Like many schools, GCDS strived to improve the parent experience during drop off and pick up, a process that in the past naturally created traffic congestion, long wait times, and a chaotic environment. Dismissal wait times for the lower and middle school divisions could last north of forty minutes. Numerous other schools on streets neighboring their main N-8 campus dismiss at the same time, which used to create regular gridlock for families entering and exiting campus.
