Dear Gubser Parents:
Our office support hours have been cut significantly in
recent years. Two years ago we lost our
School Based Health Assistant position.
This fall our Office Specialist position was cut by two hours. Therefore, we now have 20 less hours per week
of support. In order to adapt to these cuts
and continue to offer great service to you and your student(s), we are asking
for your support this upcoming school year with the following:
We will use e-mail as
a means of communicating with families more frequently. This will include
such things as the monthly newsletter, notices, and updates. Please make sure that you keep your e-mail
address current. If you do not
have e-mail, please let the office know.
We recommend that you make a “Gubser” folder in your file cabinet so you
can refer back to items sent home when you have questions.
We ask that families
familiarize themselves with the Gubser website and use this tool to access
calendar information, school, and community activities. Many of the flyers and information that used
to go home in student backpacks, will be uploaded to the website and will also
be available in the school lobby. All of
this information will be under “Parent Resources” on the website: gubser.salemkeizer.net
We ask that families
email teachers with questions and concerns directly in lieu of calling the
office and leaving a message. The office
also utilizes the email system to pass your message on to staff members, so
this will remove the “middle man”. The
Gubser website has the email address of all the teachers.
Please do not drop
your student off before 8:45. Adult
supervision is provided in front of the school at 8:45. Students who eat breakfast will be allowed
into the building at 8:45; all other students are allowed in at 9:00. We encourage students to arrive at 9:00-9:10
to alleviate front porch overcrowding.
Students will no
longer turn their cell phones into the office. Cell phones will be kept in student backpacks
and turned off when they get to school.
Per the Elementary Handbook, “The district does not take responsibility
for students’ personal items being either lost or stolen.”
students or checking students out, ID will be required. This is for the safety of our students and for
our office staff who are not familiar with all the families. Please have your ID ready each time you enter
We need students
picked up after school by 3:40. After
3:40 students will be brought into the front lobby. For student safety: If you arrive after 3:40,
you will be asked to sign out your student in the office.
Please do not check
your student out after 3:15. If your
student has an appointment and needs to leave school early, please check them
out before 3:15. Student check outs will
not be permitted between 3:15 and 3:30.
Please call the
office prior to 3:15 to minimize classroom interruptions if you would like
a message sent to your child. Messages
are delivered to classrooms at 3:15.
Please communicate after school child care arrangements with your
student before they leave for school as much as possible.
Thank you for your support! We appreciate it!!!
