Note from Mr. Davis 1/17/18:

Well, this weather continues to impact our schedules and as you might imagine isn’t allowing us to get back into our daily routine.  Thank you to all families who were diligent in monitoring the weather conditions, checking their emails and texts to see it the weather is impacting schools.  I’ve learned that the first place the information is posted is on the HCPSS website.  If you are wondering try visiting the site at or call 410.313.6666 for weather related cancellations.   We realize that these delays and cancellations impact your family and we appreciate your understanding.

  We hope you will join us for our mid-year Coffee With Administration hosted in the cafeteria on Friday, January 19th at 9:30.  This is a great time to hear updates and ask questions about what’s happening at Guilford.  We typically meet for 60 minutes.  Hope to see you on Friday.

 Lately, we are noticing that parents are dropping off their children earlier and earlier at school.  Students should not arrive at school prior to 9:05 am each day, this is when Guilford staff are outside to supervise the students.  With the cold temperatures, we do not have space or supervision for students arriving prior to 9:05 am.  Our school safety patrol members do arrive starting at 9:00 am and they do come into the building to prepare for their posts each morning, however all other students will remain outside until the bell rings at 9:10 am.  Thank you for not dropping your children off prior to this time.

Reminder to our PreK families:   There is no PreK on Wednesday, Jan 24th, Thursday, Jan. 25th, or Friday, Jan. 26th due to HS mid-terms.

For families of students in grades K to 5:  Don’t forget that Friday, January 26th is the end of the marking period and schools close at 12:50 pm that day so teachers can work on report card grades. 

Thank you!
