Weekly Announcements from Ms. Keels

Greetings GCMC Family,


I hope everyone had a good weekend. I just want to give a few quick updates and reminders as we start off this great week.


College Classes- College classes start Wednesday August 21st. Mrs. Horton gave new students another tour of the campus on Friday to help students learn where their college classes would be located. If your child did not pick up their college schedule from Mrs. Horton, they need to do that before Wednesday


College Books- Once students receive their syllabus from their college instructors they may stop by my office to pick up a college book. If we have them in stock they may check them out and they must be returned at the end of the semester. If we do not have them in, they are on order and we will communicate when they arrive. It is the student’s responsibility to check their emails or come directly to the office frequently to ask about back ordered books. Students, bring your syllabus with you when you come, so that I can make sure you’re getting the right books.


Workday- Although 8/22 is a Guilford County School workday. College classes are in session. Students are required to attend those classes. It is the students’ responsibility to make arrangements to get to classes, buses do not run on GCS/GCMC workdays.


Student Parking lot- Updates on our student parking: I have been working with the Greensboro Police Department. The homeless subjects have been banned from the campus. Police have their names and identification. If they return, they will be arrested. I conduct frequent patrolling of the lot. Also,  Guilford County Schools’ maintenance department are scheduled to assess the grounds to see what needs to be done to ensure the safety of our students. Nonetheless, continue to remind your child about taking safety precautions. Also, all students should store the office number in their phones in case of emergency. That number is 336-370-8300.


Lunch- If students are interested in getting a lunch through GC Schools, please see Mrs. Marshall to create your lunch choice calendar for the month. Lunch will be delivered daily by 11:00 am. Students interested in Adjusted lunch price programs need to complete a form each year, even if you participated in the program last year. You may find information on lunches on our website by scrolling down to the quick links at the bottom right side of the screen.


Buses- I understand that there has been some concerns with busses. If you’re having any issues with your bus pick-up, drop-off or assignment our number to transportation is 336-370-8088.


Let’s make it a great week.


Thank you,

Ms. C. Keels
