Potential Inclement Weather

With the impending threat of inclement weather this weekend, it is important that parents and students are informed about the potential actions that could be taken if our area is affected. Any school closure or delay will be communicated using SchoolMessenger, social media, the GCPS website, and local news outlets.

School Cancellation Option:
If the district cancels school due to inclement weather, the scheduled student/teacher holidays (February 15, March 29 in that order) will become regular school days for teachers and students.

Digital Learning Day Option:
In the event that a school closure is necessary, the district could opt to hold a Digital Learning Day rather than using a snow make-up day. If the decision is made to hold a Digital Learning Day, the school and district processes for online learning will go into effect. Assignments for high school students will be posted via eClass by 9:00 am. Students must complete assignments, which will also account for their attendance at school that day.

Delayed Start Option:
If inclement weather requires the opening of school to be delayed, the regular bus service and school start times will be delayed by the stated amount of time. For instance, for a 2-hour delay, students’ day would begin at 9:05; a 3 hour delay would put the school start time at 10:05. Schools would follow the regularly scheduled release times.

The Best Option:
We do not experience inclement weather that impacts school, and school goes on as normal!

Titans Girls Basketball - Strong Start with New Coach!
Check out the article from the GDP on the hot start by our girl’s basketball team. They are off to a 6-3 start while the boys are 7-2. Big games tonight vs. Milton and Region play again next week vs. Duluth on Tuesday and at Mill Creek on Friday.
Parents please refrain from dropping off students on Old Norcross Rd and/or Riverside Pkwy. Students are running between cars through the parking lot creating an unsafe situation for our students. Instead, utilize our carpool lane in our Riverside Parkway entrance.

The Georgia Parent Survey is now available. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. Parents that do not have access to the Internet can contact Christy Gray or Josh Allen at Discovery to schedule a date/time to complete the survey at the school. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.
