Van Delivery




Van

2022-23 Van Delivery Schedule

Delivering a wide variety of materials, all available at no charge for educators to use, once a week to every school.

Cancelation of delivery due to weather or road conditions is never convenient, but occasionally, it happens. If weather conditions prevent the GPAEA van from arriving as scheduled, attempts will be made to deliver materials on an alternate day. Routes are canceled when half or more of the stops on that route have called off school or if road conditions jeopardize the safety of our van driver. When this occurs, we will attempt to notify affected schools that there will be no delivery that day.
