Q & A
Can I call or send an email to change my child's transportation home?
We cannot accept transportation changes over the phone or by email. Send in a written note with your child the morning you want her/him to be a car rider and we will take care of those arrangements for you. Please include the name of your child, your child’s teacher and a phone number to reach you if necessary.
How do I get my child’s teacher email address?
All school employees have the same ending to their email address: @gm.sbac.edu. Email addresses are listed on our Faculty and Staff page.
I need to speak to my child’s teacher. Can I come in early one morning and go to the classroom?
Mornings are busy times for our teachers as they are preparing for the school day, so please call or email your child’s teacher to arrange a convenient time to meet with her/him. Remember to include your phone number in the email. In the event that you do not have email access, the front office staff will be happy to take a message from you and send it to the teacher. NOTE: Teachers have 24 hours to respond to parent emails and phone calls.
I want to visit my child’s classroom. Do I need to check in the front office first?
Unexpected visitors can be disruptive to the learning environment, therefore we ask that you refrain from visiting the classroom unless you have made arrangements with the teacher. If arrangements are made, you will check in.
My child has a 3:30 dentist appointment. Can I check her out at 2:45?
The latest time to check out a student is 2:30.
My child’s birthday is today. Can I bring in cupcakes, balloons and goodie bags?
As stated in the Parent/Student Handbook, birthday parties are not allowed at school, however, cupcakes or cookies may be provided for a treat at lunch. Please email or call your child’s teacher, in advance, to let her/him know you are bringing in a treat. Unless other arrangements are made with the teacher, you may bring in the treat and leave it in the front office or take it to the cafeteria and eat lunch with your child. We will notify the teacher and she/he will come get it at her/his convenience.
