Cold Weather Approaching

Just a reminder that October can bring 70 degree days or snow... and we are going outside to play no matter what! All students go outside every day that it is above 0 degrees for a 20- minute recess. Please send hats and gloves for colder days, and be ready for snow pants and boots once it starts snowing. If you are in need of support for winter coats, hats, boots or gloves, please contact mattsl@gaylord.k12.mi.us.

Tips and Tricks for a Smooth Beginning and End of Day

Beginning of Day: Don't forget that once the busses leave in the morning, you are welcome to drop off at the front of the building. Once you hit the stop sign by the school, take a look and see which line seems the least busy and head in that direction.


Please remain in your car at all times.


End of Day:


-2/3 Pick Up Parents: If you have been getting stuck on North Ohio waiting for the buses to clear, consider (when coming in from the south) taking a LEFT on North street, a RIGHT on West, and another RIGHT on Schreur to come straight across to the NOE gym entrance.


-K/1 Pick Up Parents: While school dismissal begins at 2:46, buses are generally not cleared from the front until 2:55. Right around 3:00, the line begins moving quickly for K/1 pickup. Arriving just after 3:00 will make for a smoother pick up for all.


-All parents: please make sure, if at all possible, that your child enters your vehicle using the door that is closest to the curb. It is most efficient for you to stay in your vehicle at all times.

Halloween

Students will be allowed to wear Halloween costumes to school on Friday, October 29th. Students will still need to wear face masks according to the GCS Emergency Operations Plan. While we will not be allowing students to bring in treats to hand out, we can promise you that we have fun activities planned for the students to enjoy.

Office Hours
