School Info- At a Glance
Pick Up/Drop Off
Leland and Gray is divided into four levels- the main entryway to the school is on A Level, the entryway to the gym is C Level. Until 7:45AM, all students must enter on C Level. If students arrive at school after 7:50AM, they must enter on A Level and students can walk down the hall to C Level. Parents can drop-off their students before school on C Level.
Parents can pick up their students on C level immediately after school, or on A level once the buses have left campus.
The first bell rings at 7:45AM Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri. The second bell rings and the school day begins at 7:50AM. Students are expected to be in their first class by 7:50AM. If students arrive at the school after 7:50AM, they must enter on A Level and sign in at the Main Office.
Wednesdays are late start days, except August 30th for 6-9 orientation and during Winter Activities January 10 - February 14. On late start days, the first bell rings at 9:15AM and the second bell rings at 9:20AM.
The dismissal bell rings and the school day ends at 2:40PM
If a student must be absent, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify the school by 8:30 AM on the day of the absence at 802-365-7355.
If the student is sick, parents/guardians may request to speak with the school nurse to explain the symptoms and to determine whether or not the student should stay home and/or visit a doctor.
Documentation of an appointment, such as a doctor's note, is necessary in order for an absence to be excused. The school nurse may also excuse a student as described above. Please understand that simply calling the school to tell them that your child will not be attending that day does not constitute an excused absence.
More procedures and absence information can be found in the Student Handbook.
Friday Notes is a weekly electronic mailing that is sent out on Fridays with important information via our automated communication altert system. We use famiyl email addresses that are in Alma so please make sure we have up-to-date email addresses.
High School sports begin on August 17. Middle school sports begin on August 30. Parents must have completed paperwork for the season which can be found on FormReLeaf. Paperwork needs to be completed for each sport your student-athlete participates.
Community Service is a high school graduation requirement. Middle school students may earn 10 hours of community service prior to beginning high school. Students seeking information about community service requirements and opportunities should contact Sarah Grasso (802-221-2127) or Terry Davison Berger (802-221-2117)
MIddle School students take three (September, December, June), nationally-normed, benchmark exams throughout the course of the year. The benchmark testing we use is through AIMSweb and provides teachers with valid and reliable reading and math data. The AIMSweb testing results are analyzed and students are group by skill need during their WIN (What I Need) block. Testing resutls do not factor into a student's grades for their course.
Email and Chromebook
Your students will be assigned a Leland & Gray email address through our Google Platform which they will be expected to check daily. They will also be assigned a Chromebook.
