We must receive and process a new application before Monday, September 17, 2018 or your child/children will be charged full price for meals. It may take a few days to process your form and you will be responsible for all charges until your application is approved and information has transferred to the local school.

School lunches cost $2.25 in Elementary Schools and $2.50 in Middle and High Schools. Breakfast cost is $1.50 at all schools, where available.

Put ALL your children's names on one application form . This means elementary, middle and high school student names should be listed on the same form. Completing more than one form may delay your approval.

You may reapply online at the following Website:

Please note that your online application may take 1 to 2 days for approval. Additionally, application forms are available at all local schools.

Fall Community Physicals are Tuesday, October 9th from 6-7:30 PM in the Commons and Auxiliary gym. Any HS athlete wishing to tryout for a Winter or Spring sport must have a current physical and insurance in order to participate in tryouts. If you need a physical for a youth league or middle school, bring your paperwork and we can do those as well. SportsMedSouth and Dr. Levengood’s staff will be present to do the evaluations. Cost is $20.

Parents should register for the PARENT PORTAL and stay informed about student attendance and academic performance in the classroom.
Access to the Parent Portal moves with students from school to school, therefore re-registration is not required once completed. This is true as long as a student remains enrolled in a GCPS school. Leaving and returning to GCPS requires a new registration.
Parent Portal registration must be done in person at the school the student attends. This requires a photo ID and the person registering must be a legal, designated parent/guardian of the student. The registration form is available to download and print.
