Thank you to The Northside Hospital Foundation! Our school has become a “Partner in Education” with Northside Hospital. We were fortunate enough to receive monies enabling us to buy some new clinic equipment and new educational materials for the clinic. You will see throughout the remainder of the school year, various drives to collect items that The Northside Foundation needs. Let’s say a big “Thank You!” to Northside by making sure we remember to donate to the drives!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school. Attached to the newsletter email you can find the "opt out" permission slip as well as a copy on our website. Remember to only complete this and return it to the school if you do not wish for your child to participate., the deadline to return these is Feb 3, 2015.
Parents are also asked to participate in this survey. Participating in the survey allows the state of Georgia to gather data to drive decision-making on education and social programs.

Early Dismissal Policy/Procedure
Parents, just a gentle reminder that all doctor/dentist and other appointments should be scheduled for before of after school hours. We understand that at times there is a need for appointments to be made during instruction time. During these emergencies the following procedures are important for both the safety of our students and staff and for minimal disruption of instruction time:
-Please write a note to the attendance office requesting your child to be dismissed at a particular time. The note should include the date, time and reason for early dismissal.
-Have your child bring the note to the office prior to the beginning of school so that we may take the steps necessary to have your child at the office and ready for you to pick up.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter. These easy steps will help to make early dismissal run smoothly for both you and the school. Remember no students should be checked out after 3:45pm. Any questions, please contact the Front Office.
HAC ID's are available in the front office . You will need your driver's license to pick up your ID.
Please be advised that HAC end-users are now able to send an email concerning HAC concerns to the following email address: HACSuggestions@fultonschools.org.
