PICK UP and DROP OFF PLAN:  For those parents who are driving their children to and from GMS, please take a moment to review the pick up and drop off plan. Key reminders are: 
1. Staggered arrival and pick up times (see included link for grade specific times)
2. Only approach the school from the North (to prevent the need to turn left into the parking lot)
3. Only turn right out of the parking lot in order to keep the flow of traffic moving smoothly.

MASKS:  Please review with your child the importance of wearing their mask and keep a safe distance from other people. We will be very firm about ensuring students follow these expectations. All students coming to school at GMS will be expected to wear a mask while at school. It is very important that your children understand this is an expectation for everyone. In order for exceptions to be made, a note from their doctor must be provided indicating the reason for the necessary exemption. We understand that this will be difficult for the students to get used to. This is important in the work we are doing to minimize the risks for students and staff at GMS.

STUDENT ILLNESS: If your child is ill, you can call and leave a message OR email the school at This helps us complete our safe arrivals check in a timely manner each day.
