Abbreviated Day - August 1st

August 1st is our abbreviated day. Please arrive at 8:00 a.m. with your student and be prepared to stay until 10:00 a.m.  No breakfast will be served on this day. 
In the past, it was very confusing to parents if they should send their children or not. Therefore, we are asking ALL 1st through 5th graders to attend the abbreviated day. We encourage parents to come with their student.  
During this two hours, students will find out their classroom teacher and get the chance to go to their new classrooms.  Parents will be able to go to the classrooms with their student, meet the teacher, learn about home to school communication, and grade level expectations.  If parents cannot attend, students should still come on this day.
Bus routes will begin around 7:20 am for elementary. Students will be dismissed at 10:00 am and buses will load at that time to bring students back home. Students DO NOT need to bring anything with them on the August 1st.
Kindergarten students and parents will need to come to Hal Henard at noon for orientation. Kindergarten will not attend the 8:00-10:00 session.
Our first full day is Friday, August 3rd.
We are looking forward to a great year! If you have any questions, EMAIL Mrs. Ricker at rickerj@gcschools.net.
Thanks so much!
