Color version of Allatoona letterhead for Candace Wilkes

Dear Parents,

We are quickly approaching the end of the 2018 – 2019 school year, and it is an exciting time for many students. The end of the year brings exams, playoff games, and graduation. Allatoona High School is a special place to be, and I am thankful for my first year as principal here. As we wrap up this school year, there are a few reminders I wanted to share with you.

The exam schedules for seniors and underclassmen have been posted on our website and sent out via email blasts. Please pay careful attention to our attendance policies on those days. No student may take an exam early without prior approval from administration, and we do not allow checkouts on those days unless it is an emergency. These policies are in place to support the success of all of our students, and I appreciate your support in this.

Graduation will take place at 9:00 AM on Friday, May 24, 2019, in the Allatoona High School Stadium. All information on graduation can be found on the Allatoona website under Quick Links. In the event of weather issues, we will communicate alternate plans as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Looking forward to next year, parking applications are currently available on the website, and these will be accepted as early as May 13, 2019. Complete information can be found on the first page of the application. Our annual Buc Bash is scheduled for July 30th. We will welcome freshmen and their parents to campus at 9:00 AM, and our upper classmen in the afternoon. Please visit our web site over the summer for updates about the upcoming school year.

I look forward to a successful last couple of weeks of this school year. I am proud of all of our Buccaneers and thankful to once again be a part of Buc Nation. Thank you for your warm welcome this school year!
