Due to the current state of COVID-19 across the country and the Governor’s directive all public K-12 schools finished the school year with Digital Learning Days, therefore the 8th grade field trip which was planned was cancelled.  Each student that was planning on attending the trip paid $10.  We are offering a few options concerning the $10 refund.

If you are requesting a refund by check we will need to know the name of the student, a phone number, the name of the person the check should be made out to, and the address where it should be sent.
If we do not hear back from you by June 8th the $10 will be considered a donation to our 8th grade fund.
Any questions please contact Missy Edwards 770-531-9457 ext. 7145

Dear Parent/Guardian: 

Your child is currently enrolled in one or more high school credit courses. You have the right to accept or to decline the Carnegie unit and grade earned in these courses.  If your child does not pass a course, no credit is earned for that particular course.  For any failed Carnegie class, an automatic decline is registered.  

Should you decide to accept the credit, your child will earn Carnegie credit to be applied toward his/her high school graduation requirements.  The grade earned in this course will also count toward the high school Grade Point Average (GPA).

Should you decide to decline the credit for this course, your child would need to take this course or its equivalent again during the 9th Grade school year or when most appropriate for your child’s course sequence.  Please note, there is no guarantee that the particular course your child wants to take is available at the high school each school year.  Courses offered are determined by sufficient enrollment to fill the class.

It is important to remember that your decision is FINAL after the tenth day of the next school year.  No changes may be made after the tenth day.

Please indicate your preference for the Carnegie classes in which your child is enrolled in the FY20 East Hall Middle School Carnegie Unit Accept/Decline Form linked here.

****Spanish****

Si no presenta este formulario de preferencia, se acreditará el crédito en la transcripción de su hijo. 

 

Estimado Padre / Tutor:

Su hijo está actualmente inscrito en uno o más cursos de crédito de la escuela secundaria. Tiene derecho a aceptar o rechazar la unidad Carnegie y la calificación obtenida en estos cursos. Si su hijo no aprueba un curso, no se obtiene crédito por ese curso en particular. Para cualquier clase de Carnegie reprobada, se registra un rechazo automático.

 

Si decide aceptar el crédito, su hijo obtendrá el crédito Carnegie que se aplicará a los requisitos de graduación de la escuela secundaria. La calificación obtenida en este curso también contará para el Promedio de calificaciones (GPA) de la escuela secundaria.

 

Si decide rechazar el crédito para este curso, su hijo deberá tomar este curso o su equivalente nuevamente durante el año escolar del noveno grado o cuando sea más apropiado para la secuencia del curso de su hijo. Tenga en cuenta que no hay garantía de que el curso particular que su hijo quiera tomar esté disponible en la escuela secundaria cada año escolar. Los cursos ofrecidos están determinados por la inscripción suficiente para completar la clase.

 

Es importante recordar que su decisión es FINAL después del décimo día del próximo año escolar. No se pueden realizar cambios después del décimo día.

 

Indique su preferencia por las clases de Carnegie en las que su hijo está inscrito en el formulario de aceptación / rechazo de la Unidad Carnegie de la Escuela Intermedia del Condado de Hall FY20 vinculado aquí:

As we come to the close to another week, I reflect back on the earlier part of the week when students had to turn in their chromebook computers.  I was standing at my post, one  I took serious, because I wanted the students to be the first person from the school they saw.  With my mask and gloves on,  I thought, is this the way we must live?  So many cautions, so many changes and so many uncertainties that continue to stare us in the face on a daily basis.

But what warmed my heart was seeing the reactions in each car as they passed me to get in line.  I saw excitement, I saw gratitude, I saw bright eyes, and I saw love.  Each student that passed me had a special wave and a special look that I will never forget.

Then to see the teachers fight to stand back and not run up to the car to give a big hug was humbling each day.  Student wanting to get out of the car to great their favorite teacher and only being able to wave at them.  It is easy to tell that not only do the teachers miss their students, but the students miss  their teachers as well.  But guess what, my staff and I miss each one of the “Breadcrumbs” as much as the teachers do.  “Breadcrumbs” is one of the nicknames I have for them.

But  then I wonder, is this how we shall now live?  This pandemic has changed the way we all conduct ourselves in every thing we do.  It has taken the personality out of socializing.  It has put fear in our thoughts before we make a decision to action.  It has taken the breath out of a laugh or a smile.  It has taken the gentleness from a handshake and the compassion from a hug.

But one thing it has done and not many are talking about it, is that it has made us understand what it means to care about each other, all over again.

I miss my Breadcrumbs!

Have a great SUMMER and be SAFE!
