September 2023

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!  I hope this message finds you well rested from an enjoyable summer.  We look forward to seeing our returning four-year-old students as well as the new students who will be joining us this year.  At GPPA 3, we like to think of our students as members of our preschool family, so WELCOME!

As we settle into the school year, we will routinely update information provided on this page.  Please be sure to check into the Parent Portal regularly.  In addition to portal updates, you should expect email blasts, robocalls, and can find all upcoming events on our school website and Instagram page.  

Drive up drop off will begin after we feel most students have settled into the school routine.  We anticipate beginning Drive Up Drop Off on September 18th.  Parents still have the option to walk their child to the front entrance of the building.  Dismissal will remain the same as last year, with parents entering the school building to sign their child out of school for the day.  YMCA before and aftercare begins on September 11th.  You must make prior arrangements, including payment arrangements, with the YMCA prior to beginning these services.

Please review the documents in the Portal.  Some of our beginning of the year forms are in the portal and must be completed at the start of the school year.  Please be mindful to complete the Family Home Survey, as this is in place of the lunch application form.  As you know, GPPA 3 is one of the school buildings that has qualified for free breakfast and lunch.  The Family Home Survey is what allows up to receive the grant each year.

Please pay close attention to the illness policy.  If you have any health related questions or concerns, please contact our school nurse, Ms. Puzio, at your convenience.  

Finally, please know that we are here to help you in any way needed while you navigate the first few weeks of school.    If you should need any assistance, big or small, please do not hesitate to contact me.  

Once again, welcome to GPPA 3!  My faculty and staff are dedicated and looking forward to working with you as we prepare for a fun and exciting school year ahead.  On behalf of the entire GPPA 3 family, we wish you and your child a happy, healthy, productive school year! 

All the best,

Valerie Stewart
Principal, GPPA 3
