GWA is a drop-off and pick-up school only (no walking or biking).
To make sure the daily drop-off and pick-up of students runs smoothly, safely, and efficiently, it is imperative that everyone follows all of the rules.
Drop-off is between 7:50 AM and 8:15 AM. School begins at 8:15 AM. Students who arrive earlier than 7:50 AM will not be allowed in the building unless they have a scheduled before-school meeting with a teacher or are eating school breakfast which starts at 7:45 AM.
We highly recommend finding a carpool group to alleviate congestion. If you need help finding someone in your area to carpool with, please contact the front office for more information.
On arrival, please pull all the way forward as close to the curb as possible. Please do not stop at the doors. For safety reasons, all students must exit the side of the vehicle nearest the sidewalk. Once students are dropped off, they are to go directly to their classroom to get ready for their school day to begin. If you arrive after 8:15 AM, please park your vehicle in the lot and escort your student(s) into the building, then check-in at the office.
Afternoon pick-up will occur from 2:50 PM – 3:15 PM Monday through Thursday, and 1:00 PM – 1:25 PM on Friday. Students who are not picked up by 3:15 PM on Monday through Thursday or by 1:25 PM on Fridays will sit outside on the benches in the front of the building until their ride arrives. We ask for your courtesy in picking up your students promptly after school.
Any carpool that has a Kindergarten student in their car will be required to use the back lot for afternoon pick-up. We ask siblings of Kindergartners or those riding with a Kindergarten student to wait with the student in the back pick-up areas. Again, this only applies to the afternoon pick-up times.
Do not park your car in the front drop-off lane before 2:45 M-TH or 12:55 on Friday. This is a constant concern, and we must leave this lane open for emergency vehicles. The front lanes will be blocked off until these times. If you wish to come earlier, feel free to use the back or front parking lots.
3000 East is not a place you can park, drop off, or pick up. Please review the Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures and Map below for the most current information.
