Construction Update

Parents and Students,   As a part of the two year construction project provided by SPLOST IV, Pope High School is getting new floors throughout the building. In order to ensure plenty of time in a shortened summer, the demolition of the tile flooring had to begin during winter break, and will also continue during spring break. This means that for the rest of spring semester, the hallway floors will be bare concrete…the construction crews have removed tile and grinded off the glue in areas of the school, so safety and cleanliness is not an issue for students upon their return. There will be an aesthetic downgrade for the remainder of the semester, but this was the best situation in order to have all new flooring in for the start of the 2017-18 school year. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we go through this construction process together.

SPLOST Updates

Traffic Pattern Change-Please Read

Starting February 2, 2017 and continuing through the remainder of the school year, the Pope intersection with Hembree Rd will be altered thus creating changes for pedestrian traffic coming onto and leaving the Pope campus.

The sidewalk on the north side (Dorset) of the intersection will be closed to pedestrian traffic. All students coming from the Dorset area will need to cross the Pope entrance and walk up the sidewalk on the south side of the intersection.. Students should then cross the outbound/inbound lanes on the left side of the big stone sign.

SPLOST Construction is moving along nicely. We have created a website to document the progress as we build.

Will to Live Guest Speaker

The Pope High School Will to Live club is hosting a guest speaker for the community on suicide awareness. Due to construction at Pope, the venue will be at Hightower Trail Middle School.  


Pope WTL club will sponsor an evening seminar featuring John Trautwein on Monday, March 6th at 7pm in the Hightower Trail Middle School theater. John founded the Will To Live Foundation in memory of his 15-year old son, Will, who was a freshman at Northview HS when he died in 2010. John’s message is a Mission of HOPE, LOVE & THE WILL TO LIVE.  The Will to Live Foundation is dedicated to preventing teen suicide by improving the lives and the ‘Will To Live’ of teenagers through education and awareness of mental health and the silent killer “depression”, and encourages teens to recognize the love and hope that exist in each other.
The Will To Live Foundation's concept of "Life Teammates" illustrates to teens that it is alright to share fears and feelings, to reach out and help a friend in need, and not be afraid to say “Love Ya Man”. The Will To Live Foundation’s motto is “For the Kids, Through the Kids, By the Kids,” and offers hope and a positive message to combat the tragedy of teen suicide in America by bringing people together to help one another in a time of need.
Please join us in providing John a warm welcome to our east Cobb community. John is the author of “My Living Will: A Father’s Story of Loss & Hope,” and his book will be available for sale. For more information on the Will to Live Foundation, please visit http://will-to-live.org/.
