    We want to remind our carpool families to enter from the back of the GMS campus through the Western Boulevard entrance and exit through the same entrance. We would also like to remind families not to park near the dining hall, gym, Currin or the parking lot next to the Lineberry to pick up students. It is important to follow these procedures in the morning during drop-off and in the afternoon for pick-up. These procedures should be followed even if staff members are not present to direct traffic. Thanks for your cooperation.
