GKMS Families,

I hope you and your families are doing well.  I would like to thank all of the families for your continued support.  Please continue to encourage your students to engage in Remote Learning.  Students who have earned a “P”(Pass) on all of their assignments on Thursday, May 14th will essentially be done for the school year.  Students who have “I”(Incompletes) will have until Friday, May 22nd to complete their assignments and change their “I”(Incomplete) assignments to “P”(Pass).  

Chromebook Drop Off/Locker Item Pick Up May 26-29:  8-3pm all days

During the week of May 26-29 students will be able to pick up all of their personal items that were left in their lockers and PE lockers.  We have all personal items bagged up along with an itemized content list for each student.  Chromebooks and chargers must be returned during the student personal item pick up in order to have personal items returned.  Staff will be wearing masks and gloves for everyone’s safety.  Families will remain in their cars during the Chromebook drop off and personal item pick up. Students will also need to return library books and any other items checked out from the school at this time. Families will continue to be contacted if their student has missing/checked out books along with the balance due.   

8th grade students will have the option to purchase their Chromebook for $30 dollars in lieu of returning their Chromebook and charger.  8th grade students who choose to purchase their Chromebook will still turn them in the week of May 26-29 so the Tech Department can wipe the machines clean and restore them to factory default.  8th grade students choosing to purchase their Chromebook will be able to pick them up on or after June 3rd.  

We will be asking families to do their Chromebook Drop Off/Locker Item Pick Up on days that correspond with your student’s last name.  We will be recommending the following dates based on your student’s last name:

May 26th:  Last names A-H May 27th: Last names J-Q

May 28th: Last names R-Z May 29th: Anyone who could not make recommended date

We do have a limited number of extra Yearbooks that may be purchased for $13.  Please contact Michelle Muir at mmuir@gkschools.org if you would like to reserve a copy of the Yearbook to be picked up that week.  We will be selling these on a first come/first serve basis and you must have no outstanding fees in order to purchase.  

As always, please contact me at cbutcher@gkschools.org with any questions.  Take care of yourselves and each other.  We are all in this together! Happy Mother’s Day!

Respectfully,

Craig Butcher

Principal GKMS
