Late Check-in Guidelines - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
The first exam periods on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (May 21 - 23) are also lunch periods. During lunch periods, students who have lunch will remain in the cafeteria and will use the time to study for final exams.
Your student may arrive late rather than attend during his/her lunch period. If your student is arriving late on one of the half-day final exam days, he/she must arrive by 10:35 am. Students arriving late will remain in the cafeteria until it is time to move to the 10:40 am exam. Students riding in carpool must enter through the cafeteria doors on the north side of the building (facing Kings Ridge). Student drivers must enter through the cafeteria doors. Do not drop your student off at the front doors as they will be directed to the cafeteria side entrance. Students cannot be in the academic halls during testing.

Missed Exams
Missed Senior Exams Due to AP Testing:
Seniors who missed a Final Exam due to a conflict with AP Exams can arrange with their teacher to make up the exam during the Final Exam window. If arrangements are not made, the student should contact the 12th Grade Administrator, Ms. Beard at   beardj@fultonschools.org  to arrange to make up the exam before or after school from Friday, May 17 until Tuesday, May 21.

Missed Exams Due to Illness:
Students are expected to be present and on time on all testing days. If a student must miss a final exam due to illness, the parent/guardian must call the Attendance Office on the day of the absence in order for the student to take his/her exam on the make-up days. If the Attendance Office is not alerted, the absence will be considered unexcused.

Pre-approved Absences:
All other missed exams must receive prior approval by the student's grade-level administrator. To obtain approval the parent/guardian should email the administrator by Monday, May 13. Please include the date(s) to be missed, the subject name(s), the teacher name(s), and reason for the missed exam.

Makeup exams will take place in the Student Center and will occur on: Friday, May 24, 2019 - 8:00 am - 3:00 pm for underclassmen. Seniors should contact  beardj@fultonschools.org

Checking Students Out
Students will not be allowed to check out while exams are in progress. Classrooms cannot be disturbed, and students will not be allowed in the academic halls. For a student to check out prior to the end of the day (during non-exam times), please have your student bring a note to the Attendance Office at the beginning of the school day. Due to the volume, the Attendance Office cannot accept emails or phone calls at check-out time.

Take the time to show you care about your mental health and the mental health of others.

FCS Partners with Purposity
Connecting students in need
In Fulton County we are always looking to join forces with other partners and organizations who will help us make a bigger impact in the lives of the community we serve. With this vision in mind, we are excited to introduce our newest partner, Purposity, an Atlanta-based organization that will connect Fulton students in need with people in the community that can help. This is done through a mobile app designed to make it easy for neighbors to help neighbors.

By signing up, generous donors are sent a weekly notification with a specific need for a specific student. It might be a winter jacket for a middle schooler or household essentials for a high school family that lost its home in a fire. Users decide if they want to help and in just a few clicks on their phone, the need is met. They know exactly who they are helping and why. It's the simplest way to make an impact locally. 

The app is available in the App Store, on Google Play, or by going to www.purposity.com .
