GSMS Spartan Notes

From the Principals

NEW INFORMATION:

GSMS Back to School Night: Thursday, September 13th from 6:45 PM to 8:30 PM.

Cafeteria: a reminder that no food or drink (other than water) should leave the cafeteria.

Exterior Doors: do not ever open a locked exterior door during the school day for anyone, including students. This is a serious safety violation and will result in disciplinary action. The Main Entrance to the Middle School is where all should enter.

"See Something, Say Something" if you see something on social media or at school that is threatening or unsafe or you are worried that someone might get hurt, tell an adult right away. Don't be afraid to tell Mr. Starr or Mr. Good or send an e-mail if you are concerned about your safety or the safety of others. This can be done after school hours as well.
