Welcome to Gladewater Primary School
Where the Journey Begins..
.
Learning starts here. Gladewater Primary is home to the Wee Bears, serving the Head Start, Prekindergarten, Kindergarten, and First Grade students in GISD. Gladewater Primary is a happy place with wonderful teachers and a caring staff. Family involvement is important to us and we work hard each day to make sure that we take care of all our Wee Bears.

Gladewater provides a safe and nurturing learning environment where students are empowered with the skills and character to be productive and successful citizens.

Masks and Face Covering

Students at Gladewater Primary School do NOT have to wear a mask as the governor’s order does not include children below the age of 10. All GPS students must wear a mask or face covering when riding a bus.

Traffic

Please be patient and observe all campus procedures for dropping off and picking up students. Safety is our first priority. Traffic patterns usually settle into a normal, efficient routine by the 2nd week of school. Follow Gladewater GPS on Facebook for a map of pick-up and drop-off traffic flow.

Safety

  • The GISD COVID-19 Health Protocol will be followed daily. The COVID-19 Protocol is located on the GISD website under “News and Announcements”.
  • Class sizes will depend on the number of students actually learning on-campus. 
  • Social distancing will be practiced to the greatest extent possible in all areas of the school building without disrupting the educational experience. This includes the spacing of desks/seats when possible.
  • For truancy reporting purposes, COVID-related absences will be excused by the school with a note or call from the parent. The GISD doctor’s note requirement is waived until the COVID-19 crisis has passed.
  • School attendance is still mandatory. Students must attend school on 90% of school days in order to receive credit for the course or grade level. This state law remains in effect. Students who miss numerous days for illness or quarantine purposes will be transitioned to remote instruction.  
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in every classroom and bus, and throughout each school building. Students and staff will sanitize their hands upon entering the classroom or bus. Students will be encouraged to wash their hands frequently during the school day.
  • Staff will limit the use of shared supplies when possible and have access to disinfectant wipes to sanitize high-touch and working surfaces, as well as shared objects.
  • Classrooms, buses, and high-touch areas will be cleaned and sanitized daily.
  • Strict limitations on visitors to GISD schools will be observed.
