Gotha Update 8/1/2022

Hello Gotha Families! 

The days of summer are winding down and  I have some reminders and updates about bus transportation, laptop information, soccer tryouts, classroom supply lists, annual parent forms and general school information.

If you are looking for bus information, go to the OCPS transportation page here.  Bus route assignments for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year will be available to view on August 1, 2022.

OCPS has made several changes to the LaunchED 1:1 Digital Learning program to ensure transparency and clarity.  To see that information, including how fines are assessed, the LaunchED Parent Guide and the district’s Bring Your Own Device policy, click here.  

Soccer tryouts will begin on August 10th immediately following dismissal. Athletes MUST have their COMPLETED athletic packet turned into the Main Office by August 9th @ 4:00 P.M. The packet can be found here. You MUST print out the packet and have it fully completed by students, parents, and a doctor. The actual physical forms MUST be completed by a doctor and MUST have the doctor's address stamp on it.  If you have any questions please reach out to Mrs. Davis- Athletic Director @ [email protected] 

Shepherd’s Hope Health Centers and Nemours Children’s Health will hold free back-to-school and sports physicals throughout Orange County beginning now through August 9.  An appointment is required to participate in these events. Please see the flier for more information.   Shepard's Hope Schools & Sports Physicals Schedule

Our classroom supply lists can be found below!

Orange County Public Schools respects that families have the right to make educational decisions for their child. During the 2022-23 school year there are two ONLINE forms for parents/guardians in Skyward Family Access.  Please click here for information about these two forms.  

As you prepare for the actual start of school, please remember to review the OCPS Dress Code and other general behavior expectations with your student.  We will be reviewing these with the students when they get back on August 8th.  If you are shopping for back to school clothes and looking to donate old clothes, remember we have a clothing donation bin on campus!  The school is provided with funds based on the weight of the donations!

There are a variety of ways to support the school!  Please click on the links below for more information!

Please contact the school if you have any questions at all.  Have a great week and as always, IT’S A GREAT DAY TO BE A GRIZZLY!
