Dear GCS Family,
As most of you are aware, we were seeing students with signs and symptoms of the flu here at school. We also have had students with confirmed flu diagnoses. In order to prevent the spread of flu and other illnesses, I am asking that you do the following:
- I would ask that you review the CDC information regarding the flu (www.flu.gov). In addition, I would remind you that any student who has signs and symptoms of the flu should stay home. This includes fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater), cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, and feeling very tired. Some people may also vomit or have diarrhea, especially children.
- If your child complains of feeling unwell, please consider keeping them home until you are sure they are okay.
- Please keep sick children at home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever or signs of illness, without using fever-reducing medications. Keeping children with a fever at home will reduce the number of people who may get infected.
Please join us in making this a cooperative effort to avoid the spread of sickness. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.

During the month of December, Junior Beta Club members collected hygiene items, candy, and treats for residents of Meadow Wood. Junior Beta Club officers, Jack Hyland, Emma Still, Lacie Grubbs, and Patrick Hullett delivered the items to residents and staff. They had an opportunity to visit with many people who expressed their appreciation for the gift bags. A special thanks to all Junior Beta Club members for their ministry to the residents of Meadow Wood this year.
Gaston Christian will be participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring the week of January 29-February 2, school-wide. The Souper Bowl of Caring was created in response to the growing needs of our communities. A group of teens found that if each person who watches the Super Bowl would give a can of food, we could solve hunger, thus creating the Souper Bowl! Have your student bring in non-perishable food items or personal hygiene items, diapers, cleaning products, etc. to support the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina!
