Emergency Contact Information Entered into IC by Parents

As we wrap-up the current school year, we are preparing for the start of the 2019/2020 school year in August. All student registration will be completed by parents/guardians online via the Infinite Campus (IC) Parent Portal. We will no longer be using paper Emergency Contact cards. Emergency contact information will be entered into the IC Parent Portal by parents/guardians. You can enter this Emergency contact information now for the 2019/2020 school year. If we are unable to reach a parent or guardian, the next contact will be your designated emergency contact. An emergency contact is someone who does not live in your household. The emergency contact could be a relative, a friend, or a co-worker.

Medication at School

Just a quick reminder, if your child currently has medication that is administered at or stored at school, please pick up the medication no later than May 30, 2019 from the Health Office.  Medications may not be kept at school through the summer. Any medication that is not picked up will be disposed of per district policy, including Inhalers and Epipens. If you have any questions please contact Connie coliver@gilpin.k12.co.us.
