Gatesville Elementary School


  • IMPORTANT: Gates County Public Schools are transporting meals through our Transportation Department (Monday through Friday) for students who normally ride the bus.  It is one delivery per day with a breakfast & lunch combo. Schools are closed for the remainder of the school year.

    The buses will be leaving the schools at approximately 8:30 a.m.,  however, the times of meal drop-offs will vary from their normal pick up time. Parents, if you have pets or animals at your home, please contain them until you have received your delivery.

    Meal pickup for car riders and Pre-K students will be available at the schools from 11:00-1:00 Monday through Friday.  

    Updated Packet Pick-Up/Drop Off Day: All packets have been distributed at this time. All completed work should be turned in as soon as possible via bus or brought to school between 11:00-1:00.

    Packets: We are collecting completed work packets from students.  Students have received 5 work packets at this time.  Students may turn in what they have.  Please make sure you put the student's name and grade level on the packet/bag.  Another way to return work would be to scan papers, if you have that capability or send pictures of work via e-mail to the teacher.  The bus staff will pick up work from students.  If you plan to drop-off work, you may do so from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.  Thank you.
