Hybrid in-person learning begins!

We are excited to welcome back our Hybrid remote students to the school building this coming week. Please see the Arrival and Dismissal information below for specific details on procedures.


Please remember that this Tuesday, 10/20, is a half day for all students. Parent conferences will take place from 12:30-5:00 pm virtually. If you have not yet signed up for a parent conference, and would like to do so, please contact your child's teacher.


Beginning 10/19, the Food Services department will be offering an afternoon pick up each Monday from 3:30-5:00 pm. The meals consist of approximately days worth of frozen, cold and shelf stable breakfasts and lunches. Meals are provided to all students-- regardless of whether they are in the Remote or Hybrid learning model-- and are available to all up to and including age 18.


Thank you for your attention to these updates and please accept our gratitude for all of the ways you continue to support your child's education during this time. This has been the challenge of a lifetime in many ways and we are so appreciative of the support you have given to our staff and community.


Sincerely, Kate Watts and Joe Trivisonno

Morning Arrival

Families may begin dropping off their children at 8:42 a.m.

Directions for drop off:

Upon arrival at GV, please follow the signs and painted lines to form a double line, pulling forward to the staff member holding a "STOP" sign. Parents may let their children out of the car ONLY when they are in the drop off zone, and a staff member has signaled to do so. Parents will then exit to the left when signaled by the staff member, following the marked lane.

These procedures are in place to ensure a safe and efficient arrival. For their safety, do not let your child out of the car anywhere else in the parking lot.


Afternoon Dismissal

Parents may begin lining up for dismissal at 2:45 p.m. We ask that you refrain from arriving prior to 2:45 p.m. to keep emergency lanes open as long as possible.

Directions for pick up:

Upon arrival, please follow the signs and painted lines to form a double line stopping at the marked lines. Staff will instruct you when to proceed to pick up your child after the buses have left the dismissal area. Cars will merge into a single line, and pull up towards the loading dock. After your student enters your car, please pull away from the curb with caution. Dismissal of students for pick up will begin approximately 3:10 p.m.

After 2:45 p.m. this is the only manner students will be dismissed. No dismissals from the office will be permitted between 2:45 p.m. and 3:20 p.m.
