Coronavirus/COVID-19 Communications

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we navigate the challenges of keeping our students, faculty, and staff as safe and healthy as possible during this unusual time. Please be sure to add info@schenck.org and jclark@schenck.org to your contacts and periodically check your email spam filter, so that you don't miss any important communications from the School. In an effort to keep parents informed, all email communications from the School about the coronavirus and/or distance learning will be linked here. We will update this list as communications are sent.

For the most up-to-date information about the coronavirus and COVID-19, please check the CDC and the Georgia Department of Public Health websites.

Canceled - Outplacement Meeting for Parents of Students Attending Public Schools

The March 27 outplacement meeting has been canceled and will be rescheduled at a later date.

If your child is outplacing, please mark your calendar for a meeting for parents of students planning to enroll in public schools on Friday, March 27, from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in the Dee and David Schenck Conference Room. This meeting is identical to the one held on Thursday, February 27, and there is no need to attend both. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Outplacement Director Janet Street, so we can arrange for parking.

Upcoming Construction Projects on I-285 and Georgia 400

As you may know, the Georgia Department of Transportation has two major projects planned or ongoing on I-285 and SR 400. The "Transform I-285/SR 400" project includes improvements to the major interchange connecting the two roadways and is already under way, while the "Georgia 400 Express Lanes" project includes the construction of toll lanes and is planned to start in 2021. Fulton County Schools shared this message about the projects with their stakeholders, and we thought it might be informative for our parents as well. You can also read about the planned improvements in this article from the Sandy Springs Reporter. If these projects impact your commute, please consider attending one of the community information sessions.

Help Young Lungs Breathe Easier

We know it is hot, but please remember that we have a no-idling policy for vehicles in carpool. Why should you support the no-idling effort?

  • Vehicle exhaust is harmful to the health of students, teachers, and parents, if they breathe in unhealthy fumes as they enter and exit the School.
  • Idling pollutes the air.
  • It is more fuel-efficient to turn your engine off if you are going to be sitting for more than 30 seconds.

Thank you for turning off your car while waiting to pick up your children. We appreciate your cooperation!
