8th Grade Students: Permission slips for the 8th grade Civil and Human Rights field trip were sent home last week and are due back by Friday, February 14, 2020. It is imperative that permission slips are returned by the due date. Students not returning permission slips with parent signature will not be permitted to attend the trip. Although, Foundation is paying for this trip for our 8th grade students, a $10 donation is requested if possible to offset the cost. Mark the envelope with Foundation/Civil and Human Rights and place it in the box in the front office, NOT THE SAFE. 8th grade parents, we’d love it if you would serve as a chaperone for the Human and Civil Rights Museum on the day their student attends. Please contact Ms. Karen.Searles@cobbk12.org to sign-up.
6th Grade Students: 6th grade students will be going on a field trip on Thursday, April 2, 2020 to the College Football Hall of Fame. The cost is $20 and a signed permission slip. The permission slip was given to students by their homeroom teachers. Permission slip and money is due March 12, 2020!
Parents, you are welcome to take advantage of shout outs/special messages displayed on our digital marquee in the front of the school. See the PTSA’s website to sign-up for a special shout-out/message on the ECMS marquee.
Parents please refrain from allowing students to bring valuable items and electronic devices to school. When they do, it is at their own risk. We will not expend resources to police lost or stolen items. Please reiterate this message at home. It is in the best interest to leave expensive and valuable items at home.
Cell Phones: If a student is in possession of a cellphone/device upon entering a classroom… Cellphones/Devices must be docked in the pocket docking station upon entering class. (STUDENTS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO RETURN THE DEVICE TO THEIR LOCKER, IF THEY ARE IN POSSESSION OF IT UPON ENTERING CLASS, IT MUST BE DOCKED IN THE ASSIGNED DOCKING POCKET IN THE CLASSROOM). Cellphone/Devices should not be seen or heard in the classroom, cafe, hallway or at school unless it has been deemed appropriate for instructional use ONLY by the teacher, enacting BYOD; which will be communicated prior to or at the beginning of class. If a student’s phone is not docked in a pocket, which would indicate that the student is not in possession of a phone in the classroom. Students who violate the cell phone policy will receive consequences related to insubordination.
Parents for morning drop-off, please remember that the curb (red) in front of the school is a fire lane and is for drop-offs only. Please do not park. Some parents have been parking and waiting; which hinders other students from being dropped off. If you are here early and wait to let your student out of the car, please park in the parking lot and then drive to the drop off lane to let your student out in front of the school. Students must be picked up and dropped off at the red-curb lane right in front of the school. Students are never to cross over the car-rider line to the parking lot or vice-versa.
Parents are reminded that when picking up or dropping off students in our car-rider line to be alert, exercise patience and caution and be KIND! Those drivers who are impatient, uninformed or apathetic pose a great threat to our children, staff, and themselves during this time.
