iPad Update

iPad Update (8/26/14): 

Only families who have not yet set up Apple IDs need to come to the following evenings in our school. We cannot proceed with iPad distribution and training until Apple IDs have been established by parents for their students. Because of this requirement, we are postponing deployment until we have an Apple ID for each child. Staff will be on hand from 5:30-7:30 PM each of the following nights to assist with Apple ID creation. Parents can also come to a night at a different school if it fits their schedule. Before deployment can take place, all families will need to create an Apple ID for their child

Apple ID Setup Night Schedule
Thursday August 28 - GES 4th and 5th grade only
Tuesday September 2 - RES
Wednesday September 3 - BES
Thursday September 4 - GMS
Monday, September 8, GES 3rd grade

Parent Volunteer Information

Parents who plan to volunteer in the classroom or attend/chaperone school-sponsored field trips must have a background check on file.  These background checks do not need to be completed every year.  The background checks are good for as long as the parent is an active GCPS volunteer.

Parents can stop by the GCPS Central Office on Thursday, August 28, September 4 or September 11 from 8-10 AM to have a background check done without an appointment.  Requests for other dates and times will be by appointment only.  Parents can or call (804-556-5603) the GCPS Human Resources Specialist, Demetra Harris, to schedule a time.

Off to Great Start!
