Reminders: No School Monday; Early Release Tuesday
As noted in the January 2017 Parent Letter from Mrs. Duncan,
Monday, January 16, 2017 is a Holiday to observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day and a WCPSS Teacher Workday.
Tuesday, January 17, 2017 will be an Early Release Day. The GFCC staff will attend a Teacher workshop on this day. GFCC Staff Policy requires our teachers to attend at least three workshops in the field of education.
We are a member of the Association of Early Childhood Professionals (AECP), which is a group of 20+ preschools. The AECP sets up workshops for about 80-150 teachers to attend a workshop each month. Most of these workshops are held at Greenwood Forest Baptist Church (GFBC) and begin around 1:15.
Therefore, parents will need to pick up children early on these days. This safety procedure will allow the GFCC parking lot to be cleared before teachers from other schools arrive at GFBC for the workshop.
Classroom teachers will notify parents of the time of the Early Release as well as other details related to the dismissal.
