Welcome to Joseph E. Gary Elementary School
Street Parking/ Estacionamiento
We are asking for everyone’s cooperation in regards to the safety of our students. Please keep in mind that it is illegal to park around the sides of the school, it is illegal to double park and it is illegal to park in the designated area for the bus pick up/drop off (30th between the Annex and New Building). Please keep in mind that children are crossing the streets and running between parked cars, which poses a huge safety risk for all. In addition, due to the congestion of double parked cars, it creates a very difficult situation for our staff trying to get into the parking lot. Please note that parents cannot drive into the parking lot to wait for students. Police will be called and tickets will be issued if parked illegally.
Estamos pidiendo la colaboración de todos en respecto a la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes. Por favor, tenga en cuenta que es illegal estacionarse en los lados alrededor de la escuela, es illegal estacionarse en doble fila y es illegal estacionarse en el area designada para la recogida del autobus (30 entre el Anexo y el edificio Nuevo). Tenga en cuenta que los niños cruzan las calles y corren entre los autos estacionados, lo que representa un gran riesgo de seguridad para todos. Además, debido a la congestión de autos estacionados en doble fila, crea una situación muy dificl para nuestro personal que intenta ingresar al estacionamiento. Tenga en cuenta que los padres no pueden conducir en el estacionamiento para esperar a los estudiantes. La policia sera llamada y darán multas si conductores no siguen las reglas.

We would like to congratulate the Boy's 7/8th grade soccer team for earning 2nd place in the CPS City Tournament.

Gary defeated Albany Park in their first match with a score of 8-1. In their second game, Gary took the victory by 1 goal in a 4-3 final score against Tarkington.

All after school activities will dismiss at 3:45 pm. The building will be closed at this time as well.
