We'd like to give you information about the exchange of materials scheduled for June 1st - 4th. Our goal is to provide a one-stop, safe, seamless, and efficient process to return all student items left in the building at closure and collect all items such as district-issued Chromebooks, chargers, textbooks, and library books. We have created a schedule for return of personal items (which can also be found on social media). Your child has been assigned by homeroom teacher to a 45-minute window of time. We ask that parents arrive as close to the beginning to this window of time as possible. To assist with the location of your child's items left in the school, please complete the Materials Collection & Return form by Friday, May 15th.
Grade level teachers will be on campus during their assigned day for a "wave-off" to our students for the summer. Although it is not the send-off we had hoped for, we are all so excited to see our Wildcats one more time this school year. We miss them so much! Parents with two or more children may choose ONE window of time for the exchange of materials; however, if your child wishes to see his/her teachers, they will need to come on their assigned grade-level day. Please keep in mind that parents and students will be required to remain in their cars on these days.
Fees for missing and damaged items will be assessed on this day. We will do our very best to communicate those amounts to you ahead of time. Keep in mind that students must returned their district-issued Chromebook and charger. Replacement chargers purchased outside of GCS requirements may not be substituted for return. For more information, visit the GCS Personalized Learning Handbook for Schools.
End-of-year Awards are being handled by grade level teams this year. Your child's teachers will be communicating to you information about the day/time/format for these awards. Medallions, certificates, and other awards will be included in the items bundled with your child's belongings on their assigned day for materials exchange. We are excited to be able to celebrate our 2019-20 students one last time!
Orange Sky field trip refunds have been processed and were mailed on Monday of this week. These amounts were based upon a spreadsheet provided to us from Orange Sky. We have since been made aware that these amounts did not include funds raised by chocolate sales, and we are now working to resolve that issue as well. We have also learned that the addresses provided may not have included apartment/unit numbers. Any checks returned to us in the mail will be reprocessed and sent back out next week. Thank you for your patience. Please know that it is not our intention to withhold any funds due back to you! I will communicate to all families involved as soon as we have know next steps.
The last day for eLearning assignments is Friday, May 29th. Just three more weeks to go! We can do this, Wildcats! Even during these times apart...together, we are still #woodmontrising.
