Notification of Absences

Many of you are now notifying both the office (Jessica Rickman) and your child’s teacher by email whenever your child is absent from school, and this is much appreciated.

In addition, when your child has been absent from school, he or she must bring a note indicating the reason for the absence. If a doctor visit was made, please send a note from the doctor indicating that it is safe for the child to return to school.

Chaperones for Green Meadows Field Trip

Our annual field trip to Green Meadows Petting Farm in Grand Prairie is coming up on October 27th. If you’ve told your child’s teacher that you’d like to chaperone the trip, please make sure you’ve completed the Volunteer Handbook AND the Volunteer Background Check. Both can be found at http://www.gcisd-k12.org/page/474, or you can find it on the GCISD website by searching ‘volunteer’. The process can take 2 weeks to secure approval so be sure to complete it this month! Chaperones will NOT ride with us on the bus but can meet us at Green Meadows.

Friday Readers

If you are interested in being a Friday Reader in your child’s classroom, you MUST have completed the Volunteer Handbook AND the Volunteer Background Check before coming. The process can take 2 weeks to secure approval so please complete it asap! Both can be found at http://www.gcisd-k12.org/page/474, or you can find it on the GCISD website by searching ‘volunteer’.
