Gables Weekly Summary


Thank you for Participating in the Family-School Relationships Survey in January!

Once again, we want to thank everyone who was able to complete the Winter 2022 survey. A summary of how our family responses compared to prior periods is in the table below. You can also see more detail by clicking on the chart or here. These surveys help Gables staff and the CCS District understand how well and how we can better engage with our families. We have one more survey for Spring 2022, thank you in advance for your feedback!

Patience, April Word of the Month

Patience is being able to wait for something without becoming angry or upset and, in the end, accepting the fact that something might take a little longer than we want.

Weekly Meetings/Clubs

Transportation Information

Bus routes, changes, and notices are handled by the Transportation department. They can give current bus statuses: 614-365-5074.

Transportation has been especially difficult and unpredictable for many families this year. Please provide feedback to or directly to board members, whose email addresses can be found here. Gables staff is separate from Transportation staff, but we do pass along comments. Notes are more powerful coming directly from affected families - please reach out, too!
