Emergency Alert TEST

Today at 5PM we will test our Parent Alert

We hope we never have to use this other than an annual test. We will NEVER do a test during school hours. If an Emergency Alert is sent during school hours, it will say “EMERGENCY” and it will be an actual emergency, and you will receive information and instructions.

Today’s TEST ALERT will read:

“This is a TEST of our EMERGENCY ALERT. No action is necessary. Thank you.”

If you do not receive today’s alert, please check your settings in ParentWeb. You may have to reset your selection.

Please be advised of the following from our alert system:

Selecting the Emergency option will override Family Individual Preferences.

Parents who have replied “STOP” to a text sent by the school have blocked messages with their cell provider and will not receive texts.

Please note that regular Parent Alerts are sent with reminders, school closings, inclement weather, and traffic advisories that may be time sensitive and get buried in email. We all check our texts faster than email 🙂

School Closed 1/29/2019

School Systems are already starting to close, and Governor Kemp has closed all government offices for tomorrow.

The weather should not be an issue until temps falling to freezing by early to mid-afternoon, which could cause problems on some roads, bridges and overpasses.  We do NOT want a repeat of 2014 where some students and faculty were stranded at school. So in the interest of safety, we will close tomorrow.

With a hard freeze overnight, lows by sunrise Wednesday around 22, any moisture left-over will be ice. We will continue to monitor conditions for Wednesday morning.

As always, if you hear Cobb County Schools close, we will automatically close. We will also close if any 2 of the following close: Bartow, Cherokee, Fulton, or Paulding. If conditions in your area are not safe to drive, and we are not closed, any absences will be excused.


Weather for 1/29/2019

We are monitoring the weather situation for Tuesday, and remainder of the week. We will notify you should we close school.

Per our closing procedures, we automatically close whenever Cobb closes, or whenever 2 of the following close: Bartow, Cherokee, Fulton, or Paulding.

As always, should conditions where you live make travel unsafe, please stay safe, as absences for weather conditions are excused.

No School 12/10/2018

In the interest of the safety of our faculty and staff, there will be no school tomorrow…

  • Because of the high likelihood of black ice tomorrow, 12/11/2018, and
  • We have families traveling from 6 counties which will be impacted at various levels, combined with
  • It is not expected to get above freezing before 10AM at the earliest, making it likely that it will be 11AM before travel is safe

Please be safe and we will see you Wednesday.

Also… for future reference, remember that we always close if Cobb County closes, and we also close if any 2 of Bartow, Cherokee, Fulton, or Paulding close. However, because of our unique situation with students coming from various counties, we have a larger burden of safety than judging based on one county alone, so we may cancel before they do.

Flooding Issues for 11/13/2018

We are monitoring the weather conditions and will keep you updated. At this time, there are no indications we will not be able to have school tomorrow, should that change, we will let you know.

As always, if conditions near your house, flooding, power outages, electrical lines down, etc…, make it dangerous, please stay home, the absence will be excused. We want everyone to be safe!

Also, per our closing procedures, we will automatically be closed whenever Cobb closes, or whenever 2 of the following close: Bartow, Cherokee, Fulton, or Paulding.

Stay dry! 🙂

School Closed 1/19/2018

Per our closing procedures, we close whenever Cobb closes, or whenever 2 of the following close: Bartow, Cherokee, Fulton, or Paulding.

We were in the process of deciding based on teacher and family issues with conditions, as well as those having flu.  However, Paulding and Bartow closed.  So we closed based on our procedures. Then Cobb, Cherokee, and Fulton called it too.

Stay warm, and we’ll see you Monday!

School Closed 1/18/2018

It’s only 18°F (-7.8°C) right now and not predicted to get above freezing until noon tomorrow with single digit to sub-zero wind chills. It is highly unlikely we will see enough sublimation (evaporation without melting) to make road conditions safe, AND it will be terribly cold.

Out if concern for the safety of students, families, and staff, we will not be having school tomorrow. STAY WARM!
