Superintendent's Message

Snow Day Procedure

Please click here to find a letter regarding my process for deciding a snow day or a delayed opening for the Gilford Schools.  It is important to know there is no exact science and as parents / guardians you always have the right to make a decision for your child and family.  After reviewing my letter please let me know if you have any questions.

At the November Gilford School Board meeting Remote Learning on weather related days was discussed.  We will have some Remote Learning days in the Gilford Schools and those will be known in advance and preparation will be made prior to the Remote Learning day being called.  We will not have remote learning days on a Friday before a vacation or a Monday after a vacation.  We will not have back to back remote learning days.  Our first snow day will be a traditional snow day.  Please reach out if you have any questions.

As a reminder we have an Early Release day tomorrow, December 13, 2023.

Fingerprinting for Volunteers and Chaperones

The Gilford School District welcomes volunteers in our schools.

A fingerprint background check is required in all Gilford schools for individuals, volunteers and chaperones engaged in the following activities:

  • classroom volunteers

  • chaperones on field trips

  • assisting at school activities such as dances, plays and concerts

  • volunteer coach

Once a thorough background investigation and criminal records check is complete with no disqualifying records and the volunteer has completed orientation, the volunteer will be issued an identification badge to be worn every time the volunteer works in the school.  

Fingerprint clinics are scheduled at the SAU office located at 2 Belknap Mountain Road.  A photo ID is required for identification.  

The process takes approximately 30 minutes. A photo will be taken for the ID badge.


Anyone who volunteers in the Gilford School District must complete an annual Volunteer Affidavit and Confidentiality Agreement.  

Volunteers who have already been issued an ID badge and would like a new badge for the 2023-2024 school year need to complete the Volunteer Affidavit and Confidentiality Agreement and submit to the SAU office. Every four years volunteers will need to go through the background investigation and criminal records check at the SAU office.

Volunteer Affidavit

Confidentiality Agreement

The form can be printed, completed and submitted to the SAU.  Forms can be emailed to [email protected]

Gilford School District policies JFABD (Admission of Homeless Students), ACAC (Title IX Sexual Harassment) and JICK (Bullying and Cyberbullying) must be reviewed annually by all volunteers.  Click here to review the policies.
