 New Start Time for Elementary Schools

Due to the lack of bus drivers our Transportation Department has been faced with some difficult decisions determining bus routes and stops for 21-22. We will continue to have Community Bus Stops. We will be able to release more information about the location of these stops at Open House on August 9, 2021.  With these changes, comes a change in our daily start time.  All students will need to be in class by 7:30 this year. Students arriving after that time will be counted tardy and will need to be signed in at the front office by a parent.  Our doors will open at 7:00 am and breakfast will be served from 7:00-7:30.  Dismissal time has not changed. Buses and car riders will be dismissed at 2:15pm. The district will re-evaluate the start time after the first 9 weeks.

Doors open at 7:00 a.m.

Breakfast 7:00-7:30 a.m.

Students will be tardy at 7:30 a.m.

Dismissal will begin with announcements at 2:15.

Congratulations to Walker County Schools distinguished teacher, Ms. Rebekah Cantrell! We could not be more proud of Ms. Cantrell for this very deserving honor and recognition. She truly is an extraordinary educator, and we are so blessed to have her at GES.

Gilbert is Buzzing With Excitement

Gilbert Elementary School has been given an amazing opportunity by the Whole Kids Foundations Bee Cause Project and the Savannah Bee Company to host an observation honey bee hive in our building!  The Bee Cause Project has currently provided hives for 330 schools in 50 states and 4 countries around the world. Our hive has been installed in our hydroponics lab, so that it is an easily accessible teaching resource for all classes to enjoy.  The hive design has proven to be structurally safe.  Designed and developed by the Savannah Bee Company, the hive is securely anchored to the building and bees cannot enter the lab from the hive; they only have access to the outdoors via a tube through the wall.


Given the massive population decline of major crop pollinators in recent decades, a greater scientific understanding of the role of pollinators and their health is urgently needed. The hive is a resource for the whole community to experientially, but safely, learn about pollinators’ important contributions to our local ecosystem, agriculture, and economy. The honey bee hive will highlight our school’s commitment to preparing students to understand and address global sustainability issues, as well as a teaching tool for insects, life cycles, and pollinators.
