END OF DAY RELEASE PROCEDURES

In order to ensure that students are following staff directives and to further facilitate student safety, we have changed the end-of-day release. Our new procedures are as follows:

·               All students who participate in extra-curricular activities, walk home, or are picked up from school will be dismissed at 3:25 p.m. 
 
·               Students who ride a bus home from school are to stay with their ninth hour teacher until an announcement is made that their bus has arrived.  
 
Please know that students are being monitored so that they have enough time to go to their lockers, get their materials and get to their buses on time.  We appreciate your support in relation to these new procedures.



GMS PBIS News

Act Like a Titan Tuesdays in April 
The data shows we have more referrals on Tuesday and Wednesday, so the PBIS team decided to be proactive and challenge the students to bring those numbers down!  If we see that referrals have gone down, students will be given an out of the blue social time. 
Please stay tuned for updates!


PBIS UPDATE: Wow!! Act Like a Titan Tuesday brought the number of referrals down by 50%!  Kudos to the Social Studies department for providing an out of the blue to reward our students!

 

Stop the tardies!  Data shows that many students are tardy 1st and 8th hours. We will be reteaching/rebooting the 7th graders on April 17th to remind students of the ‘Get to class on time’ expectation.  Stay tuned!

 

SWAT Update:  Survey shows that GMS students can answer the following questions:  What should you do if you feel that someone is not respecting you?  What should you do if someone tells you to stop?  What should you do if you see someone else who is not being respected by another student?
