Parking Lot Safety

Safety of our students is a high priority. There have been some concerns about dismissal, traffic flow and students in the upper parking lot.

Safety of our students is a high priority at Mabry Middle School. There have been some concerns about dismissal, traffic flow and students in the upper parking lot.

To insure student safety, please follow the procedures outlined below:

• Parents may park in the upper parking lot until 4:00. After this time, the upper parking lot will become a one-way, direction out only egress to ensure greater safety of students walking in the parking lot in route to their parents’ car. No other cars will be allowed in at that time.

• After 4:00, parents must proceed to the pick-up line that goes down the turn-around to pick up their students in front of the building. This increases the number of cars that can queue in the drive of the school, alleviating traffic on Jims Road.

*Please do not double park in any parking area. • Please proceed to the stop sign to pick up your student and do not load before the cross walk in front of the school. This will eliminate cars passing in the pick-up line.

• Students may only load in front of the school in the designated pick-up line. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.


Mabry Bring Your Own Device:

Please ask your student for the parent information and form for our BYOD program. Parent and student forms are due February 13th and are to be returned to the homeroom teacher. BYOD will begin after March1, 2013. Download form here: Mabry BYOD Form

Mabry Receives the designation of No Place for Hate!

Mabry Middle School is the first middle school in Cobb County to receive the designation of No Place for Hate. Anti-Defamation League's Southeast Region, presented the banner and praised Mabry's administration, faculty and students for making acceptance an everyday message at the Northeast Cobb school.

Bus Pass Policy:

Students will no longer be allowed to ride home on a different bus than assigned. This policy change is due to the high volume of riders this year. Students will be permitted to ride their assigned bus and get off at another stop provided they have a note from their parent and a pass from the office. This bus pass may be filled out if your child needs to ride the same bus, but get off at a different stop. Any other exceptions to this rule must be approved by the Cobb County Transportation Department and school administration. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to make sure all of our students arrive home safely. Bus Pass Form.

Be There Campaign:
Cobb County has teamed up with thirteen other metropolitan school districts to promote the Be There campaign sponsored by WSB-TV.

The purpose of this campaign is to promote parent involvement in school. Studies have shown that when you connect with your child everyday, your child benefits for life. When he or she knows you care and are concerned about education, the following occurs:

  • Achievement in school improves; students earn higher grades and test scores and enroll in higher-level programs
  • Children want to go to school
  • Courses are passes, credits earned and students are promoted to the next grade
  • Self-confidence improves

To learn more about the Be There campaign, please visit their site:
