Zebulon Gifted & Talented Magnet Middle School Parents,
First, we want to welcome our new students and families to ZGTMMS and welcome back all returning students and families. 2018-19 is going to be a GREAT school year!
Parents, a few reminders. The school day starts at 8:15 and doors are open to students at 7:45am. Carpool is located in the back parking lot. Students arriving after 8:15 are considered tardy and must be checked in by a parent in the main office. Agendas will be distributed to students once they arrive.
The school day ends at 3:00pm and the staggered dismissal process begins. Walkers and students riding carpool will be dismissed first. Bus riding students will be dismissed once their bus arrives on campus. We are asking for your patience during the first week of school as we work closely with transportation to get kids to and from school safely.
Our daily schedule has been adjusted so that students have 6 classes; three electives each quarter and 3 core classes each semester. ELA and Math are year-long and Science and Social Studies will alternate semesters. This provides extended time in core classes and less courses to focus on at one time. There may be some adjustments in individual student schedules to ensure that your student has the best student experience.
Over the next several days, your child will receive start-of-school year documents for you to read and sign. We are asking you to complete this task as quickly as possible. Also, please ensure that you sign up to receive School Messenger text and emails so that you can receive weekly updates.
We are looking forward to seeing our awesome students bright and early tomorrow morning. Go Cougars!
