New Student Registration
Welcome to the Lost Mountain Middle School community!
Please print the
enrollment checklist and call 678-594-8224 for
an appointment with our counselors to register your child.
Students under the age of 18 years of age MUST be accompanied by
a parent or legal guardian when enrolling in school. A student
will not be enrolled without all necessary documentation
according the Cobb County District Administrative Rule JBC-5.
All personal electronic
devices (cell phones, tablets, iPod’s, PSP’s, etc) must be
turned off upon arrival at school and remain off until the
school day ends. Students may not display or use any electronic
device during the school day unless designated for a learning
task by a teacher in their class on a specific day. Any device
seen or heard during the
school day will be confiscated and turned in to the main office.
Repeated violations constitute insubordination resulting in
progressive disciplinary consequences. The confiscated item will
only be released to the parent or guardian. Parents may pick up
electronic devices after 4:15 p.m. on the day the item is
collected and any day thereafter
during regular office hours (8:15 – 4:45).
Please read the attached
student attendance policy!
Lost Mountain has partnered with the Daily Grind to introduce a fantastic new way to show teachers how much we
appreciate them. Please encourage a teacher today. Buy them a lunch credit and they will know how much you really appreciate them. They
will get a tasty lunch delivered to their school and the program will add $1 to a gift card of their choice. Very Important:
Leave a note on their board and make their day (they will get this note emailed to them)!
Visit Teacher's Lunch Box
to treat a teacher and learn more about this exciting new community partnership.

Cobb Proposes Becoming IE2 District
State law requires all Georgia school
districts to choose a framework for leading and operating
schools. The Cobb County School District currently saves almost
$44 million annually through state waivers no longer available
after July 1, 2015, unless a contract is developed to become
either a charter system or an Investing in Educational
Excellence (IE2) system. The Cobb County Board of Education will
take up the IE2 proposal at its Sept. 2014 meeting.
