School-Day Extended 45 Minutes on August 21 due to Solar Eclipse

Due to the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017,  the Cobb County School District will delay dismissal of elementary, middle and high school students by 45 minutes.   
The peak time to experience the solar eclipse falls during our regularly scheduled elementary school dismissal time.  Since student safety is always our first priority so we will delay dismissal to ensure that neither students nor employees are on the roadways during the time of the eclipse.   Subsequently, high schools and middle schools will delay dismissal as well. 
Schools will be provided with further guidance and instructional resources as appropriate.  Parents are welcome to pick-up their child at the typical dismissal time if needed.
 

For more information regarding the solar eclipse visit the National Weather Service at http://www.weather.gov/sgf/SolarEclipse

Construction Update

Access to the school will be open for Greyhound Madness on Tuesday, July 25th. Traffic must enter Pope from the north (Dorset/North Hembree Rd) side.
The new roundabout will officially open on July 30th for all traffic.

Greyhound Madness, Student Fees & MyPayments Plus

NEW this year –it’s been a long time coming! Pope parents can now pay for student fees and selected- activities using a charge card!  We are very fortunate that MyPaymentsPlus is the website for you to pay students fees and replenish lunch accounts at home!  If you only need to pay for fees during Greyhound Madness, then you can do it online and you do not need to come to the school. You may already have an account for student lunch account and possibly even years ago if your child attended After School Program in elementary school. Directions to set up an account linked to your student can be found HERE.
The student fee sheet contains the common items for each student in their particular grade. Print a copy of your receipt for records.  Please use form available at school if you are not paying online. One check per student made payable to Pope High School or exact cash amount.
Online payment for the parking fee is not available at this time.

Pope's Summer 2017 Campus Schedule:

This summer, 2017, Pope High School will face the challenge of executing summer camps and workouts around the ongoing campus additions of the gym/theater along with a major construction project of transforming the front entrance into a roundabout . Due to the need to totally shutdown the entrance at times throughout the project, we have worked with the DOT to arrange times that traffic will be able to access campus with more ease than other times during the day. The following times should be followed by all persons planning to visit Pope High School this summer. Otherwise, there will be a good chance that delays of 15-30 minutes or more could be encountered when trying to access our campus. Coaches have been informed of these times and will make accommodations to tailor workouts/camps/practices to fit these times to help as much as possible with traffic flow. Although these times have been presented to the DOT , there will be times that delays will not be avoidable. We appreciate your pa-tience through one more summer as Pope High School transforms into a more attractive and inviting campus.
