Back to School: Orientation

by Celia Shortt

If a child is starting at a new school because he or she is new to Coweta County or from advancing to a new grade level, there is some important information about school orientation parents should know.

Parents and students can visit school on Monday, Aug. 5, the day before classes start. Teachers may be at the school, but will not be available for informal conferences.

Orientation times on Monday, Aug. 5: 

Middle Schools: 10 a.m. to noon (all middle schools) 

Elementary Schools: noon to 2 p.m. (all elementary schools). 

High Schools: 3 to 5 p.m. (all high schools)

Representatives from the school system’s transportation department will be at orientation to answer any questions about bus schedules. Also there, will be representatives from the after-school program. 

Parents who want to sign up their children for the tuition-based after school program can do so at that time. That program does run on a space-available basis.
