    GES Reminders...

    * Please have your student practice buckling and unbuckling & opening and closing car doors so that they can LOAD and UNLOAD on the passenger side.  We discourage parents from getting out of the car during carline.

    * Our lunchroom received a grant to provide "cost-free" breakfast for all students.  We encourage all students to go to breakfast now!  Students must be at school before the bell rings to visit breakfast. 

    * Remember that to change transportation plans in ANY way, we must have your changes in writing.  We cannot change transportation over the phone for safety reasons. 

    * Please check your student's backpack and home folder every night.  We have important information coming home regularly. 

    *A Reminder About Check Outs:  All check outs before 11:00 a.m. count as a full-day absence.  This is the case on any school day, including early dismissal days.  Please make every effort to minimize checking in and out as students miss important instruction when they are absent.  Excellent attendance is one of the best ways to help your child be a great student!
    *Don't miss our updates on our website, Facebook and Twitter


    In the event of weather related school closings or delays, we will make calls through our automated phone system, update websites and social media, and alert local news and radio.  Please keep in mind that we are Guntersville City Schools and our plans are not always the same as the county system.
