Student Support

Students unable to be on campus can check in with core teachers during scheduled times for additional instructional support via Zoom. Click here to find your teacher's availability and Zoom link.


In order to monitor student progress, student grades are available in Powerschool. If you cannot access your Parent Powerschool Portal, please email stephanie.byland@cravenk12.org. Reach out to your child's teachers with any questions about assignments and grades.


All teachers at GCF are using Canvas as the learning management system. If your child is absent or unable to be on campus for any reason, learning can still continue while they access their instructional materials from home. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you require any assistance with Canvas.


Any students unable to be on campus can make a Counselor Request by clicking here.

Not Feeling Well?

If you have a child that is not feeling well, please keep them home and contact Nurse Green (eileen.green@cravenk12.org) as soon as possible. She will give you guidance and next steps based on current Craven County Schools protocols.

Has your child been absent recently?

If your student has been absent, please send a note with your student regarding their absences once they have returned.

FCA Meetings

FCA meets every Friday morning at 8 a.m. in the Media Center.
