Please remember there is NO PARKING in the Hug & Go Zone, along the curb in front of the school, at any time.  Please pull forward as far as possible in the Hug & Go Zone before dropping your child off.  If you want to walk your child to the entrance please park in the parking lot or on surrounding streets.  During afternoon pickup, if you must leave your vehicle and enter the school, please park in the main lot. Vehicles in the Hug & Go Zone MUST be attended at all times.


Teachers will gather students in the front and back of the building, depending on the classroom location within the building.  Your child’s teacher will notify you where the class should lineup. Teachers will have a grade level sign for students to gather at prior to entering the building. For the safety of all our students it is imperative that you honor this request.   Thank you!


If your child rides the bus to school you can check schedules and pick up bus passes at the Back to School night or during school office hours prior to the first day of school.  Questions regarding bus routes should be directed to Transportation at 303-702-7534.


We all look forward to seeing you soon!  Please feel free to check our website at http://gves.svvssd.org  for updated information, or contact the school if you have any questions!


Warmly,

Kirsten McNeill
