Eagle Eye Newsletter

September 10th Edition

Happy Friday Eagle Families!

I hope you all had a great Labor Day Weekend! This week we kicked off our Morning Fall Clubs and they were well received by our students. I am so glad we can have clubs this year. This is such a treat for students.

As stated in last week's newsletter, I want to continue to give you handbook updates. Please read the 2021-2022 updates to the yearbook listed below:

Attendance - It is important that you be in school every day unless you are sick. Please bring in a note from your parent/guardian on the day you return to school – no later than three days from your return to school. The note should communicate the day(s) you were absent and the reason you were absent. It can also be a note from the doctor’s office.

Bell Schedule

8:40 a.m. Tardy/Warning Bell

8:45 a.m. Start of daily Eagle Eye Broadcast

3:20 p.m. Dismissal begins

Birthday Treats - Birthdays can be celebrated with ice cream purchased from the school or prepackaged snacks, such as factory sealed cookies or chips. This will minimize touch points to keep our school safe.

This is a reminder of the Digital Learning Day on Tuesday, September 14, 2021.

Have a great weekend!

Paula Cobb, Principal

GCPS encourages families to submit meal applications through Oct. 21

While breakfast and lunch will be provided at no charge for all GCPS in-person and digital students this school year, it still pays to complete the Free and Reduced-price Meal Application. Families whose students would be eligible for meal support in a typical year should complete the application as soon as possible.
