Classes begin Wednesday at Coweta schools

alt


With the 2014-15 term starting for local students on Wednesday, many parents and kids choose to familiarize themselves with bus schedules and other resources.

School orientation for Coweta schools will be Tuesday. During orientation, employees from the transportation department will be available to answer questions, and representatives from the school system’s after-school program will be available to register students for the program.

Teachers, however, will not be available for conferences during orientation day.

Orientation times

• Middle schools: 10 a.m. to noon.

• Elementary schools: Noon to 2 p.m.

• High schools: 2 to 4 p.m.

Bus schedules are available at “The Newnan Times-Herald” website, www.times-herald.com.

On the first day of school, officials encourage drivers to leave home early and expect traffic. Students riding the bus on the first day of school are advised to arrive at the designated bus stop no later than 6:45 a.m. each day for the first week of classes.

Regular morning pick-up times will become more predictable as routes are established in the new school year.

Bus pick-up sites have remained largely unchanged since last school year. Generally, if a home is on a street or cul-de-sac of two-tenths of a mile or less in length, students should wait for the bus on the nearest street corner.

If a subdivision street or other neighborhood street is longer than two-tenths of a mile, bus stops are generally one-tenth of a mile apart based on ridership.

If parents are unsure about pick-up sites for the school bus, or have other questions, they can call the Coweta School System transportation department at 770-254-2820.

Each school will determine and enforce its own dress code for students, with the authorized school official making sure the students are wearing the proper clothes.

Parents and students should refer to their school’s handbook for specific dress code.

Parents new to the area can register student(s) at the Coweta system’s Central Registration Office at 167 Werz Industrial Drive, located off Millard Farmer Industrial Boulevard in Newnan. Students already enrolled in a Coweta school, including a pre-kindergarten class in the 2013-2014 school year, do not need to register again.

Punctual and regular school attendance at all grade levels is important to the educational success of all children, and all parents are urged to make sure children begin class at the start of the new school year on Aug. 6.
