Back to School

It's about that time! The 2023-2024 school year is quickly upon us. Please see the information below regarding how to help your student have a successful school year.

New Student Registration

New Student Registration will take place on Wednesday, July 26, 2023 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. A parent or legal guardian must complete the enrollment paperwork and bring photo identification. Documents required include: proof of residency (rental agreement, water/electricity bill), birth certificate, social security card, immunization record (Form 3231), and the Ear, Eye, Dental Record (Form 3330). 

Open House

Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet their teachers at Open House on Thursday, August 3rd from 10 a.m. until noon. Community partners such as our area Girl Scout Troops will be available to distribute information on their programs and services. Parents will also have the opportunity to enroll in Parent Portal which enables them to keep track of their student's grades and assignments. In order to enroll in Parent Portal, you will need photo identification.

School Supplies

In an effort to relieve some financial hardships on our families and community, ESSER Funding was used to purchase general school supplies for all Toombs County School System Kindergarten through 12th grade students. Parents will be asked to provide personal items such as bookbags, pencil pouches, etc. Students will receive their supplies on the first day of school. For Pre-K students at TCES, the following items are needed:
