Please note that this is not a parent and teacher conference time.  Those meetings will be scheduled later in November.  This is also a parent only evening.   


This is a great time of the year to review all of your contact information and make the necessary adjustments in SchoolBrains.  You can access and edit your information through the parent portal.  If you need assistance logging in to the portal, please contact Betty Bennett, bbennett@gdrsd.org for help.


This week’s COVID safety checks came back with all negative results.  We continue to test more than 300 students and staff in an effort to keep our school community healthy and safe.


Our school has 2 filtered water bottle filling stations available to students and staff.  Send your student to school with a refillable water bottle and they can have fresh water to drink throughout the day.


The morning parent drop off and afternoon parent pick up have been working smoothly these past weeks.  Thank you to all for your support with both of these processes.


Last call for gently used clothes donations to Catie’s Closet.  Our GD high school Volunteer’s Club has collection bins in our front lobby for any donations.  They will pick them up on Friday, 10/1.


Have a nice weekend!
