  • Help support GAB by participating in our annual fruit sale! We have partnered with Florida Indian River Groves to provide you with the freshest fruit available. Your fruit will be harvested the very same day it's shipped to us, ensuring that you receive fruit that is hours off of the tree. Now that's fresh! Now's the time to pick up a box of Navel Oranges that are sure to be bursting with flavor or a box of sugar-sweet, Indian River Red Grapefruit. And don't forget your friends, family, and coworkers.

  • Safety Update

    Dear families:

    As a result of seeking to be as secure as possible, effectively immediately, the access gates will remain locked throughout the day.  Gates 2, 3, and 5 will be opened from 7 am to 8:30 in the mornings and opened again from 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoons.  Also, we have a few gate operators assigned to remotely open the gates.  You simply call them by pressing the Gate operator button shown in the picture.Once you are parked, remember to bring your license in order to receive a visitor’s badge.  To enter the Hendricks school building, you will ring the doorbell which is located on the right and left access door to the building.  You press that button and you will gain access to this building where you will sign in and receive a visitor’s badge.

    We appreciate your help and patience in this matter.
