Georgia Parent Survey
The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphones, or tablet. For parents who do not have access to the Internet, please contact the school Media Specialist. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Individual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

Parent Interest Survey for Career Day
Please use the following link for a parent interest survey for Career Day.
We are collecting names for Thanksgiving and Holiday assistance. If your family is in need of assistance during this time of year and would like to request help, please contact one of the school counselors: Cathy Fearing, Barbara Truluck, or K.J. Tanner or our School Social Worker, Ginnie Barnes at 770-591-5020. If you are requesting assistance, please contact one of the above by OCTOBER 28, 2016. All requests will be kept confidential.
Students Leaving Early
Please help us to maximize your students learning experience by minimizing classroom interruptions. We ask that if your child needs to leave school early, please SEND a note with him/her to school. Your child should take the note to the Attendance Office where he/she will be given an early dismissal pass. That way, your child will be waiting for you in the Attendance Office when you arrive. Your help with student check-out will be greatly appreciated! Due to verification we cannot accept dismissals over the phone.
