    NO SCHOOL:  MACS ELEMENTARY ACADEMIC FINE ARTS AT GBS – Friday, March 31st

    School will be closed Friday, March 31st as Granite is hosting the Maryland Association of Christian Schools Elementary Academic Fine Arts Competition.  GBS students who are performing in academic categories such as speech, poetry, spelling bee, sword drill and Bible memory will receive instructions with performance times. Students who submitted an art, history or science project do not need to attend the competition.  Lunch orders are available for students and their parents who are attending.  Thank you.

    ENROLLMENT PACKETS

    We have begun taking enrollments for new families.  Some classes may fill quickly, so we encourage you to register early.  A registration fee of $275 per child must be paid before your registration can be processed. If we do not have that fee by April 28, 2017, you will have missed the early registration fee deadline.  All current families processed after April 28th will have to pay a fee of $325 per child as stated in your enrollment packet.

    SICK POLICY

    According to our policy in the Student Handbook students who are ill or have a fever are not permitted to attend class and should not be brought to school.  A child who wakes up with a fever and is given Tylenol is still a sick child.  Please do not send your child to school within a 24 hour period of fever, vomiting or diarrhea.  No student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be allowed to remain in school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

    PARKING LOT SAFETY

    Parents, please remember the speed limit on our parking lot is 5 mph at all times.  When dropping off please pull all the way down to the second crosswalk at the back of the gym.  Please do not drive around to the School Office or to a classroom through either one of the rear exits.  Children are not expecting cars to be driven on the parking lot during the school day.  All parents should park out front and walk in to the School Office.  This is for the safety of all our children.  Thank you!

     

    STUDENT DRESS FOR ATHLETIC GAMES

    Student Spectators (Including Elementary):  With the exception of special events (like Fall Spirit Day) school standard dress must be worn for all school activities including after school games, Saturday tournaments and evening events.
