SAVE THE DATE – Saturday, June 10th, 2017

Tentatively from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm; subject to change as we firm up event details.  Come out that day with your family and enjoy the fun fair and take a car/SUV/Truck for a test drive and Georgetown Chevrolet will make a cash donation to the school for every test drive.  The money raised at these events goes directly to the enjoyment and wellness of the students at GPS. In the past, we have sponsored the Learning Commons Library Project, Kindergarten Playground Overhaul Project, Technology Upgrades, the Outdoor Classroom Project, AV Upgrades, Supporting Athletics at Events with tents, Supporting Teachers in the Classroom, etc.

Walking students in Grades 1-8 will ALL enter and exit out the back of the school onto the blacktop. Students will be asked to not use any other doors as they exit. We are working to reduce the pedestrian traffic in the high traffic areas. Students are to use the sidewalks along the edges of school property only so they do not need to cross where the majority of the cars are turning. The Town of Halton Hills has created a new crosswalk for this purpose on the west side of the school.Kindergarten students will be dismissed to parents or designate  from their fenced in areas.

Kiss and Ride is to only be used by parents who do not need to leave the car. Please DO NOT PARK in the Kiss and Ride lane. If you would like to take your child right to the kindergarten area please park in the middle parking spots and use the crosswalk markings to go with your child to the sidewalk.

If all walkers walk and all bus students take the bus then we will be able to significantly improve the safety in and around the school at the beginning and end of the day. Thank you for your cooperation in following these routines.

We encourage all of our parents to set up an account on our online Cashless system as we are a Cashless School to pay for all fees and activities for your child. It's quick and easy and you can keep track of all payments made under your account.

Your child will not have to be responsible for bringing in large amounts of cash or cheques to school. School purchases can be made online at The CashlessSchools call centre  is available 24/7 at 1-866-231-3322 and they will be able to assist you in setting up an account.

While "Cashless payment" is the preferred option for all fees and activities, parents/guardians do have the option of paying by cash or by cheque. If you wish to pay by cash or by cheque, please (parents/guardians) bring the exact amount of cash or cheque to the main office accompanied with the completed form that was sent home. Please do not have your child bring it in. A receipt will be issued at that time.
