New Policy

Please remember to send a written excuse to school when your child is absent in order for the absence to be excused. Students are marked as tardy if they arrive after 8:15 or check out before 3:15. Parent notes are also required if a tardy is to be excused. Excessive unexcused absences and/or tardiness are reported to the GCS Truancy Board. Please try to schedule all doctors’ appointments outside the school day whenever possible. The newly adopted GCS Board Policy on attendance/excused absences allows for only 3 parent notes per semester. Good attendance is essential for school success.
