Student H: Drives to be Read Only

Students, starting January of 2020, your H: drive (which is where you save to your number) will be set to Read-Only. You will still have access to your H: drive until July 2020 but you will not be able to save data to it. You can save to OneDrive instead, so your files will be cloud-based and accessible from anywhere.  If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Zonin in the Learning Commons.

Pope High School - Space Mission

The STEM 9th and 10th grade math class has been working on a mission…literally.  They have just completed a week long, intensive process, in which we were asked to come up with three ideas that a sensor could measure – providing valuable data we, and others, could use in class this year (based in our year-long semester project).  What makes this so cool  is that this data will be collected ON the International Space Station.  The students will have their Quest CubeSat launching February 7, 2020 on the Sierra Nevada Dream Chaser spaceplane, flown to the International Space Station where it will be for 4-6 weeks, and then will return to Earth on the SpaceX Dragon Capsule 20 Mission sometime in April 2020.  They are the only high school from Georgia, and one of two high schools in the country to be on this mission (the other is from Virginia).  We are so proud of these students on a once in a lifetime opportunity to have data collected from space!

Check Out Policy

Early check out from school is discouraged. Students and parents should try to arrange medical and other appointments after school hours. A parent, guardian, or administrator must grant permission to check out in every case. Under non-emergency circumstances, the parent should send a note which MUST be turned in before 11:30 am.  Last minute appointments do happen; however, please call PPO before 11:30 am.  If your student needs to leave school after 11:30 am and they have not turned in a note that morning, you will need to come to PPO and check them out personally; however, we will not be able to accommodate any check out after 6th period without a previously submitted note. During the weeks of EOC and AP testing PPO will NOT take any phone calls. If a student is driving or walking, a parent must be contacted.   If the student leaves without confirmation of the early dismissal, it will be treated as a class cut (truancy) and disciplinary action will be taken.  Contact Pupil Personnel @ 770 578-7908 ext. 051.
