Forrest Hill Academy: A Better Alternative

  • New School Information 

     
    Welcome back to the 2016 - 2017 school year at your Forrest Hill Academy! Student schedules have changed.
     
    Class will promptly begin at 9:30 A.M., and dismissal will begin at 4:17 P.M. The APS school bus pick-up and drop-off location has also changed. Students will not be picked up in the bus lane; instead, the APS school bus will board students from Main Street at the East Point MARTA station. The Atlanta Public Schools' district leadership is aware of parent concerns, and they are diligently working to provide a better solution. School buses will depart from Main Street between 8:55 A.M. and 9:35 A.M. in 10 minute increments. Car riders may be dropped off on campus as early as 9:00 AM. We are looking forward to a great year, and if you have questions, feel free to contact your FHA staff at (404)802-6950.

APS Unveils Game Management Plan for District Sporting Events

ATLANTA – Atlanta Public Schools (APS) unveils a game management plan for district sporting events at both Grady and Lakewood stadiums to ensure a better game day experience for students, families and the surrounding community.

The “United We Play” campaign focuses on enhanced standards of behavior in and around APS sporting venues. This includes crowd management, ticketing, traffic and parking, and emergency planning. For the remainder of the season, the district wants all APS football fans to “huddle up and have a ball,” and wear their favorite APS school team gear, all while enjoying games in a safe and secure atmosphere.

“I want all of our communities and school clusters to have the confidence that we are very serious about our security measures so everyone can enjoy themselves,” said APS Superintendent Meria J. Carstarphen. “The time has come for us to exercise more leadership across the district, and we will be asking everyone in the city to step forward with us.”

In advance of games this weekend, the district has updated safety and security planning with the Atlanta Police Department to improve the fan experience at both stadiums. These include:

  • Creating a more visible police presence both inside and outside Grady and Lakewood stadiums, including assigning more marked vehicles outside the stadiums

  • Managing ticketing procedures to ensure quicker service and shorter lines

  • Assigning perimeter security officers around the stadiums to focus on pedestrians walking to and from the games through neighborhoods

  • Improving security mobility with use of additional vehicles for quicker responses

For the long-term, the district is allowing more staffing flexibility on game nights and providing training for stadium employees in the form of drills and exercises. APS will also reach out to partners who have expertise in safety and security planning to review existing plans and communications for all major sporting events. “We need a district-wide conversation about how we establish norms in and around our extra-curricular activities, including a fan-civility policy and expanding our Social-Emotional Learning programming beyond the classroom and into our play spaces,” said Carstarphen.
