Thanksgiving is just around the corner! 

As we begin to prepare for this special time with our families, please consider helping the thousands of people in Cobb County who may not have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at all. 

Murdock is working on making this a happy Thanksgiving season for these families in need by participating in the Thanks for Giving Program sponsored by Comcast and the CFR (Center for Family Resources.)

It's very simple.  All we need to do is purchase food items and send them in to your child's classroom.  A truck will come pick up the food items on November 18th, and will deliver them to families in Cobb County who desperately need this food. 

As you count your many blessings, please consider donating to help those families who are struggling and need assistance for a Happy Thanksgiving.

-Complete the Acceptable Use Policy and User Agreement form in person at the school. 
Only the enrolling parent may complete this form.  Photo identification must be provided.

-Receive your individualized Activation Key

Lunch Visitor Policy Changes     

To better ensure the safety of our children we have revised our lunch visitor policy.

 Parent(s)/Guardian(s) must send a note in the morning if their child is expecting a lunch visitor that day.

  Please specify the visitor’s name and relationship to your child in the letter. 

Lunch visitor notes will be forwarded to the front office for reference when the visitor checks in. 

We will apologetically deny any visitor for whom a letter has not been sent. 

Enrolling parent(s)/guardian(s) are always welcome to visit at lunch without a note. 

Parents or visitors can ONLY take their child to visitor table, no extra students.

Thank you for your help and understanding as we implement this policy to better protect our children.
