Typically this bulletin board is created with name tags from Tiger Camp. This year it is being updated as students return. Hopefully next week we will have a few more names.

With each day back at GMS and more students coming each day, the campus is able to review current safety procedures. We have changed practices daily to ensure better safety habits for example how students enter and leave the cafeteria has been changed so that students don't cross paths. I am grateful that AISD has a phased-in approach so that all the kinks can get worked out before we have everyone back on campus. It is much easier to fix a procedure with 100 students than it would be with 100s. In doing this, we can also tell which procedures won't work with 100s of students on campus and are therefore updating those as well.
The district's next phase is to rotate class. As with current procedures, this will probably begin with the current students on campus. This will allow us to make sure GMS maintains the safety guidelines of social distancing, hand washing, and wearing masks. As before, anytime you are ready for your child to return to GMS, send me an email and arrangements will be made to have your child return to school.

If you feel like it is time for your child to be back on campus, just send me an email.
Have a great weekend.

It has been an awesome first week back with students. The safety protocols in place and the amazing GMS teachers have allowed students to feel welcomed, safe, and normal. Every student I have asked loved being back at school.
We have also started football and volleyball.
Love having students back in the building and welcome 7th and 8th graders next week. To celebrate students back on campus, each student went home with a weekend meal. Remember if you would like to receive weekly meals, please visit www.austinisd.org for more details.

As we move into summer, the plan for returning in August isn't clear. It will look different. As I learn what this will look like, I will communicate with you. Please continue to check the different communication formats for GMS.
I leave you with a link of highlights for 2019-2020.
Have a great summer.

Just a reminder that items in the PE lockers are able to be picked up. An email was sent earlier this week with a link. The link must be completed prior to you coming to school.
Thank you all so much for your patience as GMS has worked through this unprecedented situation. Stay safe and hope to see you soon.
