Safety Reminders from George School

Just a few quick reminders to ensure the safety of our George School Family. As you know when you are entering the school building, after you are buzzed in, please come directly to the front office to have your identification and presence registered. If a person is behind you upon entering, please do not let them in. I appreciate that no one wants to appear rude, however for safety inventory purposes, we need a record of each person that is in the building. Also during morning, Red Flag drop off please do not drive around the cars in the drop off line. Thank you to the Red Flag Helpers for your support in keeping everyone safe. And thank you to each of you for your patience and support with these procedures to keep our children safe.

News from our School Nurse Mrs. Charlene Alessi

The fourth and fifth graders will have the annual Growth and Development lessons March 28th and 29th before Spring Break. Parents and guardians, please check your child’s backpack for the informational letter about the curriculum for your child and their grade level. As always, feel free to contact the Health Office with questions and concerns.
