Our School Day at Gordon Creek Elementary
NO SCHOOL March 16-April 19, 2020
We miss you!
School Begins at 9:00 AM. School Dismisses at 3:20 PM.
Arrival 8:55-9:05 AM
Students may be dropped off between 8:55-9:05 AM. Only breakfast students may be dropped off prior to 8:55 but no earlier than 8:50 AM and must be walked across the crosswalk by a parent/guardian. Students should not walk unattended across the crosswalk. Buses unload at 9:00 AM. Staff will be in the parking lot to supervise students from 8:55 AM until 9:05 AM. Students that arrive after 9:05 AM are considered tardy and should be walked into the main office by a parent/guardian. For safety reasons, students will exit the vehicle at the designated cones only and on the passenger side of the vehicle to avoid traffic. Students should not walk unattended through the parking lot. Thank you for your support in keeping our students safe.
Dismissal - 3:20 PM
If your student is being picked up during or after school, please send a note in to school with your student.
Students who are absent from school, upon return, will need a note from a parent/guardian stating the reason for the absence.
During the winter months, students will be going outside for recess when weather permits. Please make sure your student comes to school with the proper clothing.
Hoping that this finds all of you well and finding some degree of routine in this otherwise unpredictable time. As promised in our last communication to you, this is an update on our status as of today
