Back-to-School Information for 2021-2022
Posted 6/22/21

The first day of school for the 2021-2022 school year is Monday, August 2. This is important information to know as we prepare to go back to school. For more information, visit our Back-to-School Toolkit on our website.

 

Register for School

All student registration can be done online via any Internet-enabled device you have. If you are unable to register online or need assistance, you may make an appointment with your zoned school to use their computer kiosks. High school offices are open throughout the summer, and elementary and middle school offices will reopen on July 8. If you don't know your school zone, find it here.

Open House for Schools

All of Bulloch County Schools’ elementary, middle and high schools will host open houses for students and their families. This is a time to receive important information, meet teachers, and more.

 

Please note that for families of pre-kindergarten, rising sixth-grade, and rising ninth-grade students, your schools may host additional open houses for just your grade levels.  If they do, your schools will communicate this information with you and place it on their websites and social media.

 

These are the dates and times of our open houses:

  • Traditional Learning (face-to-face): Thursday, July 29, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for elementary schools and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for middle and high schools. These open houses are held at each individual school.
  • Virtual Learning Program: Thursday, July 29, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., in the William James Educational Complex Cafeteria, located at 150 Williams Road in Statesboro. Guests may enter the entrance marked with the letter E on the east side of the building under the portico. Families will receive important orientation information, meet teachers, and check out needed technology devices.

School Supplies

Elementary and middle schools will post their schools’ supply lists on their websites and social media. Supplies for high school students are course specific, so teachers will make students aware of any needed supplies the first day of school. 

 

First Day of School – Attendance Matters

The first day of school is Monday, Aug. 2.  Attendance matters each day, so please help us set the standard by ensuring that all children are at school on the first day and arrive on time.  A complete 2021-2022 School Calendar is available of the district website.

 

First Day Traffic Reminders

Please remember that school car line wait times will be longer and traffic heavier the first few weeks of school before some children transition to riding school buses.  Please allow plenty of time to arrive safely and on time. Each school's start and end time is listed on our website.

 

New Year-New Faces - School administrators in new roles

Multiple schools have new leaders for the 2021-2022 school year.  For a complete list of the principals and assistant principals assigned to each school, visit the school district's list of school websites.

 

School Safety:

Bulloch County Schools has visitor protocols in place, and all schools use an electronic visitor check-in system, called CheckMate. While all schools will use a supervised open-door policy the first two weeks of the school year to accommodate new and young students and their families, on Aug. 16, strict adherence to school system visitor protocols will begin.

 

On that date, to ensure the safety of all adults and children in the schools, all visitors will be required to present a state-issued picture identification card or driver’s license to gain entry past the secured areas of any of the school district’s schools.  Should a visitor not have a state-issued identification card, other acceptable forms of picture identification may be accepted at the discretion of school administrators.

 

School administrators have the authority to ask any visitor to explain his or her presence in a school building. Review the school district’s visitor protocols and frequently asked questions on our website.

 

Online Tools to Assist Families

  • Online Registration: All new student registration for Bulloch County Schools’ students is done online, either via the district's website or via computer kiosks at all schools during school hours. Families have convenient 24-7 access to use the online registration tool from anywhere and from any Internet-enabled device.  Visit www.bullochschools.org/registration to begin. High school offices are open throughout the summer, and elementary and middle school offices will reopen on July 8, if you need assistance.
  • Online Campus Parent & Campus Student: Parents and students have enjoyed 24-7 online access to attendance, class schedules, assignments, grades, report cards and announcements through Campus Parent Portal (Campus Portal) for almost 10 years. To better serve you, Campus Portal has been upgraded to Campus Parent and Campus Student. Visit the school district’s website or speak with your school’s media specialist about the use of these free online tools.
  • Back-to-School Toolkit: Visit our one-stop online resource for all our back-to-school information.

All Children Eat for Free

For the 2021-2022 school year, all children will receive free breakfast and free lunch. This is made possible by the United States Department of Agriculture’s continued extension of its Seamless Summer Feeding program in response to COVID-19.  Students may still purchase second servings and non-menu a-la-carte items. The MySchoolBucks website and mobile app are still available to manage meal account funds online.
