We continue to monitor the weather closely. Right now, the temperature is hovering at 33. At this time, the plan is to finish out the school day on a regular schedule with dismissal at 3:05. It looks like the rain will turn to a wintery mix at some point this afternoon, but exactly when that will happen is anyone's guess. Parents are welcome to pick up their child(ren) early. If you opt for an early pickup, simply let the office know you are on your way and an approximate time you will be here, and we will have your child(ren) ready for you. When you get here, you can call the office. We will sign your child(ren) out and send them to you. The buses are expected to be on a regular schedule but may be delayed due to flooded roads and/or winter precipitation.

On this sixth day of December, we spotlight Gerard Albers. Mr. Albers joined our Bulldog family as a teacher in 1994. In 2003, he added the responsibility of bus driver. While Mr. Albers has since retired from teaching, he has continued to serve in the role of bus driver. This is his 19th year as a member of our transportation team. We are so lucky to have the familiar face of Mr. Albers behind the wheel nearly every day. His dedication to safely transporting our students to and from school is very much appreciated. We also love his goofy sense of humor. Besides being an important part of our Bulldog team, Mr. Albers is a girl dad, grandpa, jokester, exerciser, and basketball coach icon. Thank you, Mr. Albers, for being a difference maker at GES.
