Drop off and Pick up instructions

Pick-up in the afternoon is still NOT in the "Drop off zone" but rather in the Middle School parking lot. You will park in a parking spot and wait for your student to meet you at your vehicle. We do this to keep traffic for the Lower Elementary and the Early Childhood Center flowing. Please refrain from parking and waiting in the Drop off zone or the fire lane to wait for your student.

Semester Test Exemptions are BACK!

Semester tests will be given at the end of each semester. The policy states that students

will be exempt from taking semester tests if they meet the following criteria in a class:

Grade Absences

A 3 or fewer

B 2 or fewer

C 1 or fewer

All students with a grade of D or F must take semester tests. School activity absences are

the only absences that do not count against the student, or disqualify them from a

semester test exemption. Students that enter the district after the first nine weeks of the

semester do not qualify for exemptions.

GMS Attendance Policy

The state of Oklahoma considers a student “chronically absent" if he/she is in attendance less than 90% of the time. This means that a student may miss no more than 8 days per semester. The only absence that will not count toward the student's overall absences are school sponsored activities. A student will not receive credit or be in compliance with the school law on attendance if he/she misses more than 8 days in a semester. It is the responsibility of the school to notify the district attorney if the law is not being followed.

Dress Code

appropriate to maintain good order and decorum as an essential part of the school
