Looking for books...

Hey, Colt families!! GCPS is launching a county-wide initiative to help our books return safely to their home media centers! All schools and all public libraries will gladly accept books from ANY school or public library! All you have to do is return them and we will send them back to their home library. Thank you so much for your help!

Changes to the GCPS 2nd Semester Calendar

The GCPS calendar adjustment calls for the addition of four digital learning days during the semester (January 26, March 2, March 16, and April 20). These will be asynchronous learning days where students will learn from home, providing teachers additional days for planning during the semester.

Free Lunch Offerings through GCPS

All children under 18 years of age can get a free lunch and breakfast from GCPS schools. Curbside pick up at Craig Elementary is 11am to 1pm Monday - Friday at the back of the school. Even if your child brings a lunch to school they can get a free milk and fruit to accompany it.

Community Events
