Connect Ed Call to go out tonight

We will send a connect ed call to all families tonight, reminding them that there is no school tomorrow or Thursday. We will also remind them that part of our agreement for enrollment is that they take part in conferences.

New Attendance Secretary hired

Please welcome Christine Freeman to our school next year. Christine comes to us from Sunset Valley Elementary. I know you will join me in welcoming her to the GBEEC family.

Dinner for conferences

We will have dinner for conferences on Wednesday, Hickory Pit will be here at 11:30. Satellites, Jeanie is arranging for a meal for you!

Preschool Roundup

We sent out a document last week for you to sign up for different positions during this evening event. Our event is May 22nd from 4:30-6:00 and the goal is to welcome families to GBEEC and answer questions. Please send any questions you have to us, this is a first time event, so information/ideas are welcome!


Please list conferences on the Conference Schedule. Please notify the office if you will have any Parent / Teacher conferences scheduled before 4/25/18. Please have Conference Summary information on the document by 5/1/18.

Tornado Drill

  • Announcement will be made “Cyclone Drill” and staff / students will proceed to their assigned area for shelter.

  • Roll call will be made over the walkie. If you are a classroom teacher, please respond green or red. If red announce who is missing. Other staff will respond with “green”. (If you are not issued a walkie, use walkie from another staff.)

  • Staff Absence: If you secure a Para sub through the District, please include the sub’s name in your email to the office.

  • Mail procedure instructions and mail supplies are in the File Room. Please remember to place KC Presort slip on mail and secure with a rubber band.

  • Please notify the office if a Title student is now eligible to receive Special Education services. Please place the Title cumulative file in the brown file.

  • Regarding time off requests, classified staff will still need to request the entire time off. If they request 4 hours and they return after 4 hours plus some, they will need to modify this time off request or work the extra time before the end of the week.
