Metal Detector Installation

Macon County School System strives to be proactive when it comes to school safety. The Macon County Board of Education is pleased to announce the procurement of specialized metal detectors for immediate placement across all campuses. With the current, enhanced concern of our children's education and safety, the need for metal detectors in the Macon County School System was identified. Metal detectors will be placed at the major entryways into the buildings as a proactive step to discourage individuals from bringing weapons on campus.

Through research, Garrett Metal Detectors were identified as the best choice for the needs of Macon County Schools. These systems include walk though units that may be easily moved between locations, as well as, handheld units. The Macon County Board of Education Police and other staff members, will be undergoing specialized training in the use of these detectors. Macon County strives to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for the future leaders of our community. We are confident that these devices will enhance the quality of our safe learning environment.

In the coming weeks, each school will begin the installation of the metal detector units. If you have any questions, please contact your student’s principal or school resource officer.

 



Bus Drivers Needed

There is no more important position in our school system than our school bus drivers. This job is much more than just getting the bus to school on time. Great school bus drivers also have a pocket full of tissues for runny noses, a bushel full of smiles for kids who are having bad days and hold an undying commitment to the safe and secure travel of the most precious cargo in the world. Our school bus drivers are responsible for picking up and delivering several hundred children during a normal shift — on time and safely. They are responsible for following all traffic and company regulations to the letter, and must remain cool, calm and collected in all situations. Our school bus drivers also complete daily pre- and post-shift vehicle inspection activities to ensure a safe journey for our riders. 

Please contact the Bus Shop at 478-472-8188 Ext. 2021 for more information.


Physical Addresses Need for New Bus Routes

Macon County School System is in the process of restructuring the bus routes.  This process will enable our students to arrive to school in a more safely, accurate and timely manner.  In order for our school district to accomplish these goals, we need your assistance.

According to state guidelines, the school buses will only be able to pick up those students who have a residential address on file with the school system.  If your family’s mailing address is listed under a P.
