Parent Councils United

The Parent Councils United of DeKalb (PCU): Cross Keys Cluster, Dunwoody-Chamblee, Emory LaVista, South DeKalb, and Tucker, are individual grass roots organizations.

Recently, in a demonstration of county & community unity, the Parent Councils United of DeKalb (PCU) formed. It was born out of a desire to demonstrate there is shared concern and shared agreement throughout the county on many school and educational issues. Each community is different, with different challenges and priorities, but we come together in a basic belief system of what our children should receive and how our school system should operate.

Parent Council United is here for 3 reasons:
– To inform – To discuss – To advocate

Reminders and updates

Cell phones should be off and out of site during the day unless being used with teacher permission for instructional purposes.

Check-out: Latest time to check out a student is 2:45. This protects the instructional time for all students at the end of the day. Please plan accordingly.

When a student returns to school after an absence, please have him/her submit their excuse to the front office. Teachers are not able to mark excused absences. An admit slip will allow students to gather missed work.
