If we do, we will receive $500 back from Cobb Foundation
for instructional supplies at Nickajack.


Each grade level will have a special Bucket located
in the Car Rider/Cafeteria Lobby to collect coins, paper money, and checks.

Which grade level will receive the
most money in their bucket?
This grade level will receive a special treat
from Mrs. Lloyd.

Each day will we give an update as to which grade level is in first & second place.

We want to make sure your student is picked up or taken home from school in the afternoon in the most safe & orderly way possible.

Therefore, Changes in Transportation will no longer be accepted over the phone

We ask that parents make all transportation arrangements clear before your student leaves for school in the morning. Parents may place a notice of change in the student’s folder, or write in their agendas prior to the start of school.

If a transportation change is necessary after the start of the school day, the Changes must be made in writing & submitted to office personnel before 1:30 pm.

You may also fax the change to 678-842-5832 but please call to verify that it is received by office personnel. 
1. All written changes must include the student name(s), teacher’s name(s), dates the change is effective, & the new mode of transportation.
2. Parent contact information and signature is required.

Please do not send dismissal messages via email to the teachers.    

Thank you for your patience as
we finish our Faculty & Staff page.
