Parent/Guardian,

All students will be eligible for Free Breakfast and Lunch until September 20.

This period will allow for families to complete registrations. Below is a copy of the message sent in recent weeks, which includes a link to the application. 

Many parents have had Free and Reduced Lunch applications mailed to their residence. According to the district office, you should have already received this correspondence. If not, you may use this link to check for eligibility: https://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/food/free/  This completed application may be turned in at the school office at which point we will send it to the district office. It is important that the form be completed in a timely manner to avoid a gap in your student’s eligibility for assistance.

SCHOOL POLICIES

Mission: 
To create the best learning path for all students. Students understand the value of being engaged in their education as goal-setting, college and career bound questioners, who recognize the value of all learning opportunities.

Overview

Please be aware of the following policies that may affect your student at GRMS during 22-23 school year. View the 22-23 GRMS Parent Information for bell schedule, introductions, etc.

Dress Code

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 22-23 Student Code of Conduct.

Phone Policy

Upon entering the school phones MUST be turned off and stored out of view. Earbuds must be removed to assist students in maintaining academic focus.

Tardies

Expectation: Students are in class on time every class period every day.

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.

Information Changes

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.

Vision:
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

Drop-Off Items

All items (clothes, shoes, homework, monies, keys, books, etc.) Must Be In A Bag (except band instruments and lunch boxes) labeled with the student’s name and grade.
