We're excited to announce a new format for GCPS' digital magazine, Communiqué! Now it's 36th year, Communiqué is changing to better meet the needs of our families. Rather than producing a flip-magazine each semester, as we have in the past, we'll be posting digital content on a more regular basis. You can expect to see feature stories from our local schools, videos from around the district, photo galleries of school activities and events, calendar items, and Bulletin Board shorts.


If your Student has misplaced their jacket, lunch box, or any item,

please have them check our Lost and Found TODAY.
