Parking Lot Safety
Safety of our students is a high priority. There have been some concerns about dismissal, traffic flow and students in the upper parking lot. After making some observations we are beginning immediately to make a few changes in the afternoon dismissal procedure. Parents may continue to park in the upper parking lot until students are dismissed at 4:12. After this time the upper parking lot will become a one-way, direction out only egress to ensure greater safety of students walking in the parking lot in route to their parents’ car. No other cars will be allowed in at that time. Parents must get in the pick-up line that goes down the turn-around to pick up their students in front of the building. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding with this change.

Parking Lot Helpful Hints:
Information about Procedures for morning drop off and dismissal.
Hot or cold temperatures and precipitation result in more parents driving their children to school. This means increased traffic during the morning and afternoon drop-off and pickup times. To ensure that all students are safe, please adhere to the following procedures:
- Upon entering school property, continue down the drive to the turn-around circle. This increases the number of cars which can que in the drive of the school, alleviating traffic on Jims Road. This procedure should be followed in the morning and the afternoon.
- The upper parking lot should be used when there is a need to park and come into the building.
- Do not double park in the parking lot.
Thank you for your assistance.

Bus Pass Policy:
Students will no longer be allowed to ride home on a different bus than assigned. This policy change is due to the high volume of riders this year. Students will be permitted to ride their assigned bus and get off at another stop provided they have a note from their parent and a pass from the office. This bus pass may be filled out if your child needs to ride the same bus, but get off at a different stop. Any other exceptions to this rule must be approved by the Cobb County Transportation Department and school administration.

Letters to the Troops:
Mabry Middle School participated in Radio Station Q100's Big Thank You. This started as a writing opportunity for our student body but quickly turned into a show of patriotism by our school community. In addition to writing letters, students began creating bulletin boards, making letter drop boxes and producing videos. We set a goal of 1000 letters but surpassed it with 1308 letters. The beauty and kindness of students was shown throughout the written letters. A true understanding of the sacrifices being made for our freedom was discovered. This was much more than a letter writing campaign it was a lesson in human compassion. We have continued our out reach by collecting candy for the troops. We invite others to join us in showing our gratitude and support to the troops.
To assist our community we have included a link to county resources that you may find helpful:

Be There Campaign:
Cobb County has teamed up with thirteen other metropolitan school districts to promote the Be There campaign sponsored by WSB-TV.
The purpose of this campaign is to promote parent involvement in school. Studies have shown that when you connect with your child everyday, your child benefits for life. When he or she knows you care and are concerned about education, the following occurs:
- Achievement in school improves; students earn higher grades and test scores and enroll in higher-level programs
- Children want to go to school
- Courses are passes, credits earned and students are promoted to the next grade
- Self-confidence improves
To learn more about the Be There campaign, please visit their site:
