General Overview

We held our first music concerts in the Gallatin High auditorium this week. Our band performed on Tuesday evening and our Chamber orchestra performed Thursday night. Both concerts could be viewed via Zoom and more concerts are coming up next week.


It was also an exciting week for our Raptor volleyball team as they were the first team to win a crosstown match with Bozeman High, not once, but twice in one week. The Raptors came from behind on Tuesday and Thursday nights to win in five games. They were exciting matches to watch and we wish them well as they head into the playoffs next week.

Covid Update and Reminders

As the number of cases continues to rise around Gallatin County and the state, it is critically important that students stay home if they are showing any symptoms or not feeling well. Please review this home health screening form and do not send your student to school if they are not feeling well.

Transfer Information

Any student wishing to transfer between high schools at semester or for the upcoming school year must complete a transfer request per Policy 3128 and Procedure 3128P. Transfer requests are due by Friday, November 6th. Transfer information and the transfer request form can be found on the BSD7 website. Please know that transfer requests are considered on a limited and qualified basis.

Coming Up in November

Thanksgiving Week

For all BSD7 schools, track A (A-L) students will attend school in person on Monday, November 23, and Tuesday, November 24. Track B (M-Z) students will not attend school in person during this week. This schedule balances the number of attendance days for each track since track A did not attend on September 8 and September 28. There is no school Wednesday-Friday, November 25-27.


National Honor Society

The Gallatin High chapter of National Honor Society is excited to welcome our first class of juniors this fall. Students with a GPA of 3.7 or higher are eligible to apply for National Honor Society. Qualifying students will receive application information in the next few weeks and applications will be due at the end of November. The induction ceremony will be held sometime in January.


Registration

Believe it or not, it is almost time to register for next school year. Students will receive pre-registration information in November and register for classes in December. Be on the lookout for more information as we get closer to November.

Tobacco and Vaping Use and Covid

Health professionals are strongly urging that adults and adolescents stay vape and tobacco-free during the COVID-19 pandemic. A new study out in the Journal of Adolescent Health (October, 2020) shows that adolescents and young adults that use electronic cigarettes are at elevated risk of COVID-19 progression compared with non-smokers. Electronic cigarette use weakens the immune system and compromises the lungs which can lead to worse infection, more significant symptoms, and exacerbated health outcomes.
