Check Out Procedures
Friday, March 30, 2018
Due to the volume of parents and guardians requesting to check out their student(s) on the Friday before a school break, we have put into place the following checkout procedures for Friday, March 30, 2018.
- Parents and guardians planning to check out their student Friday, March 31 must have a signed and dated note to the Attendance Office by 4:00 pm on Thursday, March 29.
- Students who have submitted a checkout note before 4:00 pm on Thursday should pick up their pass Friday morning before the bell rings. The student should show their pass to their teacher to leave at their checkout time, reducing disruption to the classroom. Students will need to sign out at the Attendance Office before leaving campus.
For students who did not submit a prior checkout note, please be aware that due to the volume of checkouts on Friday, March 30, the Attendance Office cannot accept telephone calls or emails to arrange for a checkout. Parents will need to come to the Attendance Office in person to check out their student.

Tech Tips for Students
Effective immediately, all students will need to restart their Surface each day as we begin to prepare for the April End of Course (EOC) tests. The technology department will be sending required updates to all Fulton County devices daily, and failure to receive the updates may interfere with the optimal operation of your Surface.
If you are currently experiencing problems with your device, you will need to report the issues to the Help Desk, located in the Student Center.
Fulton County student email
It is critical for all students to check their Fulton County email every day. Daily announcements, called Cambridge Headlines, are pushed to students through their email account that provides information on activities, resources, and deadlines. Also, the Cambridge Administration sends important information to all students; including information on security and safety.
To access Student Fulton County email from any device:
1. Open a web browser and go to portal.office.com
2. Log into Office 365 using:
Password: birthdate (mmddyyyy) or their unique password
3. Once logged into Office 365, select the Mail app to view important email from Cambridge Headlines, teachers and staff.
4. The first time you access Office 365 Mail, you will need to select your time zone and save it.
Students should come to the Student Center to see Mrs. Morgan, Mrs. Macleod, or the Help Desk if you are having problems with your Surface or you cannot access your email account.
