Welcome Back Information from Principal Stehlik



Hello GWMS Families and welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  We are so excited to have all students back in the building again.  The halls have been buzzing with students the last few weeks during Welcome to Westlake, Summer Band/Orchestra, and our supply drop off.  With students coming back to school on Wednesday, August 24th, we wanted to send out a few reminders to make our first few days at GWMS successful for all.


All students that are arriving by car/walking will use the south drive of GWMS.  Please follow the signs posted around the drive, and drop your students at the back of the school in the designated “drop-off” zone. Please make sure you pull up as far as you can to the car in front of you so that we can unload as many students as possible at once. Doors will be open for students to enter beginning at 7:30AM.  All bus riders will be dropped off in front of the building and will enter in Door 2. 

All students are dismissed from GWMS at 2:45PM.  All bus riders will be picked up using the main drives in front of the school.  All students being picked up by car will utilize the drive on the south side of GWMS.  Please make sure to follow the signs and only pick up students in the identified zones.  The “pick-up” zones were created so that all students can safely get to their respective vehicles.


All students will have a 30 minute lunch period daily at GWMS.  Students may bring their lunch from home, or there will be “hot” lunches available for any students at GWMS.  You have received previous notification that the government program that provided free lunch for all students has now ended.  To receive a lunch from school, you must either qualify for the free/reduced lunch program or purchase the lunch.  Remember that money can be added to lunch accounts through myschoolbucks.

School Pictures

School picture day will be Wednesday, August 24.  All students will have their picture taken, and they will be provided a School ID.  Pictures are available to purchase through Lifetouch with a packet or at



All students will be assigned a locker in the hallway as well as one for PE.  Students will need two school issued locks to secure their belongings in their lockers.  Students will be issued their PE uniform (if one was ordered) as well as their PE locker over the coming weeks.

Bus Schedules

All bus routes numbers have been posted for your student in Skyward Family Access. Please log in to view your student’s route.  We look forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday!
