Your Voice Matters!
Haynes Bridge Middle School lead by Fulton County Schools is engaged in an ongoing continuous improvement process. Part of this process involves collecting data to help inform our decision making. An anonymous, online survey is available as a means to elicit your opinions to help target areas for the school system to improve and areas to continue to be effective. The five sections on the survey represent the five AdvancED Standards for Quality School Systems and provide a means for learning about parent/guardian expectations of a high-quality school system. Your honest opinion is appreciated. Please contact Ms. Armstrong at 770 740-7030 if you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance. We need to have a minimum participation rate of 20%; we are hoping for 100%. Thank you for your continued support of Haynes Bridge Middle School.

Bullying (for parents)
October 17, 2014 Noon-1pm at Haynes Bridge
Melissa Gordon, Ed.S. School Psychologist will speak with parents on "Tease-Proofing Your Child". In middle school teasing can be particularly difficult for kids who are likely sorting out their identity. While teasing can be fun and build social relationships, it can take a turn towards mean spirited. The purpose of this presentation is to explore how to differentiate good teasing from bad teasing as well as discuss techniques that kids can use to stand up for themselves. While this is a serious topic, the approach will be informative, fun, and empowering.
There is no cost to attend. Please feel free to bring your lunch. For questions, contact Abby Winkles at winklesA@fultonschools.org or Mary K Hinkle at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Attention 6th Grade and 7th Grade Parents
Georgia's immunization requirements have changed for children entering 7th grade (who were born on or after January 1, 2002) and for students who are considered "new entrants" in grades 8-12. Also, 6th grade requirements are different than 5th grade requirements. Detailed information is available here.
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 adress: HACSuggestions@fultonschools.org.
