Peanut butter allegies


Dear Parents,

Please be aware that there is a student in your child’s classroom with a severe allergy to peanuts. A child with this type of allergy must avoid any contact with food made from these products. These children are at risk for severe and potentially life threatening allergic reaction. We ask that you do not send any food to school that contains peanut butter or peanut products. If your child must have peanut products on a certain day, please contact your child’s teacher BEFORE sending the food so we can make classroom adjustments as necessary.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Please your student’s classroom teacher, or an administrator with any questions or concerns.


Estimados Padres,

Quiero informarles  que en el salón de clases de su hijo hay un estudiante que es alérgico al maní (cacahuate).  Un niño que tiene este tipo de alergia debe evitar el contacto con cualquier alimento que contenga este ingrediente. Estos niños están expuestos y a riesgo de tener una reacción alérgica severa que podría amenazar sus vidas. Por favor, le solicitamos, no envíe a la escuela cualquier alimento que contenga o pueda contener mantequilla de maní o sus derivados. Si su hijo tiene que traer algún día un alimento con maní  o sus derivados, por favor, contacte al maestro de su hijo ANTES de enviarlo  para hacer los ajustes y tomar las medidas necesarias en el salón de clases.

Gracias por su cooperación y comprensión. Si tiene alguna pregunta o preocupación, puede comunicarse con el maestro de su hijo, o con uno de los administradores de la escuela.

What is ESOL and how does it work?

What is ESOL and how does it work?

What is ESOL?

ESOL is a program for English Language Learners of other Languages.


How does my child qualify for the ESOL?

Students are identified through the Home Language Survey questionnaire on the registration form. If any response is another language other than English, your child will be tested for ESOL services.

The W-APT is used to screen Kindergartners and the WIDA Screener is used to screen grades 1-5.


If my child qualifies, how does the program work?

Grades k-3 will receive one 45 minute segment every day.

-Grades 4-5 will receive one or two 50 minute segment every day.

Here are some of the following models that Cobb County Schools use to serve ESOL students:

  • Direct (Push-In)- The students will remain with their general education classroom and the ESOL teacher pushes into the classroom to work with students to provide language support.
  • Pull-Out- The ESOL students will be pulled from their general education classroom and will receive small group instruction with the ESOL teacher.


ESOL services

The students will receive language support and instruction in the four domains: speaking, listening, reading, and writing while incorporating vocabulary, grammar, phonics, reading strategies and comprehension, as well as utilizing graphic organizers for writing.

Students may also receive testing accommodations for state and local tests. Testing accommodations are modifications that may include some of the following: extended time, small group testing, frequent breaks, or repetition of directions. Testing accommodations are determined by the Testing Participation Committee.


Assessments for ESOL students

Every year ESOL students will take a standardized test called ACCESS 2.0 in late January/early February. ACCESS assess students’ language proficiency in the four domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing.

ALL active ESOL students are required to take ACCESS 2.0, including students who are active, but are not receiving language support.


Access Scoring Range

1-Entering: knows and uses minimal social language and minimal academic language with visual and graphic support

2-Beginning: knows and uses some social English and general academic language with visual and graphic support

3-Developing: knows and uses social English and some specific academic language with visual and graphic support

4-Expanding: knows and uses social English and some technical academic language

5-Bridging: knows and uses social English and academic language working with grade level material

6-Reaching: knows and uses social and academic language at the highest level measured by this test

*Level 5 and 6 have the skills necessary to exit the ESOL program and their progress are monitored for 2 years.

Additional safety and security measures

Please do not forget about our  “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:

  1.  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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
