Per our Student Handbook, we cannot take transportation changes through email, fax or the phone. All changes must be in writing. When a parent emails a transportation change to you, please let them know that we cannot accept it. If there is an emergency, we will try and work with the parent but emailing a change cannot be something that is done on a regular basis.
ATTENTION: CAR RIDERS
We want to be very consistent in our car rider procedures as we move into such a busy time of the year. Beginning Tuesday, January 21, you must have the blue official Welch Elementary School Car Rider sign posted in the front window of your car.
*Orange sign is NO LONGER valid!
|If you do not have your sign, you will need to park your car and show ID in the front office before your child can be released to you. This is for the child’s safety. Please review the procedures outlined in this notice. THANK YOU!!!|

Sumdog, www.sumdog.com, is an excellent site for learning and practicing math. Students can use the program both at school and at home, earning points to dress up their avatars. Many Coweta County teachers introduced their students to this site, and they report that students love it. Students like that they are able to challenge each other and students from around the world in games. The majority of the math games are free, and the site doesn’t have ads on it.
Coweta schools are participating in a county-wide competition! Click HERE to discover how to join the math fun!!
