Urgent Messages

Dear Macon County Parents and Families,

The month of November is Family Engagement Month. I would like to take this time to thank each and every one of you for your support of the Macon County School System. We recognize that we cannot educate our students without your help and input. Parents are a valuable and irreplaceable resource as we strive to educate our children. In Macon County, we are working hard to provide a viable and rigorous curriculum. We are training our teachers to work with and to reach students on all levels so that all students will be college and career ready.

We will plan several activities during the month of November to promote Family Engagement. These events will be placed on the district and school websites. Thursday, November 15, 2018 is National Parent Involvement Day. To celebrate the contributions of all of our parents, we are planning a “Parent Engagement Night” at the Middle School/High School cafeteria at 6:00. We hope you will join us. To find ways to become engaged in your child’s school, you can contact Ms. Verneda Johnson, District Parent Engagement Coordinator or you can visit the Georgia Department of Education website at http://www.gadoe.org/Shool-Improvement/Federal-Programs/Partnerships/Pages/Parent-Engagement-Program-For-Parents-Link.aspx. We also have Parent Resource Centers in each school to provide our parents with information.

Family Engagement is a component that must be in place for the students to be successful. We are constantly looking for ways to involve you, the parents and families. We want to work with our community organization and ministerial groups to form strong connections with our parents. We encourage you to attend the district and school meetings that allow you, as parents, the opportunity to give input in our many programs.

On behalf of the School Board Members and our faculty and staff, I want to personally thank you for your trust in allowing us to join you in educating the children of Macon County. Thank you for your continued support and for the very important role that you play in your child(ren)’s education.

Sincerely,

Marc F. Maynor

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.
