The following are announcements for the week of 3/29/2020
We have contacted parents who have students who need to pick up their laptops asap. We have a limited number of laptops available for students- we are now sharing our laptops with other schools who do not have technology, so it is important that laptops are picked up asap so that they can be reallocated if not needed by our students. Families who have been contacted to pick up laptops may do so from 10-2 in the car rider line in the parking lot. Do not come into the building, we will bring the tablets to you. If you are having trouble with your device, call Technology Services at 336.370.8179. WGMS parking lot is a hotspot- please feel free to use it as needed- remember to distance socially! Please be sure that your child logs into each of their classes each day so that they can access their assignments. This is very important so that students retain the information they have learned this year and stay on track academically.
The WGMS office is closed through April 16th. if you need assistance from WGMS, call 3363165833 from 8-4.
We will continue to serve meals from the cafeteria parking lot Monday-Friday this week from 11-12- come out and pick up grab and go lunch and a breakfast for the next day. Buses will also deliver between 11am-12pm to:
* River Birch
* Westview Valley￼
* Silver Briar
They will blow the horn when it's in the neighborhood.
On Friday, Backpack beginnings will provide food for the weekend for students who come in for grab and go meals.
The general helpline number for parents, students, employees and members of the public is: 336-332-7290.
The GCS student crisis (non-emergency) number is 336-332-7295. These hotlines are open M-F from 7am- 7pm.
Remember that we love our Tigers, please remember to wash your hands, stay home, read, and be well- Have a great week!
