Walk to School Day

Parsons students participated in International Walk to School Day on Wednesday. Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. Thousands of schools across America – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – participate every October. As you can see from the picture above, we had a HUGE turnout. It was a great way to start our morning and come together as a community.

Afternoon Transportation

All transportation changes must be made in writing. Whenever you need to make a change to your child's afternoon transportation plan, please complete an Afternoon Transportation Change Form in the front office no later than 12:00 PM the day of the change. We will utilize this form to create the appropriate afternoon transportation pass. Please remember the GCPS Bus Rule: no passes will be issued for play dates, birthdays, weekend sleepovers, etc. For security reasons, we DO NOT accept transportation changes through phone calls or emails.

Student Check Out

Anyone checking out a child must present photo identification and be listed in our system as someone able to have access to the student. If you need to make changes to your list of approved emergency contacts, you may make changes on the Parent Portal or stop by the office to update this information. As a reminder, students may NOT be checked out after 3:00 PM. For assistance in updating contact information on the Parent Portal, please visit https://www.gcpsk12.org/Page/11430.
