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.



Electronic Devices

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).



Student Attendance

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.


School hours 9:10-4:15
Study Hall starts @ 8:15
The Front doors are not unlocked until 8:15 each morning and will be locked at 4:45.

The price of “extra” yearbooks will be $50 (cash only), and will be available through a lottery on the yearbook distribution day at the end of the year.

Cobb Proposes Becoming IE2 District by June2015

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.
