Dear students, parents and friends of the German School of Connecticut in Stamford and West Hartford.

We offer German language instruction in a friendly, stimulating learning environment for children age 2 through high school and adults. In addition to language education, German culture and traditions (both old and new) form an important part of the curriculum, offering students a modern view of German speaking countries. Classes target students new to the German language as well as students already used to speaking and/or listening to German. Private tutors also available.

GSC Stamford: Two Saturday policy/operations changes

Dear Students, Parents and Teachers,
(originally posted 2/7/2013)

After conversations with parents, teachers and the Rippowam staff, we will introduce the following two changes to our Saturday morning operations:




School Access: Going forward, the only access to the GSC will be through the entrance at the cafeteria. The entrance at the auditorium will remain closed going forward, unless other non-GSC events require it to be open. This change will provide us with better visibility and control over who is entering the school.

We recommend using the lower parking lot at the baseball field/tennis courts. This parking lot is accessible via the southern access road and has ample space. (see attached map)
                                                         
 
Early Pickup: Effective immediately, we will require parents/caregivers to fill out a brief form when picking up students early from school. The form will be available at the front desk and will need to be countersigned by a GSC officer.
As you arrive to pick up your child:

  1. Come to the registration desk, fill out the Early Pickup form and have it countersigned by a GSC officer at the desk
  2. Take the form to the classroom and hand it to the teacher when picking up your child.
In addition, parents are responsible for letting teachers know in advance when planning to pick up students early.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns around either of these changes.
 
Thank you for your continued support of the GSC and its community.
 
Mit freundlichem Gruß,
Joachim Petzold, Vice President, GSC
