The Principals' Perspective

It is with our sincere hope that you all had a wonderful Winter Break. As we return, we want to take this opportunity to let you know how much we value the time we spend with your child(ren). We also take this time to welcome new families to CGES.

Teachers invest many hours over breaks into planning engaging learning opportunities to bring in the New Year. Below please find helpful reminders of procedures that will enable us to ensure the safety of each child while providing the best education possible.

  • School begins promptly at 7:30 and students are expected to be in their classrooms by that time.
  • If your child arrives after the 7:30 tardy bell, walk your child into the front office and sign in, please.
  • Early checkout (ECO) is available only for medical appointments or emergency situations.
  • Visitors must check-in at the front office, present a state-issued ID (each visit), and obtain a visitor sticker; the sticker must be worn at all times while in the building for security purposes.
  • Transportation changes should be communicated to our front office via telephone (479.696.3400) or via email at
  • Transportation changes must be communicated prior to 2:00 p.m.; the last ECO will be called at 2:15 p.m.

We welcome parents to our school and appreciate your involvement. Please be sure to contact your child's teacher in advance to schedule an appointment if you have a need to meet in person.

We understand that some procedures may be inconvenient, but they are necessary to ensure the safety of students and staff. We truly appreciate your cooperation and compliance.

We look forward to a fabulous second semester at Centerton Gamble. Thank you for entrusting your children to us!!
