New Sign OUT Procedure Face-to-Face for Parents/Guardians
When you have a scheduled appointment for your child, send an email to 701SignOut@fultonschools.org with the following information:
- the name of your child
- the date, time and reason for pick up
- the name of parent/guardian who will be picking up your child
On the day you come to school to pick up your child, please buzz the front office. Inform the staff the reason you are at school. Please hold up driver’s license to the camera so that the staff can verify your identity. Once your identity is confirmed, staff will call into the classroom to have your child dismissed. Your child will meet you outside the front entrance. If you show up to the school wanting to pick up your child without sending an email to 701SignOut@fultonschools.org, you will be asked to send an email while standing outside the building. After the email is received and your identification verified, staff will call your child for dismissal.
Please follow the recommended set of steps to ensure your child's device is ready for the first day of school
(1) Have your child fully power their laptop. (2) Bring the computer and student to an FCS school, i.e., Abbotts Hill, Ocee, Findley Oaks, Chattahoochee, River Trail, etc., and get close enough to the building to pick up the FCS-WIFI signal. (3) Once positioned close enough to pick up the wireless signal, power up the laptop, and restart. The update may take up to 20 minutes.(4) Repeat often during remote learning to keep your FCS laptop updated.
