School Council Parent Nomination Notice
The School Council is an advisory board that was established at Pope in 2010 in compliance with Georgia State Law (OCGA §§ 20-2-85 and 20-2-86).  The school council provides advice and recommendations to the principal on school matters.  It is required that four Pope parents serve on the council (with staggered two year terms) and are nominated and elected by parents of Pope HS students.  At least two of the four parents must be business persons in the community. A parent may serve more than one term but not consecutively. We will need to fill two parent vacancy council seats this election.  
Nominations will be accepted through September, 1st.  Elections will be held the week of September, 4th concluding on Friday, September, 8th at the PPO/Attendance office.  Ballots and a ballot box will be available the week of September 4th for parent voting at PPO.    
Nomination forms and by-laws are available on the school website under organizations->school council.

August 21st Eclipse Plan
Please see the information linked below for our school plan regarding the eclipse on August 21st.
Eclipse Plan and Information

We realize that the solar eclipse is a truly unique event and many of you may be planning to observe the eclipse as a family.  If your student will be checking out early on Monday, August, 21st, we would greatly appreciate you sending in a note by Friday, August, 18th so that we may verify the note ahead of time.  If you are planning on checking your student out, please do so before 1:30pm. This will make the checkout process run more efficiently on the Monday, August 21st.  

The eclipse glasses that we have are for students who will be at school observing the event.  The glasses were purchased by vendors approved by the American Astronomical Society as are the companies that produced the glasses (American Paper Optics and Rainbow Symphony).  All the glasses have the ISO approved stamp and are ISO approved #12312-2.
