• To report your student's absence, please email the NMS front desk (nmsfrontdesk@fultonschools.org).

    The Fulton County Board of Education considers regular school attendance essential to successful school progress. Students must be present to take full advantage of available educational opportunities.

    Parents are encouraged to review FCS Board Policy JBD: Attendance and Absences for important information regarding:

    • Late Arrivals / Early Checkouts
    • Excused Absences
    • Absences Recorded as Present
    • Unexcused Absences
    • Make-up Work
    • Parent Notification / Involvement
    • Recognition and Incentive Programs / Attendance Awards


    Any child in the state of Georgia subject to compulsory attendance who during the school calendar year has more than five (5) days of unexcused absences is considered truant (Georgia State Board of Education Rule 160-5-1-.10).

    Board Policy JD, Student Discipline, outlines consequences for failure to comply with this law.
