February and March Letter

Dear GES Families,
The second semester is off to a great start and spring is just around the corner! We have a lot to look forward to and so many plans to make. Please read ahead for information about February and March.

Family Bingo Nights & Scholastic Book Fair
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who attended our family bingo nights and Scholastic book fair last week! We hosted over 1,000 students and family members over 3 nights for our bingo event, and our book fair raised $5,200 to support our library offerings for students. We could not have done it without you! We hope you enjoyed your time with us. This is OUR school, and we want you to feel welcome here. We truly appreciate your support, and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone last week. We hope to see you again next year! 

School Day Begins at 9:00am
Please remember that the school day does not begin until 9:00am. Many students are being dropped at the front doors prior to 8:30am, and there is no one to supervise these students. Please do not drop your students at the front doors prior to 8:40am. This is for their safety. Thank you so much for your help with this!

Calamity Days:
Each year, Ohio schools are afforded 5 calamity days for bad weather. “Delay days” are not included in this count. After our 5th calamity day, students will be expected to complete work on their iPads through either the Canvas Learning Management System (grades 3 & 4) or Seesaw (grades K-2). If you have any questions about how to maneuver these applications, please speak with your child or his/her teacher.

Student Absences:  As you know, we take attendance very seriously at every grade level throughout the Greenville City Schools district. Missing even one day denies children of very important routines and instruction that are vital to academic achievement, especially in the area of reading in the early grades. While we do not want children to come to school when they are sick, many absences occur outside of illness. All absences, including late arrivals and early pick-ups, are tracked in hours and minutes by our internal attendance system. As administrators, we are charged with following up when absence hours reach thresholds established by district policy. 
 Once absences reach 35 hours, a letter is sent home informing parents that the first threshold     has been met. These letters are sent again once the 65-hour threshold has been met. It is   normally after 65 hours that you will be asked to attend a meeting with your child’s principal.  The purpose of these meetings is to look closely at the pattern of attendance to investigate the   causes of the absences and determine how it can be remedied by working together. It is only   when our requests for meetings are not met or attendance does not improve that we refer to   the juvenile court system. Please know that we will do everything on our end to help with   these issues, but setting expectations for solid attendance and achievement starts at home. It is   expected that students be at school every day possible. We appreciate your help with this very   important matter.
