Campus Flyer Distribution (Reference: GKDA (Legal) and GKDA (Local)) 

Due to the recent announcements and numerous changes impacting students and staff, no distributions of non-school related flyers or products will be allowed or accepted for general disbursement on district campuses for the remainder of the 2018-19 school year.  The aforementioned policies and current practices will be reviewed over the summer to develop a more efficient means of disseminating non-school related information to students, staff and families.
