The Tiger Times

Watch us ROAR the Week of August 29, 2022

ONE DISTRICT

Did you know that the revenue from the football program actually powers much of we can do in athletics district wide? This is why it important to show your support on Football Fridays along with all sports events. Support creates greater opportunities for our children.


One Anniston. One District. One Gulfport.

FRONT OFFICE

Forgotten Lunchboxes, Gym Shoes, Etc

Our front office is one of the busiest locations of our school. ALL students have free breakfast and lunch during the designated times. If your child forgets their lunch box, we will ensure they are fed. If a student does not have the right shoes for gym they will not be able to participate.


We serve nearly 600 children and forgotten materials really hinder the efficiency of the front desk.

TARDIES

Attendance Promotes Excellence

We want and need for your child(ren) to attend each day. We strive for 100 percent each day. Please help your children arrive by 7:30am each day and minimize the number of check outs. We stop serving breakfast at 7:25am to ensure students are in class on time.


Chronic absenteeism or tardiness could lead to home visits and or a request for updated proofs of residency.

It Takes a Village: Terrific Kid

We want to thank our local organizations who pour into our students and support achievement and excellence. Each month the Kiwanis Organization of Gulfport recognizes our Terrific Kids district wide. Here are ours!

TRANSPORTATION NEWS

Arrival and Dismissal

Please be mindful of students as they are walking and waiting on the bus in the mornings. Our number one priority is safety always.

Changes in Transportation

Changes in transportation must be performed in writing with the name of your child(ren), your name, contact information and date. You can email changes to Mrs. Millie Treadaway at millie.treadaway@gulfportschools.org. Please do so before noon.

Bus Transportation

We want to encourage our students to do what is right on the bus. Being mindful of our volume, sitting down and facing forward is very important to the safe transport of our students. First infraction is a warning but future infractions are suspensions from the bus for 3, 5, 10, 15 days respectively. We know our parents depend on buses for attendance but we have to support the safety of all.
