Child Nutrition Week May 3-7
Child Nutrition Appreciation Week is May 3-7. Have you thanked a school lunch hero today? Let them know how much they mean to the students and the school day!
To kick off Child Nutrition Appreciation Week, GCISD schools will celebrate School Lunch Hero Day on May 7. School Lunch Hero Day provides an opportunity for parents, students, school staff, and communities to thank those who provide healthy meals to 30 million of America’s students each school day.
Parent Tech Academy - Parent Internet Reporting
To support strong communication with our families beyond the school day, we are pleased to introduce a new resource available to our parents. Parent Internet Reporting is an on-demand tool for parents that allows guardians to view their children's online activity and increases the measures already taken to protect our students while using a District device. Through this platform, parents will receive weekly email reports summarizing internet activity on District devices, as well as the ability to access real-time reporting of what their students are doing online. In an effort to help our parents control screen time while students are home, the system will also allow for a guardian to pause the internet on a GCISD device.
In order to receive access to the Parent Internet Reporting tool, we are asking parents to attend a virtual information session on April 20 at 6:30 p.m. There is also an online course that will explain the Parent Internet Reporting that will be launched on April 21. If you cannot attend the virtual training on April 20, you must complete the course to receive access to the parent internet reporting tool. The course can be found at www.gcisd.net/ParentInternet.
