Parents: A couple of reminders for you: First, please do not drop your children off at EES before 7:00. We have had a couple of our elementary students that have been down on the sidewalk before an adult arrives for supervision. 7:00 is when we will be out and on the sidewalk to greet students and get them to the gym. Secondly, Health check forms were sent home from DPH in your open house packets. If you wish for their child to participate, please have them turned in by 08/16/21.
Reminder: Chick-fil-A Mobile Unit is coming to Franklin starting TODAY! Located in downtown Franklin next to the fire station from 11AM-2PM.
Thank you parents today for your help during dismissal. You did a great job of ensuring buses had the space needed to get into the parking lot. We appreciate your patience as we got car riders loaded. It will get faster and more efficient as we go. We had a great day at school. We loved having our student back in the building with us. One last thing if you are planning to use the after school program next week you need to contact the office, get signed up and pay your fee. Students can not stay unless they are signed up and payment is made by Friday of this week. Thank you have a great evening.
Good morning Parents We are so excited about the start of school tomorrow. Just a couple of reminders before we begin. Drop off and pick up are in the back of the building. Car riders may begin to drop off at 7:05 in the morning. Buses will be taking middle and high students in the morning to HCMS and HCHS if you need transportation. Pre-K and Kinder parents may walk their child in to the building tomorrow. Everyone else will be in the gym. Teachers will be there to meet and greet you there. There will be someone in the office in the morning if you have medication, documents, or proof of residence to turn in to the office. In the afternoon, dismissal will begin at 2:45. Bus riders will dismiss first, please do not block the entrance into the back pick up lanes, buses will have to come through and then cars can pull in behind buses. Remember middle and high students will not be brought to EES in the afternoon. We are looking forward to a great first day and a great school year. Please contact the school if you have any questions. MBrooks
Monday August 2nd is Open House! Open house will begin at 10:00am and will continue until 6:00pm. You will begin your open house time in the gym. You will check in with Mrs. Pam. After check in you will then be able to walk to your child’s classroom. Below is a list of things you will need to be prepared to do at open house. Beginning of the year paperwork completed through our online platform. https://ees.heard.k12.ga.us/ If you do not have access to good internet, you can complete forms here at the school when you arrive. Proof of residence (This should be a bill, such as a utility bill, that is in your name.) If you rent or lease and do not have a utility bill in your name, you need to bring a utility bill from your landlord with the landlord’s name, the address you are providing as proof of your residence, and also a notarized letter from the landlord confirming you live at the address given. If you are living with a relative, the same procedure applies. Bring any updated medical forms and medications that need to be kept in the clinic for your child. Meet your child’s teacher Pick up your child’s student folder from the teacher.
EES families First, thank you for your patience as we work through the kinks with our online registration process. We have a couple of pieces that we want to clear up. First, it does not matter which school webpage you go to to access the registration links. Once you are in and completing the forms, you will be able to add all of your children no matter which schools they are attending. You only have to complete the registration forms one time for your family. Second, Pre K students are required to complete these registration forms in addition to the Pre K specific forms that you have already completed. Last, if you are applying for the After School Program (ASP), please make sure you complete the ASP Registration(this will only be done one time) and then complete the ASP Weekly Registration to indicate the days your child will be attending ASP. Again, thank you for your patience. Continue to reach out if you have further questions.

https://georgiansforbroadband.com/take-action/ This is the link needed to request broadband access.
Dear Fellow Georgians: With your help, the Georgia Broadband Opportunity Act (HB 244) passed in July and was signed into law by Gov. Kemp in August. That bill could not have been passed without your help. HB 244 gave the Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC) the responsibility to set the rates that broadband service providers are charged to attach to electric membership cooperative utility poles. CLICK HERE TO TELL THEM YOU NEED BROADBAND ACCESS Broadband service providers attach to utility poles in order to bring broadband access to rural Georgians. Currently, the EMCs are charging nearly triple what companies like Georgia Power and AT&T are charging to attach to their poles. These excessive attachment costs are a barrier for broadband providers to be able to invest in rural communities that so desperately need broadband access. This week, the Georgia Public Service Commission will begin to decide those rates which will determine the speed and reality at which broadband is expanded into Georgia’s rural communities! We NEED YOU to tell the Georgia Public Service Commissioners how badly you need reliable broadband access and to vote for reasonable, cost-based rates to attach to EMC owned poles. CLICK HERE TO TELL THEM YOU NEED BROADBAND ACCESS Thank you for your help, we’ll be in touch soon with more updates. The Georgians for Broadband Team
