Students may stay after school for home games with the following guidelines:  1) Only students in grades 7-12 may stay after school for a game without being accompanied by a parent.  2) All students staying after school need to report to the gym bleachers by 3:15 and be subject to the Aftercare policy.  3) No student is to leave the gym (going to Royal Farms, etc.) unless they have written permission from their parents and permission from the Aftercare monitor.  Granite Baptist School will not be responsible for the safety of students who leave our campus with or without our knowledge.  4) Students who stay after school for a game will be required to pay the established gate fee.  5) Students attending a game must be in school approved attire.  6) Students staying for a game must have a ride to pick them up as soon as the game concludes.



If GBS is closed or has a delayed opening, you can be notified the following ways:  School Cast messaging; our website; our phone messaging 410-761-1118 option 2 and option 2 again; WBAL-TV Channel 11; WRBS radio FM 95.1 and WBAL radio AM 1090.



This year we are offering season passes to all of our home basketball games and tournaments.  Season pass holders will save approximately 50% if they attend every home game.  The price is $35 per adult, $20 per child and a $100 family max for immediate family members (i.e. mother, father, child).  The regular ticket price is $3.00 per adult and $2.00 per student, per game. If you are interested please come to the School Office to purchase your season pass.  Let’s go Braves!



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



Please remember that 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.


School standard dress must be worn for all school activities.  Students are not allowed to change out of their school uniform for any reason other than P.E. or sports practice.  Students who are not leaving school immediately after P.E. or practice must change back into their school uniform for aftercare and/or games.  Important:  Parents please remember that gym shoes for indoor P.E. and for rainy day recess must have a non-marking sole.  We recommend Velcro fastened shoes if your child cannot tie his/her shoes.
