On August 21st, the Cobb County School District has extended the school day by 45 minutes as a result of the solar eclipse. In preparation for the event, we purchased the NASA certified protection eyewear for our 4th and 5th grade students and teachers. Only students in those grade levels will be allowed to view the eclipse live outside with proper eyewear and parent permission. Permission slips will be sent home in Tuesday Tracker folders on August 15th and must be returned by Friday, August 18th. Students in K-3rd grades will be allowed to watch a live stream of the event from their classrooms. Any students that have a portable classroom will be brought into the cafeteria to watch a live stream of the event. As always, you are allowed to check your student out prior to 2:00 pm. We are asking for no checkouts from 2:00pm – 3:00 pm. There will be additional support in the front office from 11:30-12:30 to assist with early checkouts. Dismissal will begin at approximately 3:05 with bus students. Please feel free to call the school if you have any further questions or concerns.
Please do not forget about our NEW “buzz in” door lock system at the main entrance of the school. This feature will keep the main entrance door locked at all times except 7:00-8:10 a.m. on school days. Outside of that specific time frame, all guests to our school will need to “buzz in.” Part of the system includes a box outside of the main entrance door that is equipped with a door bell and camera. Staff members working in the front office will receive an alert when a guest arrive and rings the bell. The office staff will be able to see and hear the guest, and once the guest shows an ID and states the nature of their business, the office staff will “buzz in” the guest, asking them to report to the main office to sign in.
It will require cooperation on the part of all of our parents and other guests to school so please remember:
- You must always present your ID and let the office staff know why you are visiting at the “buzz in” camera. We are going to ask everyone, every time you come to the door. Please know this is for the safety of everyone, especially our students. Please do not allow other adults to enter with you/hold the door for them as we must buzz each person in separately.
- The door is locked at 8:10 so please work hard to have your child bring everything they need to school so you won’t have to make a special trip to school to deliver something to them. If you must deliver, make sure you have your ID with you when you come to the door. The office staff will not be able to go to the door and get a lunch/jacket/homework/etc.
- There will be no dismissal after 1:45 to ensure a safe and orderly dismissal process. Please do not come after 1:45 to pick your child up for appointments, etc. If you are late to pick them up, they will be dismissed during regular dismissal times.
We know that you will join us in thanking Cobb County School District for being on the forefront of adding additional safety and security measures for your child(ren). We appreciate your cooperation as we transition into using this newest safety feature. Thank for working with us to keep everyone safe!
Carpool: If you are picking your children up in carpool line, please DO NOT enter the parking lot before 2:00, in order to give buses time to line up. You will be asked to leave the parking lot if you enter the car rider line too early.Buses: Buses will leave at approximately 2:30. (The first few days take a little longer.) You can visit www.cobbk12.org to find bus routes and times. The school will also post bus routes outside on Thursday, July 30th, so you can see them during sneak-a-peek.
