Week of April 13-17 Closed Week
The corporation will be using state waiver days during this week. Please take advantage of this time by finishing last week’s assignments (feel free to still contact the teachers) or by practicing reading skills (it’s always a good idea to have a great book going!).
If your student is having technical issues with his or her chromebook (or charger), please follow the directions in the GCCS email sent last Friday (the link is also at the bottom of this email). Please leave a message and someone will get back to you. It may not be the same day due to the administration building being closed, however, tech services will get back to you as soon as possible.

We will continue next week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays only from 10:00a.m.-1:00p.m. Children will receive two breakfast and two lunch meals on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Locations for pick-up are Spring Hill Elementary (Added Site), The Mark Fetter Center, Bob Hedge Park, New Washington Middle/High School, Parkwood Elementary and Pleasant Ridge Elementary.
