Attention Gurdon School District Parents and Staff: Due to the threat of probable inclement weather tonight and in the morning, Gurdon schools and offices will be closed for onsite instruction tomorrow, Thursday, February 11th. We will pivot to Virtual / AMI instruction instead. The Virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences will continue as scheduled from 3 - 7 p.m. An announcement will be made tomorrow evening regarding Friday. Stay warm and safe!
Gurdon School District is using a new alert system that sends out text messages and or phone calls to the contact numbers we have for our students. A TEST message/call was made a few minutes ago. If you did NOT receive this text and/or call and have a student in our school district, please contact your school office to make sure we have accurate contact information for you. This system will be used for messages regarding school closures and other important messages / reminders. Thank you.
CMS Principal, Amanda Jones, was one of several Gurdon staff to receive her 2nd Covid vaccine today. More will follow over the next few weeks. Thank you again to Baptist Hospital for making sure our educators are vaccinated!
Parent-Teacher Conferences are this Week! You should be getting communication from your child's school regarding the PTC schedule this week for Thursday from 3 - 7 p.m. We will be in school on Thursday and Friday, with early dismissal on Thursday at 2:30 due to PTC. Friday was originally a day off on our calendar, but had to be added back due to the postponement of the August school start date by one week. We will have Virtual Wednesday this week, as usual. Also, please remember that no Valentine's Day deliveries to students will be accepted at the schools. Please enjoy the holiday and celebrate together at home this weekend. Our local businesses have some great items for home delivery or pick-up. Please give them your business!
