Husky Huddle for
2016-17 Summit Hill Kindergarteners!
It's time to round up the newest Husky pups! Parents and their children who are eligible to attend Summit Hill Elementary Kindergarten in 2016-17 are invited to our "Husky Huddle" on Thursday, February 25, 2016. Beginning at 9:00 AM, this hour-long program provides parents with a preview of important curriculum and registration information as well as a virtual tour of a typical kindergarten day.
Simultaneously, future kindergarten students themselves take off on a guided "V.I.P." tour of Summit Hill during which they see the building, visit a kindergarten classroom, listen to a read-aloud book in the Media Center, and even board a stationary school bus in the parking lot! Afterward, prospective Husky pups return to the cafeteria to enjoy a snack of juice and cookies and reunite with their parents!
Please note that new student registration (Kindergarten – Grade 5) for students coming to Summit Hill in 2016-17 is expected to take place the first week in May. We will publicize registration dates as soon as we receive that information from Fulton County Schools.
We are excited to welcome our new Husky pups and hope to see you February 25th! Please share this news with your friends and neighbors!
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 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!
