Paying the Technology Fee

Central School District 1:1 Replacement Charger Gayman $35

Central School District 1:1 Replacement Laptop Pen Gayman $37

You do not have to pay for these items. They are listed under your child's name in the event that a pen or charger is lost during the course of the school year and a replacement needs to be purchased. For anyone who mistakenly paid for one or both of these items, please contact Christine Stevens in the Gayman Main Office.

Attendance Reporting Update

The Central Bucks School District is changing the way student absences are reported. Now, parents and guardians are able to submit an absence request via the Parent Portal.

When a student is absent from school, but the school did not receive communication from the parent or guardian, the following communication will be sent:

  • A text message will be sent mid-morning notifying the parent or guardian of the absence.
  • An email will also be sent at the end of the school day reminding the parent or guardian that the student was marked absent.

Information regarding how to use the Parent Portal to report an absence can be found here.

Breakfast and Lunch Information

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service extended the program that will provide free meals for all students, regardless of income, for the 2021-22 school year. All menus are available to be viewed online up to 2 weeks in advance by visiting Gayman Elementary | Central Bucks School District (

Students are entitled to one reimbursable breakfast and one lunch per day.
