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.

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 trying to use this as an all-in-one place for communications with calendars, notifications, and alerts.

Here’s a link to download

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