Dress Code Policy
The dress and grooming of our students should contribute to the health and safety of the individual, promote a positive educational environment and not disrupt the educational activities and processes of the school. Gamble Rogers Middle School follows the school district’s dress code guidelines explained in the 23-24 Student Code of Conduct
GRMS will be a progressive school in which students are prepared to achieve at their highest level, preparing them for college and career, surrounded by an engaged community that is proud of its educational accomplishments.
From The Front Office
All items (clothes, shoes, monies, keys, books, etc.) Must Be In A Bag (except band instruments, homework and lunch boxes) labeled with the student’s name and grade.
Thank you for your help with this!
If you need to take your student out of school early, the latest time that he/she can be picked up is at 1:20PM (12:20PM on Wednesdays). Only parents, guardians, or other individuals identified on the student’s contact list, with appropriate identification, will be allowed to check-out the student.
Stingray families — Parents will not be permitted to drop off food from outside sources to their student during the school day. This includes all fast food/restaurant meals.
It is imperative that parents call the school to change home phone numbers, cell numbers, work numbers and email addresses as soon as they are changed. In an emergency situation, it is difficult to contact parents when the information provided is not correct. Please contact Ms. Greve with changes.
Tdap immunization is required for all 7th graders
Proof of this immunization on the DH 680 form can be brought to the front office, faxed (904-547-8715), or emailed to Ms. Greve even if your student is still in 6th grade. Per district policy, all 7th grade students are required to submit an updated DH 680 form to include Tdap prior to the start of 7th grade. Failure to provide updated immunization records will delay your child’s start date.
