As we continue to receive more information for the upcoming school year, we do our best to update you as soon as possible. We regret to inform our band parents/students that Freedom Park School will not have a band class for the 2020-2021 school year. As we restructure our programs due to the current situation(s), we hope to bring this program back in the near future.
Vision: The Richmond County School System will provide an equitable education for all students to prepare them for life beyond the classroom.
Mission: Building a globally competitive school system that educates the whole child through teaching, learning, collaboration, and innovation.
Over the next few weeks we will be formulating plans on several fronts. We will be communicating with you concerning each plan as they are developed and we will also be sending out inquiries about technology needs. Please know that the safety of our students and faculty is priority number 1. In short:
1) School start has been moved to September 8th for both options (online or face to face)
2) Parents now have until July 27th to register for online academy
3) Technology for students who needed it will be distributed after August 17th.
4) If cases continue to rise, we will start September 8th but we will use a virtual model for all students if that is warranted based on the situation at that time
5) Open House will be September 4th. The format is TBD.

All students 3rd-8th grade are provided their own laptop. This laptop is at no charge to the families, comes with four (4) additional copies of Microsoft 365, and can be taken from home to school. Click the "Students" tab to access the handbook as well as additional technology information for students.
Teacher of the Year (TOTY) is something many teachers dream of. It can be a validation of years of hard work and dedication to the profession. Another point of pride at Freedom Park is that the award is given by their teacher peers. There are several qualifications for receiving this award such as years of service and certification. In addition, the teacher voted as a teacher of the year goes above and beyond and excels in the areas of classroom instruction, student interaction, school-wide support, and professional behavior. Ms. Wade is an excellent example of what it means to by the TOTY.
You may log on to Infinite Campus to view your student's grades. Infinite Campus also allows you check whether or not your student has received a tardy or an absence.
