DELIVERIES TO SCHOOL

Students may purchase lunch from the cafeteria or students may bring lunch with them to school.  As a courtesy to our students, microwaves are available if lunch needs to be heated.  We do not allow lunch deliveries to school.  Our school days are very busy and we cannot accommodate requests to deliver lunch to students.  Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.


ALL BOOSTERS MEETING

The Pebblebrook “All Boosters” meeting will be held the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:30 PM in the media center.  This meeting is open to all members of the athletic and club boosters as well as any parent of a participant.


MAJOR GAINS IN TEST SCORES
Pebblebrook High School, along with three other high schools in Cobb County, yielded the highest year-to-date gains in Coordinate Algebra for the district.  Pebblebrook improved by 9 percentage points.  Also, we were one of the only two high schools who saw our test scores either improve or stay the same when compared to last year.  Great work Pebblebrook!    


Congratulations to Pebblebrook Students and Staff Named by the Washington Post as one of the Most Challenging High Schools in the nation! (12 Cobb schools named)


STUDENT IDENTIFICATION

Students should wear or have their IDs on them at all times.  We will order a limited number of lanyards that we can make available to students.  For safety reasons, we need to be able to identify Pebblebrook students especially since we have an open campus.  Reminding your child of this requirement will assist us.

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

FIRE LANE CHANGES FOR SCHOOLS
The Cobb County Fire Lane Ordinance was amended to include a provision for student pick-up at schools. Per the Fire Marshall's Office, no one is allowed to park in a Fire Lane, whether there is a driver in the vehicle or not, at any time other than the following:

  • 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day and 30 minutes after the end of the school day (this does not include the After School Program nor any other activity at the school)
  • Passengers actively loading or unloading during the day (this would cover students unloading in the morning at the beginning of the school day)
  • Stopping or parking a vehicle in a fire lane at any other time is prohibited, unless passengers are actively loading or unloading.
  • Enforcement of this new provision will begin on April 9, 2012. Fire lanes can be identified by “No Parking Fire Lane” signage and/or curbing that is red in color. Fire lane violations currently result in a fine of $135.00.

Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the Department of Public Safety (678) 594-8620.
