Fernbank Elementary School is a DeKalb County school. It has served the children of Atlanta since 1957 and is located in Druid Hills, a beautiful historic neighborhood in Atlanta.

Our school is a fully-authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme school. While our primary focus is on providing a quality basic education for all students, we strive to enhance the total education of each child with foreign language, art, music, physical education, and computer/technology literacy.

Georgia schools parents survey

http://gshs.gadoe.org/parentsParents & Guardians:

We would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to participate in the annual Georgia Schools' Parent Survey. The data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. 

 
DeKalb County School District to continue 20-minute extended-day class schedule through November 30.
DeKalb County School District (DCSD) will continue to add 20 minutes to its school day through Thursday, Nov. 30, in an effort to recapture much of the instructional time lost due to the storm known as Hurricane Irma. 
Important Reminders About Attendance

Regular attendance at school is a key factor to any student's success. Please be diligent concerning DeKalb County School System's attendance policies:

School starts promptly at 7:40 am.

 
Introducing Fernbank's Buddy Bench!
Paul and Denise Beall and daughters Lola and Stori, Fernbank graduates, wanted to do something very special for our school - and particularly for children who sometimes feel left out on the playground. This wonderful family purchased a Buddy Bench for Fernbank, which now sits on the side of our playground. 
On the scene with Dr. Green is back!
The Superintendent of our DeKalb County School District, Dr. R. Stephen Green, will be holding 5 "On the Scene with Dr. Green" meetings this school year.  
Arrival and Dismissal Procedures
Now that we have the first few days of school under our belts, we are ready for some serious learning! As a reminder, if you're driving or walking your children to school, we ask that you drop your child(ren) between 7:00 am - 7:30 am so they have enough time to get to their classroom by 7:40 am, when the last bell will ring. Patrols should arrive by 7:15 am so they may be at their posts by 7:20 am. 
Got flyers? Submit them through Peachjar!
