School Hours & Important Transportation Info
8:50 AM - 4:15 PM
1.  The building opens
to students at 7:50 AM.  There is no supervision   
     available before
this time.  Please help us keep our students safe by
     dropping off AFTER 7:50 AM each morning!

2.  It is highly recommended that students arrive early (before 8:50) only if
     they have a specific reason (appointment with teacher, intramurals, etc.).
3.  All car-riders should be off campus by 4:30 each day.
4.  Please send a note in with your student if an early check-out is required or
     you are making any transportation changes for the day other than your
     normal arrangements.
5.  Early dismissals are accepted until 3:45 pm. If you arrive to check out
     your student AFTER 3:45 pm, please accept our apologies but we will not
     be able to call into the classroom.  Students will be dismissed at the
     normal 4:15 pm dismissal time.
6.  All last-minute transportation changes must be completed by 3:45 pm to
     ensure we have adequate time to communicate this with your student.  For
     safety reasons, no transportation changes will be announced at the end of
     the day.

Georgia Parent Survey
 As you may be aware, all schools in Georgia participate in School Climate Surveys each school year.  This suite of surveys includes student surveys, staff surveys, and parent surveys which are combined together to calculate Durham’s School Climate Star Rating on the state of Georgia’s College and Career Ready Performance Index.  The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Individual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. 

To access the survey, please go to:
