Information

March 30, 2020:  Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order for Marylanders which means no one should leave their home for any reason other than essential work, to get food or other fundamental reason. The order takes effect at 8 pm.
For the GISW this means:

1. All GISW buildings will be closed for the foreseeable future. 

2. In order to give our teachers and parents more time to prepare, we are postponing both parent nights that were scheduled for tonight to Thursday at the same time.

Distance Learning until Friday, April 24th, 2020.

We are here for you as we continue to prepare for the 2020/21 school year. The Admissions Office remains open. Please complete this form and we will contact you: https://giswashington.org/request-information-package.html

Extended Care at the Preschool

Extended Care for Preschool children takes place in the Preschool building.

Children, who are enrolled in the afternoon program and need to stay longer, can go to Extended Care on Monday through Friday from 3:00 pm to 4:45 pm.

This fee-based program offers the following:  traditional games, crafts, dancing, puppet theater, preschool playground (weather permitting), and - if needed - also rest periods, etc.  We might take a small tour of the grounds of the GISW, and visit, e.g. the Preschool library, or the soccer field.

Extended Care PLUS:

As in past school years, we are offering the Extended PLUS program, which is designed for early release days.

This offer is for all children who are signed up for the regular Extended Care program.

On early release days, the children will meet when the school day ends at 1:30 pm, and will be cared for until 4:45 pm.

Timely Pick-Up

The program ends at 4:45 pm (pick-up time 4:45 pm to 5:00 pm).  The back entrance will be open from 4:45 pm to 5:00 pm.

If you have any questions about the Preschool Extended Care program, please contact Mrs. Klara Toth at ktoth@giswashington.org.
