Front only dismissal today. The rain has been too sporadic to count on a dry dismissal in the back. Please drive safely!
As of right now (3:03) we are planning to have back gate open at dismissal (3:20) but if the weather turns we may have to be front only. The showers have been very off and on the last hour or so. Thank you for your understanding.
GJM Families, we had our monthly fire drill and just as we went outside the skies opened up! The students and staff did an amazing job of getting out and in safely under the circumstances! Everyone is back in routine and drying off, but we wanted to make sure you are aware of what happened.
Just a reminder that Progress Reports will go home tomorrow (and it's Pickle and Popcorn day!)
Back gate reminder: We always try to have the back gate open to help with traffic, but if it is actively raining, thunder/lightening, or other safety risk it will be a front of school dismissal only. Thanks for your patience yesterday with that sudden weather turn at dismissal!
