Our staff has worked extremely hard this summer to ensure every student at South has a schedule whether they are taking classes face-to-face or through virtual learning. Student course schedules will be available through Campus Portal beginning on Friday, July 21st at 9:00 am.
Any course(s) your student is taking face-to-face at South will be displayed in their schedule on Campus Portal. Any course(s) that are being taken through Forsyth Virtual or Georgia Virtual School will show up as "FVA" or "GAVS" in your student's schedule. All students registered in at least one course through Forsyth Virtual will be able to view those courses in Campus Portal once FVA (Forsyth Virtual Academy) releases their schedules.All students taking Georgia Virtual courses should log in to their Georgia Virtual School account to view course dates and information.
Students' lunch periods are listed on their schedule with their 4th period teacher on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and with their 5th period teacher on Tuesday and Thursday.

If you are scheduled in an IE2 period, please note you MUST leave campus during the scheduled period.You cannot stay in the building unattended in common areas.We will remove IE2 if you are unable to arrange transportation to leave daily.You must also complete theIE2 Contract for 2023-2024school year if you have not already done so.If you do not complete this form by August 4th at 4:00 pm, IE2 will be removed from your schedule, and you will be scheduled in face-to-face classes.
FORSYTH VIRTUAL AND GEORGIA VIRTUAL SCHOOL
As a reminder the deadline to request courses through Forsyth Virtual and Georgia Virtual School ended on July 13th.For students who are registered part-time through FVA or GAVS, please fill out theVirtual Transition Permission Formwhich will be available starting July 21st at 9:00 am for submissions. Students who are registered in a virtual class may transition off-campus during those virtual periods if the courses are scheduled at the beginning or end of their school day and the parent/guardian has submitted a completed Virtual Transition Permission Form. This is our preference as it supports the virtual learning option and flexibility associated. Any student who does remain on campus for their virtual class period will need to report to the East Hall Learning Center for their virtual period and will be rostered in attendance.
