  • Reminder about Inclement Weather...

    If GCPS has a Digital Learning Day due to inclement weather, students who would normally have a session are expected to visit my Google Classroom page and complete the assignment. The assignment is typically posted in the announcements section and should take no more than 15 minutes. 

  • If you have speech/language concerns...

     The first step is contacting your grade level counselor to set up a Student Support Team (SST) meeting. From there, a representative from the speech/language team will meet with parents, teachers, and the counselor to discuss how we can best support your child. The process is tailored to each individual student's needs.
