School Safety

Each school year we practice six Fire drills as well as Lock Down and Earthquake drills.  We are proud of students’ quick and calm responses to our drills at GV!   Safety and security are our top priorities.  All adult visitors are reminded to please enter the school through the front entrance, sign in at the office, and wear a visitor badge.
