Communication between the school community and families is critical if we are to be effective partners in your child's education. We send out a weekly email newsletter and callout to all parents. Please be sure to keep your contact information current with the school records department.

Are you connected?

Blackboard Connect - This allows the district and Baker to send phone messages, emails, or texts. You choose the way in which you'd like to receive messages.

Cobb Schools Twitter - During the recent inclement weather, CCSD was updating to their twitter feed a little faster than the website.  They also share a lot of the good news stories occurring in our schools. 

Websites and Blogs - Our county website is easy to use and hosts a lot of important information.  Our Baker main site contains information specific to our community - upcoming school events, contact information for our staff, and links to our teachers' blogs.
