Carpool Procedures

Dear Shallowford Falls Parents,

As our enrollment continues to increase and more and more students are coming from outside of our Shallowford district, we would like to review the car rider procedures.

  1. Carpool begins at 7:20.
  2. Students will only be unloaded at the curb.
  3. Pull all the way to the top of the curb to begin unloading.
  4. Your child should be ready to get out of the car with book bag in hand.
  5. Do not wait for an adult to open the car door for you.
  6. Car pool ends at 7:50, when the tardy bell rings.

If you arrive after 7:50, you must park and walk your student in.

  1. Park in a designated parking spot.
  2. Escort your child into the office and sign them in.
  3. Do not send students into the building unattended.

Carpool does back up onto Shallowford Road. We anticipate this will increase this year as our enrollment is up. While we are working with our local CCSD police to make carpool run smoother, it is always the best option to put your child on the bus. They will never be late if they ride the school bus.

Over the summer, the Department of Transportation created a new traffic pattern on SFES property to help alleviate the congestion on Shallowford Road during the morning and afternoon carpool.

All cars will now drive past the left turn that leads to the carpool drop-off point, through a curbed turn-around by the back entrance to the parking lot where the buses come in, and then back out, making a right turn to the normal drop off point. Students will only be dropped off at the curb in front of the school.

If you are parking, and walking your child in, you MUST stay in the carpool line and access the curbed turn-around, prior to parking.


This new traffic pattern will take some time to get used to. Please be patient. We will have our Dads Group and SFES staff available to assist with the flow of traffic the first few days of school.

Mrs. Long & Mrs. Spiva

 


Good News: Office 365 for all students

All CCSD students (K-12) will have access to the Office 365 digital tools suite unless a parent previously opted out last school year.  If a parent wants to confirm student access and/or ascertain their student’s Office 365 username, they can locate this information via ParentVUE (https://parentvue.cobbk12.org/).

Communication with Parents will be as follows:

  1. The “All Parents.pdf” message will be sent to parents who previously consented or provided no response to the consent emails last school year. See attachment below.
  2. The “Opt-Out Parents.pdf” message will be sent to the small number of parents who previously opted out last school year, giving them information on how to opt-in. See attachment below.
  3. Parents will no longer receive monthly emails requesting they provide a consent option.
  4. Schools will no longer need to send the consent email to their parents.

Once again, parents can view their students’ access, view their students’ account login information, and view instructions on how to use Office 365 through ParentVUE (https://parentvue.cobbk12.org/)
