Upon our return from winter break, we received an updated testing calendar from the district for Georgia Milestones.  This new schedule will provide some of the following benefits to our students:

  • We will have a full week back in school following Spring Break before testing begins.
  • Students will only be completing one section of the test each day, hopefully decreasing testing fatigue
  • Testing on any given day should take less than 2 hours
  • Spreading out testing countywide will decrease the number of students testing on the same platform at one time
  • This supports schools that may not be as fortunate as ours in regards to the number of devices they have on hand

    Please mark your calendars to reflect the following changes.  We truly apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause.  We look forward to the positive benefits this schedule may have for our children.

This time of year is often referred to as "flu season."  Flu viruses tend to peak between December and March. Doctors at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta say flu season usually starts to peak in metro Atlanta right after the holidays in January. Typical symptoms of the flu include fever, cough, sore throat, running or stuffy nose, headache, muscle aches, and fatigue. If your child is sick, please keep him/her at home until their symptoms have improved and they have been fever free for 24 hours (without using fever reducing medication). For more information on the Flu Season 2018-2019, click here or visit www.cdc.gov/flu

School Calendar Change

At the Fulton County Board meeting in August, the Board voted to approve the Superintendent's recommendation to change the district's 2018-19 School Year Calendar. November 6, 2018 has been changed from a regular school day to a teacher work day. March 8, 2019 has been changed from a teacher work day, to a regular school day.

This decision was made to alleviate safety concerns raised by some parents and staff in regards to several campuses being used for voting on November 6. It also allows for additional staff training and maintains instructional time for students.
