    Remember to Send a Mask with Your Child Daily

    Please remember to send your child to school with a mask each day. While we do keep extra masks for students who lose or forget their mask, supplies are limited. We recommend using cloth masks that can be washed and re-used. They are the most economical and earth-friendly!

    Birthday Parties

    We have received some requests from families to provide a little something to their child's class in celebration of their child's birthday. We want to honor these requests while also asking you to keep the following in mind:
    • Any food must be individually wrapped and store-bought. This allows us to check the nutritional label for any students with dietary restrictions.
    • As a healthy alternative to sweets, we encourage families to consider non-food items as party favors (e.g., pencils, stickers, etc.).
    • Celebrations will usually be scheduled for the last 10 minutes of the day, in order to ensure we are taking too much time from instruction.
    • If your family does not celebrate birthdays and would like your child to be excused from these events, please let us know so we can plan an alternative.
    • Please reach out to your child's homeroom teacher 2 days in advance, so they can anticipate and plan for the celebration.

    Thank you!

    Cold and Hot Lunches

    GLC is able to offer hot lunches to all of its students free of charge. Menus for each month are available HERE. The September lunch menus are available in English and Spanish. Students who do not want a hot lunch should bring a cold lunch. We do ask students to choose one or another. Students are not able to have a hot lunch, while also bringing a cold lunch. This interferes with the nutritional value of the hot lunch and results in additional waste. If students are still hungry after a hot lunch, they may eat a snack from home in our snack area during their lunch recess.

    Picking Up HEART Students Right After School

    If there is a reason you need to pick up your HEART student right after school, please call the front office at least 30 minutes in advance so we can let your child know. Once we are at the dismissal gate, it is difficult to get students who have already gone to HEART back to the gate in a timely manner. Also, when picking up students early, from HEART or our regular day program, please be sure it is for a necessary and valid reason. Thank you!

    Volunteer Orientation & Training

    We will hold our next Volunteer Orientation &Training this Tuesday (September 21) at 2:30 p.m. via Zoom. If you are interested in attending, Zoom information will be sent out the night prior via ClassTag and our Blackboard text app.

    School Site Council (SSC)

    We are still are looking for three more parents who would be interested in serving on our School Site Council. We meet six (6) times each year via Zoom. Please reach out to Ms. Aure at kaure@vusd.org if you are interested.
