Week of January 18

Happy Friday (of a LONG WEEKEND!) Bears and Bear Families!

Quick reminder that schools will be closed on Monday, January 17th in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.  I hope everyone takes time on Monday to reflect on his momentous contribution to our country and our world.  We will always face change, sometimes through trials and conflict.  By learning from our past, we can shape the future. 

“We are not makers of history.  We are made by history.”  Martin Luther King, Jr.

We will see everyone back in the building on Tuesday, January 18th

Below are the latest changes from Fulton County Schools regarding Covid mitigation:

  • Masks are required in all Fulton County Schools buildings through Friday, 1/21.

  • Please continue to report any Covid-19 related issues to the Parent Portal. Please note that the nurses and our response team are facing an unprecedented number of reported cases and will reply as quickly as possible in the order in which the reports were received.

Please remember – do not send your student to school if he/she is sick.  If you or your student test positive, please stay home, report to the Parent Portal, and isolate.  Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we continue to address the challenges of Covid. 

In other news, we are gearing up to begin course selections for the 2022-2023 school year!  To help students navigate and make choices in non-core classes, teachers have created videos explaining the workload, expectations, and content they will cover.  These videos will be available on the 20th for special programs classes (electives, AP, honors, pathways, and fine arts).  Check the website for more information and live links on the 20th.  Then, continue to check the website for additional updates on the course registration process. 

Quick thank you to all students and staff for moving quickly in our staggered drills this week.  The state requires a soft lockdown, hard lockdown, severe weather, and evacuation drill all be performed in the first week of each semester.  For extra safety, we did these drills in staggered fashion to keep down on crowding.  Teachers, Staff, and Students did a great job despite the disruption to their day.  Thank you!
