• How do I sign my child / children up for the Before or After School program?

    Posted by:

    An application can be obtained from the elementary school front office, After School, or from the elementary school website (It will be located under the After School tab -- enrollment forms). Completed applications can be sent to the elementary school via three different ways: (1) through your child's planner, (2) fax to 731-783-3778 to the attention of After School, or (3) email to wilsonk@gcssd.org. Applications will be accepted at the elementary school only. A completed application must be filled out for each child entering either program before attending. Families with multiple children need only to fill out one application and include all siblings on that form.

  • What are the age ranges?

    Posted by:

    A child must be five (5) years of age and Kindergarten registered to start.  The program goes through the age of twelve (12).  If your child / children turns thirteen (13) during a school year term, they complete the term, but cannot start the next one.

    Before school (also called Morning school) begins at 6:10 am and goes through 7:05 am.  After school starts when children are dismissed from the school day and closes promptly at 5:30 pm.  A late fee will be charged at the rate of $1.00/minute for every minute you are late picking up your child / children.
