FROM MRS. HUBBARD, PRINCIPAL
With a new transportation system in place, we have a greater number of walkers and bikers at Governor Winslow School. For the safety of all, here are a few reminders:
- Bikers, walkers, and car drop off should arrive to school at 8:40 AM. (Staff will not be on duty until that time.)
- Bikers must walk their bikes on Regis Road and remain on the sidewalk at all times.
- Car line drop off is at the bike rack at 8:40 AM. Students should remain in the car until a staff member signals.
- DO NOT drop off or pick up students on Regis Road or Gotham Hill Drive. Please use the car drop off/pick up line.
- Please be sure walkers and bikers are prepared for inclement weather.
Thank you so much for your attention to our arrival and dismissal at GWS. The safety of our students remains our top priority, and we appreciate your help!
