From Ms. Stokes:
Parents, we thank you for your continuous support as we work to provide your child with an excellent education every day. This is a reminder that our students' attendance does matter. Our school day is from 7:15 until 2:25. We are asking that you do not pick students up early unless it is an emergency or medical appointment. It is very important that our babies come to school each and every day with a positive, can-do attitude, ready to learn. They are working so hard completing their homework and reading every night. We are super excited about our continuing work as we create these wonderful pathways to prosperity daily with our children. We can't do this job alone; we need each of you. We thank you for all of your support!
Starting January 3, 2019, each GCS school day will begin five minutes earlier.
These extra five minutes may not seem like much, but they will help us meet state requirements and avoid adding more make-up days to the 2018-19 calendar.
Bus riders, please be at your bus stop five minutes earlier.
At Brightwood, doors will open at 7:15, and instruction will begin at 7:40. Students should be in classrooms by 7:40.
The teacher workday scheduled for Jan. 22 has been moved to Jan. 28, to coincide with the end of the semester.
