 Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is 24 questions. You may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. If you do not have access to the Internet, you can complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school.  The data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.

 Dismissal Procedures:

Dismissal changes and checkouts must be completed by 1:45 p.m.

Varner Families,
Changing your child's transportation must be done in writing or faxed to the front office (770-222-3777).  Adding students to ASP can be done over the phone.  Emailing or using Class DOJO is not permitted.  All changes need to be made by 1:45 pm.  No check outs will be permitted after that time. 
Thank you for following these procedures!! 

PLEASE NOTE:
Parents and/or guardians of 8 & under yellow tag students that do
not have permission to exit alone per the Safe Rider Form, must come to the bus door to receive their children.  We cannot have parents sitting in cars, out on their porches, or down the street in the distance waiting to receive them.  It is crucial that the bus driver and student(s) be able to clearly identify the adult ready to receive them at the bus stop.  If the parents and/or guardians do not come to the door for a clear identification, their 8 & under student(s) will be returned to the school upon completion of the route, and handed off to a staff member.  This does not apply to any 8 & under students that have been given parental permission to exit alone.  Those students are marked with a “black dot” on both sides of the yellow tag.
