    How do I get a forgotten personal item to my student if they have left it at home?

    If you need to drop an item off for your student, drop it off on the cart outside the front office door with a completed slip of paper.  We periodically go outside to bring in the items and leave them in an area for students to collect during transitions.  Students are not allowed to check their phones during the day. Please don't text/call them to notify them that the item is at the school.  They would be breaking a school rule.

    How do I get a forgotten lunch to my student if they have left it at home?

    If you forget to send lunch for your student, you may drop it off no later than 11:15am on the cart outside of the front office door with a slip of paper.  This is so that we can ensure that your child is able to have it for their lunch period.

    Can I pick up assignments for my student when they are unable to come to school?

    Assignments may be requested by emailing your students' teacher.  Their email is on our school website https://www.fultonschools.org/haynesbridgems or on your infinite campus account.

    What happens if my students loses their agenda?

    Students are given one at the beginning of the year and are expected to use the student agenda as an organizational tool as well as a hall pass.  Students are expected to always have the agenda with them.  Lost agendas must be replaced by the student at a cost of $5.  This can be paid in cash in the media center or on our website
