Dear Parents and Community,

As Principal of Early County High School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome everyone back for another exciting year. We are very excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with a liveliness and zeal for learning. It is our mission to provide engaging and challenging educational opportunities for all of our students. At Early County High we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. We believe that all students should graduate from high school prepared for the demands of college, meaningful careers and effective citizenship.

As we focus on student achievement, we will provide a variety of academic and educational experiences that promote student growth and learning throughout the year. This school year I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s learning. Parental involvement plays a critical role in our school’s success. There are ways to support and increase your child’s academic success including, but not limited to:

• Making attendance a PRIORITY including decreasing tardiness and absences

• Checking Parent Portal regularly to stay informed of student progress

• Communicating often with your child’s teacher

• Reviewing the school day with your child to focus on highlights of the day.

I am so very grateful to serve as your Principal at Early County High School. It is truly a pleasure to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at 229-723-3006 or at dyarbro@early.k12.ga.us.

Welcome back and lets make it another great year together!
