A.B. Combs Families,


I hope you all are enjoying a great Memorial Day weekend. 


Assistant Principal:  We are excited to announce that the WCPSS School Board has approved the appointment of Alexandra Storey to serve as the new Assistant Principal at Combs.  Mrs. Storey will officially begin in this position in July.  You can review a welcome letter from Mrs. Storey here.  Our Interim Assistant Principal, Mrs. Abraham, will continue to be with us at Combs until the end of this school year.


No School on May 27th: There will be no school on Monday, May 27th, in observance of Memorial Day.  Students will return to school on Tuesday, May 28th.


EOGs next week: It is imperative that all students arrive to school on time next week during end of grade tests. If a student arrives after 8:30, the classroom may have already started testing and students that are late to school will not be able to enter.  They will then have to attend another class during the testing time and retake the EOG test at a later date. 


Bus times at End of the Year:  Our buses are part of a tiered bus service that aligns with Athens Drive High School.  During high school exams, our buses will arrive at Combs earlier at dismissal and therefore will be dropping off earlier in the afternoons.  Please plan to arrive at your child’s bus stop early on June 6, 7, 10, 11, 12.  Thank you for your proactive planning for this schedule change.


Yearbooks: Yearbooks were sent home.  Please submit payment for yearbooks ($17) and/ or school pictures.  If you are not interested in purchasing either of these items, please return items to your child’s teacher ASAP.


5th grade graduation:  We will host our 5th grade graduation on Tuesday, June 11th, at 9am at the school track.  Families are asked to bring their own lawn chairs to enjoy this outdoor event.  In the event of rain, graduation will be moved to the school gym and each student will be allotted 2 tickets for guests to attend.


Students not returning for next year: It’s hard to believe, but we are in the beginning stages of preparing for the next school year.  Our teacher allotments depend on the number of students we have registered.  If you know your child will not be returning to Combs for the next school year, please email our data manager, Ms. Sarah Ferrell, at
