4K Pre-Registration begins January 16, 2018. To be considered, children must turn four-years-old on or before September 1, 2018. Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center UNTIL MARCH 2, 2018. Pre-registration will NOT be accepted after March 2. Children do not have to live in the school attendance area to pre-register at that location. Pre-registration does not guarantee enrollment in a GCS 4K program. Children selected for 4K programs must demonstrate academic/developmental needs and/or risk factors such as low family income and low parent education level. Screened children will be ranked district-wide and those most at-risk for school success will receive initial assignments. Notification of 4K acceptance will be mailed to parents late March 2018. PLEASE NOTE: 4K screenings will be held for pre-registered children March 14-16, 2018.
Seasonal Health Tips
In an effort to decreaae the spread of illness at school, the school district woud like to remind you of the following:
1. Check your child for flu symtoms. Keep your child home if he/she has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher. Children with flu will need to stay home until the fever is gone for 24 hours without taking medicines to reduce fever.
2. If your student has diarrhea, they must be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school. Diarrhea is defined as 3 or more episodes of loose stool in a 24 hour period.
3. A student must not come to school if vomiting 2 or more times in 24 hours. A student should have 1 or 2 meals wthout vomiting before returning to school.
4. Practice frequent hand washing and covering your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze at home and school.
