Principal's Message

August 2019

Hello Gryphon Families,

We are only a few days from the first day of the 19/20 school year.  As promised in my last communication, here is some very important information about drop-off and pick-up and the proper etiquette of our parking lot.

Our parking lot flows in ONE direction—Enter on Main Branch and exit on South Monarch.  DO NOT exit onto Main Branch Rd.
If you come from Bollinger (turning right into the parking lot):

  • DO NOT stop in the right lane on Main Branch and allow your kids to get out of the car.
  • DO NOT “cut in line.”  Everyone is waiting their turn, so please be courteous.
  • DO NOT use the left (second) lane to turn into the parking lot.
  • If you are dropping your children off on Main Branch (past the school entrance) please pull up as far as possible.

From Main Branch (turning left into the parking lot):

  • Please be cognizant of the person with the STOP SIGN.
  • DO NOT begin turning left until you have a clear path to enter into the parking lot.
  • And above all else, please drive slowly once you enter the parking lot.  We would rather have your child late to class than for someone to get hit by your car.

Other important information:

  • Class schedules for all students will be available through the Parent Portal starting at 2:00 pm on Monday.  They will also be available in the MPR on Tuesday morning starting at 7:30am
  • Parents are not allowed on campus, so please drop them off at the gates--I promise we will take good care of them!
  • Tuesday is a minimum day.  School begins at 8:15am and dismissal is 11:49am.

I am thrilled to begin another year at Gale Ranch and I look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones!

Warm regards,

Sue Goldman, Principal
