Student and Parent Portal
By now you should have received an email containing a link to your child’s portal. This portal will give you information about your child’s grades, attendance, school announcements, calendar events and you even can order lunch. Please log in and go to the registration tab to make sure your information is correct. Also, you can change your password, and make changes to your preferences. If you have any questions, please contact the office.
Our attendance policy states that a student may miss up to 30 days in the school year 20 of which may be unexcused. High school courses take period attendance, and if your child misses more than the amount of days allowed, then they will not be to pass that particular subject even though they may have been here for the rest of the classes. It is imperative that your child arrives on time and tries not to miss any more days than necessary.
In addition, according to O.C.G.A. 40-5-22(a.1) (2) suspension of their license is mandated for any student having ten (10) or more unexcused absences. If your child is absent, it is imperative that you send an excuse. Please visit http://www.dds.ga.gov/teens for more information about teens and driving.
The school is in need of a freezer for our lunch program. If you have an extra working freezer that you are willing to donate, please contact the office.
We have recently cleared a cross country trail for our students on the backside of our property and could use a golf cart to help in the trail management. If you have or know of someone that might have a golf that they would be willing to donate, please contact or office.
