To ensure you receive messages regarding school closings or other school related news, please let the front office know of any phone number changes.

It is extremely important students are at school on time. Students are counted tardy after 7:35. It is also important for students to stay in school the entire day. Frequent tardies and checking out early add up over time.

For example if a student is 10 minutes late or leaves 10 minutes early for an entire week that is 50 minutes of instruction lost.

Please label your child’s coat and other items, and please keep collecting Box Tops for Education.

After 3 absences you will receive and automated phone call notifying you of the absences. This will be standard procedure throughout Gordon County this year.   

We cannot accept changes of transportation through Dojo. Changes must be sent in writing to the school. 


In preparation for Milestones testing, we wanted to inform you we will not have lunchroom visits from April 17-May 4. Our Milestones testing will require us to make changes to schedules. We do not want guests to arrive and their child’s schedule has been changed or their child is still testing. This will impact all grade levels Pre-K through 5th. Please go ahead and let grandparents or anyone else you have granted permission to eat with your child know of our 2.5 week window with no lunchroom visitors. Should we complete the testing window earlier, we will notify you and open our lunchroom back up to the members of our Swain family. We appreciate your cooperation. Thank you.
