If your student will not ride a school bus to school, please adhere to this student drop off/pick up plan:
Georgetown Primary School will offer two different types of arrival and dismissal procedures on a daily basis. Chesapeake Public Schools offers free bus transportation for all students who are currently enrolled at Georgetown Primary. If you DO NOT wish to take advantage of this service, you may choose to transport your child to and from school through Kiss & Ride. Please contact your child’s teacher if you wish to utilize the Kiss & Ride service.
KISS & RIDE
Parents who will be dropping off/picking up their child(ren) each day, are asked to utilize the Kiss & Ride procedures. Vehicles will enter through the back parking lot entrance. Parents will circle around to the Kiss & Ride zone where a staff member will open and close your car door to allow your child(ren) to exit the vehicle. GTP staff will then direct your child into the building. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all children coming through Kiss & Ride must wear a face mask, covering their nose and mouth, prior to exiting their vehicle. Unfortunately, GTP staff will not be able to physically assist your child with getting in and out of the vehicle. Parents must provide physical assistance to children when exiting or entering their vehicle, if assistance is needed.
To support our students and their families, the Department of Elementary Teaching and Learning created scheduling guidelines for online learning. Click here to learn more about our online learning daily schedule and expectations.
Hello GTP families,
We have the opportunity again this year for a FREE thermometer for each of our GTP families, through the Kinsa program. It’s a quality, simple to use thermometer. I hope each family will take advantage of this opportunity. When you sign up with Kinsa, you will NOT get any spam. They don’t share your information.
Parents text FLUENCYSCHOOL to 900900 to place themselves on the wait list for a free smart thermometer.
In early September, parents on the wait list will receive a text that invites them to download the Kinsa app and officially sign up for their free smart thermometer!
A few common questions:
- What is the benefit for parents who place themselves on the wait list?
These parents receive an early text from us that invites them to sign up first for their free thermometers when the thermometer order window opens in early September!
- What about the parents who miss the opportunity to join the wait list?
No worries! Parents who miss the wait list will still be able to sign up for their free smart thermometers in September.
- If got a thermometer last year, can I order again? Yes! First time and repeats are all welcome. I would love for every GTP family to order a thermometer for the 20-21 school year. Virtual families too!!!
Best wishes for a healthy year!
