Cambridge Student Honored at FBLA State Leadership Conference
Trey Quinn was honored at the FBLA State Leadership Conference by GA FBLA Director, Monty Rhodes. Trey is the first recipient for the annual Trey Quinn Inspiration Award to be given each year for one of FBLA's truly inspiring members who reaches far beyond what may seem possible to most of us. Last year when Trey's Portfolio advanced to the National Conference he inspired Monty Rhodes to develop the state-wide TREY Project (Through Reaching Every Youth) to promote awareness of the American with Disabilities Act. Trey's perseverance and enthusiasm for life inspires all that have the honor of knowing him.

Friday, March 31, 2017
Please find below check out procedures for Friday, March 31, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact the Attendance Office.
Friday Checkout Procedures
Due to the volume of parents and guardians requesting to check out of their student(s) on the Friday before a school break, we have put into place the following check out procedures for Friday, March 31, 2017.
- Parents and guardians planning to check out their student next Friday must have a signed and dated note to the Attendance Office by 4:00 pm on Thursday, March 30.
- Students who have submitted a checkout note prior to 4:00 pm on Thursday should pick up their pass Friday morning before the bell rings. The student should give their pass to their teacher to leave at their check out time, reducing disruption to the classroom. Students will need to sign out at the Attendance Office prior to leaving.
- For students who did not submit a prior check out note, please be aware that due to the volume of check outs on Friday, March 31, the Attendance Office cannot accept telephone calls or emails to arrange for a check out. Parents will need to come to the Attendance Office in person to check out their student.
- Due to a planned school activity, walk-in check outs by parents and guardians cannot be honored after 1:45 pm on Friday, March 31.
Other checkout reminders:
- A checkout that results in any part of the school day being missed is considered unexcused until a medical or legal note from the parent or guardian is submitted to the attendance office. Notes need to be submitted within three days of returning to school from the absence. For a list of excused absences please refer to the attendance guidelines.
- If the student does not have a pre-arranged checkout note, a hand delivered note will be taken to the student when a student aid is available. We do not call into rooms to dismiss students.
- To keep classroom disruptions to a minimum, we ask that students not be checked out during the first and last ten minutes of the period.

Student Microsoft Surfaces
There is a Help Desk in the Student Center before school, during lunches, and during all PAWS classes for students who need help. Students can bring their devices to the Student Center (with teacher permission during PAWS) for troubleshooting. If the Help Desk is not able to fix the problem, the device may need to be assessed by the School Tech and possibly sent for repair. Every effort will be made to minimize the time students are without a device. Below are troubleshooting tricks students may also try when experiencing issues with their device.
