The mission of Gaston Elementary School is to meet the social, emotional, physical, and academic needs of all students in a loving atmosphere.
Our vision is to provide an environment where students, parents, and faculty feel welcome, safe, and successful.
All visitors are to sign in and out in the front office. Please note, if your child has to check out for any reason including doctor appointments, you must be here before 2:00 pm. To ensure the safety of our students, only school staff is allowed in the office after this time.
Students shall not possess any digital device within the testing room when participating in ACAP testing. The possession of a digital device by students participating in ACAP testing is strictly prohibited during the administration of a test. The ONLY exception to this policy is for students who have been pre-approved by the Building Test Coordinator or the Principal to have a digital device that is necessary for the health and/or well being of the student.
If students are in possession of a digital device that is within their reach during the administration of an ACAP test, the device will be confiscated and, if the appropriate administrator determines that there is reasonable suspicion that the device was used to capture, record, or share test information or to facilitate cheating on the test, it may be subject to search pursuant to LEA policy for any information directly related to the ACAP test being administered. Additionally, the student will be dismissed from testing immediately and the test may be invalidated in accordance with ACAP policy.Violation(s) may result in disciplinary action by the LEA in accordance with the LEA's disciplinary policy.
