Dear GES Families:

Recently we have questions concerning when to stay home, get tested, and return to school. Attached is A Parent’s Guide to help answer your questions. Also, it is extremely important to have emergency contact information up-to-date. Please call or email our office if you have any changes in phone numbers, address or your emergency contact person. GES office number 524-1661 or ges@sau73.org.

Flu clinic tomorrow! We had an overwhelming number of families sign up for the school flu clinic this year (over 80).  We are going to do our best to get everyone vaccinated on Friday.

Halloween Update:

Unfortunately, Gilford public safety officials suggest that the exchange of candy and get-togethers for costume displays be limited to small family gatherings with social distancing and cloth masks. Based on this information, we decided not to hold our annual Halloween parade. However, if you would like to share a photo of your child in their Halloween costume, we will put together a video and send it out to families. Send photos to my attention, dbolduc@sau73.org by October 30th.  It is our hope that many community events and celebrations will return to normal in 2021, but in the meantime, please be safe.
