GCS: Pre-K, Kinder, 1st, 2nd Grades Return to the Building

PreK, Kindergarten, First and Second Grade Face-2-Face Students Return to School



If your student is returning to face-to-face instruction on Thursday, November 12 here are a few things to remember:


•                     The tardy bell rings at 7:35am and instruction ends at 2:05pm.  Students may not enter the building before 7:05am and must be picked up by 2:25pm.

•                     Your student should bring a bottle of water labeled with their name and a well-fitting mask.

•                     Breakfast and lunch will be provided by our cafeteria and will be eaten in the classroom.

•                     Parents and visitors will NOT be allowed in the building unless they have an appointment with someone in the front office.  Appointments may be scheduled from 8am – 1:00pm and again from 3:00pm - 4pm.


Make sure your child’s teacher has an updated phone number to reach you and an emergency contact.


If your student is a car rider:

•                     Parents  will complete the student symptom attestation before students leave the car.

•                     Parents must stay in the car.

•                     If your child has no symptoms or fever, they will let themselves out of the car and enter the building.  Staff will direct them to their classrooms. 


If your student is a bus rider:

•                     You must complete a bus attestation form online at every morning.

•                     Do not send your child to school if they have a fever or have had one within 24 hours. Parents who have completed the bus transportation form by November 3, 2020 have been assigned a space. 

•                     Only students who have an assigned space will be allowed to ride the bus.  You may still complete a bus request by contacting our school data manager at 336-316-5858 beginning at 8:30am.  New requests may take up to 15 days for transportation to schedule.  Please be patient as the front office will be experiencing a high number of calls.


Do not send students who are not on the Face-to-Face roster. We will not have space to socially distance students who are scheduled for remote learning classes.  No 3rd -5th grade students should return to campus until Tuesday, January 5.


Afternoon Materials pick up has been cancelled.
