Overview of a School Day
Don't forget, middle schools in CCSD begin at 9:15 am. To help you plan for your adjustment to middle school, below is an overview of what a typical day looks like.

Students arriving between 8:30 am and 8:50 am should report to the cafeteria for study hall. Students should not arrive prior to 8:30 am.
At 8:50 am all students will be released to their lockers and then go to their homeroom teacher. Students arriving after 8:50 am should go to their locker and then report to their homeroom teacher. Homeroom is sixth and seventh grade students first period class. For eighth grade students, homeroom is students fourth period class. At 9:15 am first period will begin for sixth and seventh grade students. They will remain in their homeroom class as it is also their first period class. At 9:20 am eighth graders will transition from homeroom to first period.

Students arriving after the 9:15 bell that starts the school day will need to sign in tardy at the Main Office.
Students will attend seven classes which are approximately 50 minutes in length.

Students will have scheduled locker access. Students should not share lockers or give out their locker combinations to others. Students who have PE/Health will also have a locker in the gym area. Students should not share this combination either.

Dismissal will be at 4:15 pm. Students needing to get a music instrument will then be able to go to the appropriate music room and then go out to either the bus port or the front of the school for car riders and walkers.
In regard to students walking home or being picked up from school, please remember that students who walk home must use the cross walk located by the bus port. Students being picked up must remain under the front porch of the school until their ride arrives in the car pickup lane (beginning where the banners are and ending at the front doors).

Every Pine Mountain Middle School student can benefit from using USA Test Prep this summer. Whether you want your child to not forget the standards they have learned this past school year or you want to see them master the standards even more, this home-based digital learning experience is simple to use and your child already has a member login account. USA Test Prep supports language arts, reading, mathematics, science, and social studies by breaking down questions into the same domains as tested on the Georgia Milestones through vocabulary, tests, practice, games, and videos. Encourage your child to get started and log as many hours as he or she can, even if just playing the games. And if you are up for the challenge, it makes for great family trivia too! You will be amazed at the academically challenging work your student is expected to know.

If you are new to Pine Mountain, email Principal Nelson today to receive your USA Testprep login information for your child.
