  • Update from Pricipal:

    February 22, 2021 

    Hello Guyton Parents. 

     I would like to thank parents and students for your cooperation as we continue working together through the COVID-19 pandemic.  It may seem that many of the safeguards currently in place are tedious and inconvenient, but our numbers certainly reflect the success of our efforts to minimize the spread of the virus within our school community.  

    While our district’s current protocols in response to individuals who test positive for COVID 19 have proven to be effective, we are asking families to please take proactive measures to offset the spread of the virus.  If your child experiences any COVID-like symptoms, please keep them at home until those symptoms improve.  We realize the symptoms for seasonal allergies are similar to those for COVID, but we have had several cases where COVID-positive students have been sent to school under the mistaken assumption that their symptoms were only allergy-related.  Thus causing many other students to be quarantined from school. 

    Again, please, keep your child at home if he or she experiences fever, cough, runny nose, sinus congestion, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, or loss of either taste or smell.  The school district understands that you are working to ensure other’s wellbeing, so please be assured that your child’s absences will not be held against them. A parent note will suffice as documentation for students’ absences in these cases. 

    Thank you for doing your part to keep all of our students and families safe!  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out and our staff will assist you in any way possible.  

    Thank you,

    Charlotte V. Connelly, Principal GES

  • Parker's Fueling the Community

    Fueling the Community

    Parker’s president, Greg Parker understands that education is the rising tide that lifts all ships. It’s the key to future success and the smartest investment in a community. 

    That’s why we proudly donate one cent from every gallon of gas purchased at all of our convenience stores on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools through our Fueling the Community program. This charitable initiative officially launched in the fall of 2011 and distributes over $100,000 per year to public and private schools throughout Georgia and South Carolina. As a locally owned and operated company, we recognize the importance of giving back to the communities where our customers and employees live and work.  This would greatly help your school, Guyton Elementary!! 

    Parker’s customers can sign up for a PumpPal card online to select Guyton Elementary for their one cent per gallon donation. Existing PumpPal members can access their account online and select your preferred school here.

    Education and health are imperative to a community, and we’re proud to regularly contribute to both. Remember to fuel up at Parker’s on the first Wednesday of each month to help us keep giving back to area schools and medical centers!
