A.B. Combs Families,


We have had a successful start to our end of grade tests this past week.  This is a reminder that if your child comes to school after 8:30, testing will most likely have already started and students will have to make up their EOG at another time.


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.


Simple volunteer renewal process opens July 1:  Families who were approved to volunteer in the 2023-24 school year will receive an email on June 1 outlining the simple volunteer renewal process for the 2024-25 school year. We encourage families to renew their volunteer status during the renewal window, July 1-Oct. 1.


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
