Purpose Statement:

F. M. Golson Elementary: Building Foundations for Academic Success

Extended Day Care

Golson provides Extended Day Care (EDC) every day after school, Monday through Friday from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. At EDC, students have time to do homework and also receive a snack. The cost is $35 a week.   Call Mrs. Blanton (ext. 224) for more info.

School Safety


One of our main priorities these first few weeks of school is to make sure our children are safe and that we are doing everything we need to do security wise. Just for your information, we have already conducted bus evacuation drills, a fire drill, and a tornado drill school wide. These are only drills, as we practice fire drills at least once a month. We also have our annual safety inspection in three weeks. As a parent, if you see things that concern you or you have questions about, please let us know. We want Golson to be a safe and secure place for all!

Parents and Students,

Thank you for a great first week!


Now that the first week is under our belt, we are striving to get settled. A few reminders that will help us:

· We encourage students to begin walking to class on their own. If you walk with them, we ask that you sign in and get a visitor’s sticker.

· Please have your child at school so they can make it to class by the tardy bell at 8:05 a.m.

· Please do not check out after 2:30 p.m.

· Please do not skip in the car line or park and take your child from the car line or from the back of the school.


Thank you for your cooperation!
