Our 4-Star Status
GES, in Partnership with Safe Routes to School, encourages children to use alternative ways to get to school on Thursday's (or any day). Students who walk, ride, skate, skip, hop or jump to school will receive two "Blue Tickets" (to be used at the Student Store). Please remember, if you ride your bike or a scooter, it is important to wear a helmet! **Opportunities to participate in Trekking Thursday will be made available to all students even if they they ride the bus or attend Kid's Club in the morning.
Safe Routes to School
Safe Routes to School programs aim to make it safer for students to walk and bike to school and encourage more walking and biking where safety is not a barrier. Transportation, public health and planning professionals, school communities, law enforcement officers, community groups and families all have roles to play using education, encouragement, engineering (changes to the physical environment) and enforcement to meet a local community’s needs. Traditionally underserved communities deserve particular attention, in part because they tend to have more pedestrian and bicyclist injuries. Data collection is critical to the planning, implementation and evaluation of programs.
Infinite Campus is a district-wide student information system (SIS) designed to manage attendance, grades, schedules, assessments and other information about the students in the Douglas County School District. Please contact the office for help in getting your family set up in Infinite Campus!
