COMMUNITY WORKER PRESENTATION: MARYLAND POLICE ON CAMPUS – Thursday, April 7th

We will have members of the Maryland Transportation Authority police on our campus this Thursday, April 7th to present their community service to all of our students.  Units that will be represented include the Maryland Police K-9 unit and the Maryland Transportation Mobile Police Crime Lab which will be stationed in our courtyard for the day.

 

NO SCHOOL: EASTER VACATION

School will be closed Monday, April 11th through Monday, April 18th for Spring Break.  The School Office will be closed during Spring Break. The GBS Faculty and Staff would like to wish all our families a blessed Easter.

 

REPORT CARD DISTRIBUTION

Report cards were distributed to all students today.  Please sign your child’s envelope and return it to their teacher by Wednesday, April 6th.

 

CALENDAR CHANGE

Please note our American Christian Honor Society chapel has been moved to Wednesday, May 4th at 2:00 pm in the church auditorium.

 

EARLY REGISTRATION FEE REMINDER

Just a reminder to current GBS families who have not enrolled for the 2022-2023 school year, some of the elementary classes are almost full.  Several families have begun the online enrollment process but have not completed the enrollment process through the FACTS portal.  A registration fee of $275 per child must be paid and the full online enrollment package must be submitted before your registration can be processed. If we do not have that fee and completed online packet by April 30, 2022 you will have missed the early registration fee deadline.  All current families processed after April 30th will have to pay a fee of $325 per child as stated in your enrollment packet.

 

TRAFFIC CONTROL

Parents, please do not attempt to bypass the orange cones once they have been placed. If arriving after 8:14 am, please park out front and walk your child to the School Office.  For afternoon dismissal, cars should not pull onto the back parking lot until 2:45 pm for the safety of students walking to the gym and/or School Office. Thank you.

 

EARLY DISMISSAL POLICY

Parents, if possible, please call the School Office or send in a note if your child will be signed out before the end of the school day.  All visitors will need to come to the School Office and ring the doorbell and wait outside the gymnasium doors for assistance.  Thank you.

 

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.

 

STUDENT DRESS FOR ATHLETIC GAMES

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