A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who donated to the Football Frenzy Food Drive last week! Godwin Heights collected 1,330 POUNDS OF FOOD for families in need!

The Kindergarten students chose to have a pizza party and the 2nd graders chose to have an ice cream party!

If your child will be absent or tardy, please call the office at 252-2030 to have the absence excused.

If your child will not be riding the bus home, please call the office by 2:30 pm so we are able to accommodate the change.


Drop-Off -Students can be dropped off in the rear lot off of 36th street between 8:15 am and 8:30 am. Staff will call you forward to the flag and open the door for your student.

For safety, we ask that you and your student remain in your vehicle until staff directs you to the drop-off area. Please have your child’s coat on and additional items ready prior to pulling into the drop-off zone.

Pick-Up- Students can be picked up in the rear lot off 36th street between 3:15 pm & 3:30 pm. Please remember to have your student information sign in your window.

Please pay close attention to security officers and staff directing traffic daily. For safety please follow directions of staff during pick-up and drop-off and practice slow speeds through the student drop-off pick-up zone.

Please observe the Right Turn Only Sign as you exit the parking lot. Attempts to turn left have resulted in some extremely close calls when entering traffic on 36th street.

At Godwin Heights we believe that all students possess the ability to learn, to experience personal success, and to be productive citizens. Godwin Heights Public Schools deliver quality education enabling each student to work cooperatively and to participate in our diverse, democratic society
