Student Drivers need to request a Student Parking Permit. Once approved, students will be sent a link to purchase their permit. Once payment is received, students will be issued a permit.
Family Portal: Please be certain to log into your Family Portal account (GCS School Code is GC-NC). This important resource contains lesson plans, homework, grades, calendars, forms and report cards. GCS also has an app (Apple or Android) that is extremely helpful in finding out information and linking to the Family Portal.
Absences: Please notify the Health & Wellness Team (919-774-4415 or firstname.lastname@example.org) by 8:30am when your child is going to be absent. A written note explaining the reason for the absence and the date(s) is required upon your child’s return. Parents are requested to keep their child home when he/she is sick. Children must be kept home when they have symptoms such as elevated temperature (100 degrees or more), rash, vomiting, excessive nasal discharge, or diarrhea. Students must be symptom free for 24 hours without fever reducing agents (Tylenol) prior to returning to school. See the Parent & Student Handbook for policies and procedures regarding student medications. Every effort to schedule all health care (medical, dental, etc…) appointments are to be made outside of regular school hours.
Volunteers & Chaperones: Volunteers are an integral part of a successful year at GCS. Throughout the year requests will be made for volunteers. It is important for volunteers to realize they are acting as Christian role models for the students by demonstrating maturity in actions, attitudes, and dress. Watch for notices on volunteer needs as the year progresses.
Dress Code: As parents, it is your responsibility to enforce the school dress code. Please be familiar with the code as it is written in the Parent/Student Handbook.
Parent Alert is an automated communication system that is used to provide parents with instructions in the event of a school wide emergency. Parent Alert communications may come in the form of an email, text message or voice mail. The emergency alert system has the capability of calling all emergency contacts within a short window of time.
Contacting Your Child’s Teacher: Messages can be delivered to the teachers through the school office (919-774-4415). You may also email your child’s teacher. Teachers are to respond to emails and messages in a timely fashion. Please remember that the teacher’s first priority is always the supervision of their students.
