  • Cartersville City Schools now has an app. Members of the community can enjoy instant access to Canes news and calendars. Parents can access their student's grades, class schedule, attendance, school calendars, social media posts and lunch menus at the touch of a button. You can get instant notifications from your child’s school and from the district, so this winter you’ll know immediately when school is canceled for inclement weather. You can also add money to your student's cafeteria account from your device. You'll find other great features listed under the Resources icon. For complete login info and details on how to customize the app to meet your family’s needs, click here.
