New to Hopewell? Student Enrollment Info.
Our goal is to make the transition to Hopewell Middle School a smooth and positive experience for both our students and their families. This begins with answering your questions, understanding your student's specific interests and discussing the proper placement to address his or her academic needs. To accomplish this, we ask that you contact Hopewell's front office at 470-254-3240 to make a registration appointment. We are unable to accommodate walk in registrations.
Following is a list of the documents that must be brought to the registration appointment. If you are unable to provide all of the documents at the time of your appointment, please call to reschedule.

- Immunization Certificate
Georgia requires students to be immunized against measles, mumps, polio, rubella, whooping cough, tetanus, diphtheria, hepatitis B and varicella. Form 3231 from the Georgia Department of Human Resources is the form used for documenting the immunization status for children who will be admitted to any school in Georgia for the first time on or after August 1, 2000. The form is only available at your Georgia licensed physician. Please refer to the Immunization Requirements section below for more information.
- Certificate of Eye, Ear and Dental Screenings
The information must be on a Georgia Department of Human Resources Certificate Form 3300 and must be signed by the Health Department or a licensed physician.
- Academic Records/Withdrawal
Schools will often send us records at a later date, but it is extremely important to bring valuable academic information at the time of registration. Bring the most recent report card, transcripts, and any standardized achievement test scores the child has had in the past two years. Please also bring your withdrawal form from your prior school (including address, phone and fax number of previous school). More complete information will enable us to efficiently provide accurate placement for your child.
- Academic and Disciplinary Records Request
Please fill out an Academic and Disciplinary Records Request and include the fax number and address of the prior school. If there is more than one school attended within the academic year, please fill out two forms - one for each school. (Exception: If you are enrolling with us from another Fulton County School you do NOT need to fill this form out.)

Students may choose a general connections program or a performing music connections program. In addition, students have the option of taking a World Language in lieu of a Reading course if they meet the placement criteria.

Bring the latest IEP from the current school. Contact the school IST for information in this area.
- Talented and Gifted Placement
On school letterhead, the current school administration must state your child is currently enrolled in a Talented and Gifted program and state the criteria for placement. If you have an eligibility form, please supply it also. A complete testing history is needed. Have the school supply a list of the courses in which your child was enrolled. Supply placement information and grades in all core curriculum subjects. Only students enrolled in a gifted program within the state of Georgia will receive direct placement into the TAG program at HMS. Contact the TAG coordinator or see the TAG information on the Fulton County Schools website.

Georgia's immunization requirements have changed for children entering 7th grade and for students who are considered "new entrants" in grades 8-12.
Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, these students will be required to have Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) and MCV (meningococcal conjugate) vaccines prior to entering school. A "new entrant" means any child entering a Georgia school for the first time or entering after having been absent for more than 12 months or one school year.
Immunization requirements have not changed for children entering prekindergarten and kindergarten or for those already enrolled in a Georgia school for grades 1-6 and 8-12.
Parents should plan to have their child vaccinated well in advance of the start of the 2017/18 school year. Students will not be able to register or receive class schedules unless they submit proof of these vaccines. If you have questions, please contact your health care provider or the local health department.
Please review the CARPOOL PROCEDURES that explains the new carpool procedures.
Planning to travel? Check this first
If you are planning to travel during the school year, please review your child's attendance record first. Fulton County Schools' attendance policy can be found online at www.hopewellmustangs.net under Parents, 2015-2016 Handbook and on page 6 in your child's agenda. Please note that in order to have any planned absence considered approved, a letter from the parent must be submitted to the assistant principal PRIOR (3 to 5 days) to the planned absence. Approved absences are limited to six (6) per year. The absence may or may not be approved. As well, if your child has missed 10 or more total days of school this year, you may be asked to provide medical notes for additional absences to be considered excused (in accordance with Fulton County's attendance policy). Please reconsider scheduling your family travel/vacation time to coincide with school breaks and avoid missed class time whenever possible.
Thank you for your assistance in keeping your student in class for instruction.
