Reminders for Week 1 at CGMS


We are excited to see our scholars on Monday for the start of the new year ready to learn.  

Please be patient with us during this first week as we may experience delays with bus transportation.

There is no scholar supervision until 8;20 a.m., and that is the earlies time scholars may enter the school building. 

Additionally, scholars who are car riders will be released at 3:50 p.m. and they must be picked no later than 4:00 p.m., in the parking lot in front of the school unless they are participating in afterschool activities. 

Just as a reminder, Cedar Grove Middle School strongly encourages everyone to wear a mask as a result of the rise of COVID 19 in DeKalb County. We encourage scholars to bring a refillable water bottle and hand sanitizer. 

Remember, CGMS is a uniform school. Scholars are allowed to wear jeans (no holes) on Fridays. 

We will begin our "Dress Up Professional Day" in September.  

Moreover, scholars are not allowed to use lockers this year, therefore they must carry a book bag. We are asking parents/guardians to help us to continue to provide a safe school environment by purchasing your scholar a clear or mesh book bag to use. 

Additionally, scholars are not allowed to use or have their cellphones visible during the school day. We will strongly enforce this DeKalb County School District policy by following the Student Code of Conduct as the use of cellphones are a major distraction and are often used to cause problems among scholars. 

Scholars are responsible for their own electronic devices not the school. Parents/Guardians we stress that you call the school if you need to contact your scholar while they are at school as to not distract your scholar's learning or the learning of others. 

Again, Cedar Grove Middle School's faculty and staff is excited about this up-coming school year and we thank you in advance for your support of your scholar's learning and your support of CGMS. 

Working together, our scholars' academic progress will soar!!! 

Remember, our school's theme this year is: "BE INTENTIONAL"
