Safety Procedures

Parent Drop Off/Pick Up

Parents are reminded that our arrival time is 7:56 a.m. Students should be dropped off no earlier than that time. Buses unload and walkers should arrive at the same time. Drop off is allowed in the circle out in front of the Middle School Office entrance. Parking for an extended time in the circle is not allowed. Please use the parking lot so that we can keep the circle clear. Students can also be dropped off at the District Office door, however students will need to walk around the front of the building to get in.

Dismissal is at 3:15 p.m. There is NO PARKING allowed in the circle in front of the Middle School entrance from 2:30-3:30 p.m. to allow bus loading and unloading. Please park in the parking lot or behind the signs posted leaving the circle clear.

Absences and Late Arrival/Early Dismissal

Golding Middle School is striving for perfect school attendance! Should your child become ill and not be able to attend school, we ask that you call Mrs. Ward, Attendance Clerk at (518) 234-8368, option 3, before 8:30 a.m. on the day of the absence. As always, even if you call, a note needs to come to school with your child when he/she returns.

Late arrivals and early dismissals are handled in our Attendance Office. Parents need to sign students in/out. Please come in to the school and speak with Mrs. Ward, Attendance Clerk. She will walk you through the process.

Homework for Absent Students

Homework requests are handled by the Attendance Office. Please review the procedure in the Student Handbook. Collected homework is available after dismissal until 4 p.m. daily.

Visitors to School

All visitors to the William H. Golding Middle School need to check in at the Middle School Office.
