If you are coming to school to eat lunch with your child or other short term visits, please use the visitor parking spots or other available parking areas.  Do not park by the curb or in the middle of the parking lots during the school day.  We need these areas open for safety reasons and for parents to drop off and pick up their children


Volunteering at GM school:

The volunteering policy is now on the school website in two places:  District quick links and Parent links

There are two key points of the policy. 1. If you are going on a field trip away from the school you need to have an application and current background check on file 2.  If you are coming to the school to be a classroom helper or similar volunteer you do not need to have a background check completed

The specifics are listed in the volunteer policy on the webpage.  Please take a few minutes to review the policy if you plan to volunteer.  Leslie Hendrickson in the Business Office is your contact person to get background checks taken care of.
