Principal's Message


Good afternoon, Spartan Families, 

Parents/guardians, we are already planning for the summer and the next school year. The Cobb County School District is excited to again offer a summer opportunity to students needing to recover credits. This summer's HS Credit Recovery Summer School will again be offered at no cost to families. Students can take up to 1 course credit (Y) or two 0.5 course credits (A/B) during summer school. The flyers are attached below. 

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, such as Valentine’s Day, 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

We wanted to share some pictures from our College and Career Fair held on March 1 at CHS. There were over 70 colleges and businesses. Students were able to interact with our partners, ask questions, and get information. We want to thank Ms. Young and Ms. Diaz Brown for organizing this annual event for our students as well as the CHS Foundation. The CHS Foundation pays the salaries for Ms. Young and Ms. Diaz Brown. 

The county has updated the COVID guidelines and the information below is from our nurse, Nurse Cristelli:

 CCSD follows DPH guidance for infectious diseases. As of March 4TH, the COVID-19 guidance has been updated:


Upon reading this updated guidance you will see:

  • You can go back to your normal activities when, for at least 24 hours, both are true:
    • Your symptoms are getting better overall, and
    • You have not had a fever (and are not using fever-reducing medication).
  • When you go back to your normal activities, take added precaution over the next 5 days, such as taking additional steps for cleaner airhygiene, masksphysical distancing, and/or testing when you will be around other people indoors.

This means we no longer have the 5-day REQUIRED STAY AT HOME (ISOLATION) guidance. Covid now falls under the regular 24-hour guidance that most other infectious respiratory diseases do.
