Principal's Message

Good afternoon, Spartan Families, 

Please be advised that End of Course (EOC) testing will begin Wednesday, April 24th for students enrolled in the following courses: Algebra I, American Literature, Biology or US History. 
Students will take the EOC assessments following the schedule below. Please ensure that your student arrives on time to school during the administration window.  During the assessment date(s) for each course, students must bring their charged laptop and a charger to school. They will be using their CCSD issued laptop for testing. Additionally, cell phones, smart watches, and other electronic devices are not permitted during testing. Teachers will have a plan for collecting devices to ensure they do not cause an invalidation. To ensure all CCSD issued devices have all of the proper updates, all students will be required to bring their charged devices and chargers on Monday, April 22nd so that End of Course teachers can ensure devices are updated and students have access to the testing application required for testing. If you have questions, please contact Antwane.Nelson@cobbk12.org.

The Campbell End of Year Schedule in calendar form is in the attachment below. Please review it so that you are updated about the events for these last few weeks of school. 

Parents, please note that when coming to the office to check out your student or communicate with the front office staff, there is a new doorbell system.  A picture ID must be shown and there are signs to assist you. 

Message from the Attendance Office 

Excused vs. Unexcused Absences: Students are required to obtain a pass from their teacher and report to the school nurse if they are feeling ill during the instructional day.  The school nurse will contact the parent if it is determined the student should go home for the day. These absences are considered excused and coded AEC.  If a student calls/texts a parent for pick up and does not report to the clinic first, the absence from class(es) is unexcused. Students will not have the option to visit the clinic for the nurse to assess after the parent has arrived and have the absence excused.


On special occasions, all early checkouts will require a doctor’s excuse to have the absence coded excused. We encourage all students to remain in school for the full day unless they are not feeling well. We want to limit early checkouts and maximize instructional time.

 Parents are reminded that students should not be dropped off before 7:30 AM unless it has been requested by a teacher or coach and they will remain with that adult. Students are also expected to leave the building no later than 4 PM unless they are under the supervision of a teacher or coach. 

Best regards,
Dr. Watkins
