In order to keep all students safe and not overload our buses, students will not be allowed to switch buses to go to after school activities. Students need to ride the bus home and then you will need to transport them or you are welcome to pick them up from school. Our buses that service these areas of town are already running at capacity and cannot handle the additional students. Also, if your student wants to play with friends after school, have him/her come home first, and then go to the friend’s house. Please make all after school pick-up arrangements before students come to school. We usually only have one secretary in the office and it is impossible for her to make all the changes that are called in.
We have many children with allergies. Please do not send food on the bus with your children. If they have snacks in their backpack, they need to wait until they are off the bus to eat them.
GVES has two openings for Community Council. It is a two-year position. If you would like to run or nominate someone to run, please notify the office by Sept. 15, 2017
