Message from the Principal

Gilcrest In-Person Families,
School starts at 8:00.  All students will enter through the main entrance and can arrive as early as 7:45 (no earlier).  We WILL NOT have the typical recess before school.  Upon arrival on school grounds, students should proceed directly to the main entrance.
- Parents/Guardians are not allowed in the building unless there has been an appointment made and approved through the GES office. There will be a drop off/pick up container at the front entrance for items like forgotten lunches.
