MORNINGSIDE

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Prospective Parent Information

  • Welcome to our wonderful school!  Come visit us to see and learn about our facilities, our programs, our students, and our excellent school community.  All prospective parents are welcome, regardless of your child's predicted enrollment date. No children, please. Tours are held during school hours, and we prefer to have as few disturbances as possible while school is in session.
     

    Prospective Parent Tours: 


    We host prospective parent group tours once per month, typically the second Thursday of each month, from 9:00-10:15 am, to provide prospective parents an opportunity to visit the school. Private tours are not typically given, although exceptions may be made for families who are moving from another city and will not be in Atlanta during one of our scheduled group tours.
     
    Upon arrival at MES, please enter at our main door, located at the carpool lane on Dolphin Drive (directly across E. Rock Springs from the stop light at Barclay Drive).  In order to enter, press the intercom button at the entry door until you hear the "unlock click", then sign in at the computer in our Main Office just inside the door and receive a Visitor badge.  The tour guide will meet you in the Main Office at 9:00 am.  You must sign up in advance to take a school toursign up here.

    New Student Orientation and Tour:


    The Morningside Elementary School PTA invites all students who have already registered to attend Morningside Elementary starting August 2017 to a new student orientation in mid May 2017. (Atlanta Public Schools Registration Info HERE).  We would like to limit the attendees to those families who have already registered to attend MES so that your children can meet other children who will attend school with them in August 2017.
     
    We will gather on the school basketball courts for check in and a tour of the school given by current MES students and parents. Tours begin at 8:30 am and will continue in groups until our last tour departs at 9:00. Please arrange childcare for younger children so that we can focus on our new incoming students. We look forward to meeting you! Registration for this event is required. Date and sign-up will be provided in the upcomming weeks.
     
    Parking:
    There are very few visitor parking spots at our school, and they are usually full. Parking is most convenient next door at Haygood Memorial United Methodist Church lower parking lot (located at the corner of E. Rock Springs and E. Sussex Road) or on Barclay Drive (directly across E. Rock Springs from the school).
