Lockdown Drill - January 17, 2013
The Central Bucks School District is committed to taking proactive steps to protect the safety of all students and staff members. As part of our building safety plan, the Plumsteadville Police Department and Gayman Elementary have developed contingency plans in the event of safety threats. Gayman will be practicing one of these plans, building lockdown, on Thursday, January 17th, 2013. In this drill the entire building is locked down within seconds. The children are moved to a designated location in their classroom and asked to be silent until the building is secured (approximately five minutes). There are more specifics to this drill, however, they are confidential in keeping with our internal security procedures. Thank you for your understanding.
In the interest of minimizing any anxiety the children may have, please have a conversation with your child in advance of Thursday's lockdown drill.

Science Fair 2013
Winter Clubs 2013
Due to increased security the pick-up process for Winter Clubs will be approached differently this year. Parents will no longer be entering the school to collect their children. We have established a pick-up procedure much like end-of-the-day school dismissal. The pick-up locations will be the front of the school and the side of the school near the butterfly garden. A schedule has been created to indicate the end time of each club and pick-up location. Please click here to view the schedule.
Thank you for your support in keeping our children safe.
