IMPORTANT: Make Sure Your Emergency Sheets are Up To Date

It is getting to be that time of year, believe it or not, and the snow will be here. Yes, we do live in the North Country and we do have unpredictable weather patterns. Please be aware that if the school closes early, WE FOLLOW YOUR CHILD'S EMERGENCY DISMISSAL! We have close to 700 students in our school and for safety purposes, we follow the dismissal request you as parents and caregivers give us so that your child is delivered safely to the address you gave us. If you need to change this address, please check with our office as this has to be written. We do not take changes over the phone. Safety will always be our number #1 priority, so please help us escort our scholars home safely during inclement weather!

Are you registered for One Call Now?

The winter weather is here and the Gouverneur CSD utilizes the calling system of One Call Now for any weather-related delays or closings. The One Call Now system is a perfect way to know what is happening if the school closes early or if it is delayed or if after-school activities are canceled. If you are not registered, please visit this website by clicking here and follow the instructions. Don't miss out on being notified!

Check out some pictures of our Winter Concerts! Thank you Mrs. Hall and everyone for supporting our music programs!

Gouverneur Elementary Pledge

I pledge to make Gouverneur Elementary a safe and happy place.

I will be respectful, responsible and honest.

I will treat others the way I want to be treated, with gold and blue shining through.

Gouverneur Elementary School, Gouverneur, NY

Gouverneur Elementary School is an exemplary school where we agree to place the welfare of students at the forefront of our decisions. In becoming a school of excellence, we always identify and implement new or enhanced initiatives in the area of curriculum and instruction, provide respectful and professional learning environments, develop and implement planning and support systems and increase faculty, parent and community partnerships.


We are a Responsive Classroom school, so our belief is that the social and emotional curriculum is just as important as the academic curriculum. We pride ourselves to "Delivering The Promise of A Brighter Future!"
