INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

GCS uses electronic means of communication, we wanted to inform you of the GCS policy regarding inclement weather closings/delays.

Parents will receive notification by GCS App notification, email, posted on the GCS website, and social media (Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram). This information will be available as soon as a decision is made regarding the closures/delays. Local TV stations will be informed after all direct communication has been sent. Full Protocol Letter

To keep you informed of a school closing/delay, please download the GCS App for important notifications.

Gaston Christian School APP

GCS has a dedicated Gaston Christian School app for Apple and Google smartphones. We are using this as an all-in-one place for communications with calendars, notifications, and alerts.

Here’s a link to download http://l.ead.me/bbjWIU?trackSharing=1

Below is a video walkthrough of the app and how it works:

  • If you own a business and would like to sponsor our app
  • Sponsor level (Gold, Silver, Bronze)
  • A transparent logo to be used for the sponsor icon (needs to be an original PSD and/or AI file or an image with dimensions of at least 1000×1000)
  • An image to be used for the sponsor listing (needs to be an original PSD and/or AI file or an image with dimensions of at least 1600×900)
  • Copy and links to be used for their sponsor listing (include organization name, approx. 100-word bio, any links to include in their listing)
