We want parents to please turn down the heat as it is causing some of the children to have elevated temperatures. This will cause a delay because we will have to wait and take the temperature again...maybe several times.
Parents are not permitted in the building at this time. Staff will assist them, if they pull up in the right lane during drop-off...during the day, they can ring the bell.
Teachers are not available for conferences in the morning as they are supervising students. Parents may call during their planning times or call after school. Another option would be to send a message.
If a child displays any symptom of Covid, please keep your child home and let us know. We are asking staff to monitor Covid symptoms as well.
Pre-K dismissal is 2:30 PM.
Dismissal for grades K-5 is 3:00 PM.
We cannot accommodate habitual early pick-ups. We will work with you if it is an emergency.
We will let you know when GES will accept volunteers.
Fever Protocol- Students exhibiting fevers may not come to school for 10 days, unless diagnosed with an illness other than Covid-19 in which the doctor indicates the student may return to school.
Our Mission: In partnership with parents, Gatesville Elementary School is committed to educating, nurturing, and empowering students to become successful members of the 21st century.
Our school day will begin at 8:00 AM and end at 3:00 PM (Pre-K at 2:30 PM). Please see drop-off times on the left. Please do not pick-up students early unless the students have doctor's appointments or if there is an emergency.
