Fulton County Schools is making it easier for parents of new students to complete their child's registration for enrollment into a Fulton County School. Parents can access the easy-to-complete, online form here. This option allows parents to control the data supplied for their student's enrollment and provide for more timely processing of the enrollment request. Parents can upload copies of the required supporting documents in .pdf, jpeg, and .tif formats.
While this registration process will make it easier, parents will still need to bring their original documents to the school prior to the start of school. School personnel, must verify the authenticity of the documentation prior to enrollment being completed.

CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION
If your child is changing dismissal routines, such as taking a different bus home or riding on his/her regular bus but switching stops, a note must be sent to your child's teacher upon arrival. Changes in bus routines are approved for child care purposes only, not play dates. Changes in bus stops or bus numbers must be approved in advance by both transportation and school administration.
If your child is riding home at carpool with someone other than your identified guardian or release adults, you must send a note to your child's teacher upon arrival. We need your signature and approval on any additional names of adults to whom your child can be released. The name of the person taking the child will be checked against the Emergency Contact List and I.D. may be requested.
For best results, any changes in dismissal should be in the teacher's hands by 8:00 a.m. Changes after 2:05 pm are difficult to guarantee success.
When emergencies arise and a change in dismissal is needed, parents must contact the front office staff by phone as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping your children safe!
