GMS Newsletter

February, 2022


Gaylord Middle School track and field will tentatively start April 4th right after school. The coaches are Mr. Berkshire, Mrs. Baril, and Mrs. Fitzgerald. Students must have a physical on file in the GMS office in order to participate.

Lost & Found

The cafeteria stage, locker rooms and office (small items/jewelry only) are overflowing with lost and found items. If students are missing items please have them check the lost & found.

8th Grade High School Course Selection

GHS counselors will be meeting with students on March 1st to go over high school course selection for the 22-23 school year. The pink high school course selection sheets are due back at GMS by March 8th.

Students Arriving Late/Leaving Early

Students arriving to school late must sign in at the office before reporting to class. Parents or guardians can excuse their child's tardiness by phone or by note. Students not excused will receive an unexcused tardy.

Students leaving before the end of the school day will only be released to a parent or guardian. The office must be notified by a parent or guardian, in writing or by phone, whenever a student is to be released to someone other than themselves.

Parent Portal

Parent Portal is a great way to keep up-to-date on your student's grades and attendance. Please contact the office for your sign-in credentials. Please note that PowerSchool is no longer updating the Parent Portal phone app. The best way to access Parent Portal is through the Gaylord Schools website. Staff email addresses are attached to this newsletter.
