GWS Weekly Newsletter

November 18, 2022


As winter weather approaches, we request your help in keeping our students happy and healthy. Please be sure your children are dressed appropriately for the cold, with winter jackets, hats, and mittens, as we will be outside for recess if the temperature is above twenty-five degrees. Our classroom and bus windows are often open for ventilation throughout the school year. Please contact me if you need any assistance providing winter attire, as we would be happy to help.

Alternate bus routes and walker buses may be used this winter during inclement weather. Please see our website for details.

Our lost and found is located adjacent to our front lobby, and items are quickly accumulating. Please let us know if you recognize anything from the picture below.

Have a great weekend!

In an effort to increase safety and security of our students and staff, our district is implementing a new tool to help us monitor visitors and volunteers that come to our building. This new system will require all visitors to bring their ID to the office in order to be checked in. While we know a large amount of our parents and family members, we will be asking for IDs from ALL visitors. We thank you for your help with this new added measure that will maintain a safe environment at GWS.
