CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
Dear GMMS Parents/Guardians, Please be aware that your child was sent home today with an important information concerning the water supply at the Middle School. We ask that please review that information. Even though there was no issue with the sinks and water fountains that provide water to our staff and students for handwashing, drinking and other purposes, there was issue with one sink in the Main Office. That sink is located in an isolated area and is not accessible or used by students. In an abundance of caution, however, water coolers and hand sanitizers have been placed throughout the building for hydration and sanitization purposes. In addition, all building water access points have been sealed and closed to avoid any possible contamination. This includes the kitchen facilities as well. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Marmolejos at the middle school, extension 204.
The district has switched to a new database system as of the 2016-17 school year. This new system replaces many older systems including the Honeywell Instant Alert system. It is important that all parents and guardians login to the new system to update their phone numbers and email addresses to prevent their missing important alerts from the school . . including school closures or emergencies. Please click the title above to be taken to a webpage designed to help walk you through updating this information.
Fall is in the air, but the mosquitoes are still here! Protect yourself and your family from mosquito-borne viruses by practicing the 3 D’s of mosquito control: Drain, Dress, and Defend. DRAIN standing water from containers around your yard to eliminate mosquito breeding. DRESS to cover your skin by wearing long sleeves and pants when possible. DEFEND yourself by using EPA-approved insect repellent. If you are TRAVELING in the near future, learn where Zika is active before you go. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, contact your physician. Protect you and your partner from Zika. For more information, visit the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website at www.cdc.gov/zika, or the New Jersey Department of Health website at www.nj.gov/health/cd/zika, or call the New Jersey 24/7 Zika Call Center at 1-800-962-1253. Thank you! From the Warren County Health Department at www.co.warren.nj.us/healthdept or at (908) 475-7960.
