Greetings G. H. Reid Families!
We have had an amazing start this school year and we thank you all so much for making our beginning a success! I just want to send a few reminders:
1. The G. H. Reid Back to School Night is Tuesday, September 20, 2022 from 5:00pm-7:00pm. This is an opportunity for you to meet your child's teacher(s), learn a few updates about what's happening this school year, and to mix and mingle with our community. Please come out and support.
2. Our school hours are from 7:45am to 2:45pm. We open the doors for our students at 7:30am so that they can eat breakfast and get their day started in their classrooms. Please make sure your students report on time each day. Our instructional day actually begins at 7:45am. Students are tardy after 8:15am and will have missed 30 minutes of school time. It is imperative that they get to school on time and remain for a full day of learning. Anytime prior to 2:45pm is considered an early dismissal. We stop early dismissals at 2:30pm.
3. For the safety of our students and staff, please use the front door (main entrance) only. We keep all of our doors locked throughout the day. Please ring the bell and someone will happily assist you.
4. 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be taking the Virginia Growth Assessments beginning tomorrow, Monday, September 19, 2022. It is imperative that our students are present and on time. This assessment will be given 3 times this school year as mandated by the state of Virginia.
As always we thank each of you for your continuous support. EVERYTHING you do is greatly appreciated!!!! Our students are worth whatever it takes!!!
Looking forward to seeing you soon!!!
