Map and Directions

NO LEFT TURNS into the school grounds from Briarlake Road.

PLEASE display name signs until your child is safely in your car. Using a “skirt/pant” hanger on the mirror of the car is a great idea!!! All students should be picked up by 2:45 at the latest. Thank you for helping keep our children safe.

Turn your cell phones off while dropping off or picking up your children as well when inside the school building!


The DeKalb School System launches the Campus Portal for parents and students. Parents should access the main web page of DCSD > Parents > Infinite Campus Portal. This site has links, videos, and documents that will guide parents and students through the process of accessing the portal.

Parents will need an Activation Key if they do not already have access. Parents will need to contact their child’s teacher for the code. Parents must show ID to receive the code.

Student accounts are the same as before. Their User ID is ’S’ and their 7-digit DCSD student number. If students do not remember their password, they should go to the district’s main webpage and view the Account Management video which will walk them through resetting their password.

A Campus Portal support line is available from 8:30 am - 8:00 pm. Parents may call 678-676-1131 for assistance after visiting the district’s main webpage.

The Council of the Great City Schools’ parent roadmaps in Reading/English Language Arts and Mathematics provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8. These parent roadmaps for each grade level also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.
