June 8th = GES Students Last Day of School!

Please be aware that the last day of school, for GES students, is June 8th. It is a full day for students. As explained in a previous news release, in order to transport students while adhering to CDC guidelines, CCPS increased bus runs to three daily and adjusted the student schedule accordingly. However, given those circumstances, a half day of school cannot be accommodated.

Report cards will be mailed to parents/guardians on or before June 14th.

Class Parties & Awards

Due to the continued Covid19 restrictions, award presentations and class parties will be for students only this year. We plan to hand out awards during the morning of June 8th and class parties will occur in the PM. We sincerely apologize that we are not able to allow parents in the building for these events. It is our hope that we will be able to open these events back up to our families next year.
