Orientation is Wednesday, Aug. 4

The Coweta County School System begins its new school year Thursday, Aug. 5.

Parents and students will be able to visit schools and meet teachers on Wednesday, Aug. 4, before the start of the new school year. Orientation will be held at separate times for Coweta’s middle and elementary schools, on the following schedule:

All middle schools: 10 a.m. to noon. Orientation for sixth grade students will be held at most middle schools from 10-11 a.m., while orientation for seventh and eighth grade students will beh held from 11 a.m to noon at most middle schools.

All elementary schools: Noon to 2 p.m.

Orientation provides parents and students an opportunity to find their classrooms and meet their teachers before the start of school. Please be aware that teachers will not be available for formal conferences during orientation.

High schools will hold various back-to-school events leading up to their Aug. 5 start. Parents should check school messages and websites for event times.

Newnan High School will hold separate orientation events for new ninth graders, who will temporarily attend classes at the Central Educational Center as NHS campus renovations continue. Orientation for grades 10-12 will be held at the main NHS campus on LaGrange Street.

Many schools will hold additional back-to-school functions beyond the Aug. 4 orientation times. School websites, linked at www.cowetaschools.net , will include updated information for these and other school-specific activities in the new year.

Representatives from the school system’s transportation department will be available at all schools during the Aug. 4 orientation and on the first day of school on Aug. 5 to provide information about bus schedules. School bus routes for the new school year will also be posted on the school system’s website before the start of school.

Parents who wish to enroll their elementary-age children in the school system’s tuition-based After School Program will also be able to do so on Aug 3-4 at their children’s schools. Representatives will be available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at each elementary school.

Parents who need to register their children for school can do so through the school system’s Central Registration Center. Parents whose children are not yet registered are urged to do so as early as possible by going to the online registration site, or by contacting the center at registrationcenter@cowetaschools.net .
