IMPORTANT NOTICE regarding GFMS Student Schedules
Due to technical difficulties, GFMS student schedules will not be available until Tuesday, August 26th at 3 pm.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause your family.

Our self-guided tour (8/25 and 8/26) will still be productive as your child will learn the layout of the building and see the section of the building where most of their day will be spent.

John Piscitella
