Parent Resource Page

We know that you only want the best for your child. Barber Middle School would like to provide you access to as many resources as possible to help your child meet with success during their middle school years.  We understand the daunting task of being a middle school parent, so we offer the following resources to help you provide the help your child needs to conquer their middle school obstacles.

NEW CLINIC PARKING PROCEDURES
Parents, please note that the curb alongside the entire front of the school is marked with a red curb indicating it is a "NO PARKING" zone for Fire/Emergency vehicles only. The Cobb County Police Department has recently visited the school and issued tickets for cars parked in the fire lane. The parking area for parents to visit the clinic is still in front of the building, but on the LEFT-hand side of the front drive....NOT along the red curb. Our principal, Mrs. Williams, wanted to make sure you all are aware that this is a matter that is being monitored by the Cobb County Police Department, and she has no control over their involvement. They are adamant about ticketing cars that are parked in the fire lane.
