Student Schedules

As you may have heard, classes at Gallatin High are very full! We are working to balance our classes so it is important to note that schedules may change before the first day of school. All students should check their schedules in PowerSchool on Sunday evening to ensure they have their updated schedule. Students can now view their study hall room assignments as well. All students will have time to walk their schedule on the first day of school before classes begin on Monday.

Instructions for accessing schedules:

Schedules can be accessed through PowerSchool portal. Click on Grades and Attendance on the left hand side.

First Day of School

As a reminder, we will not have a normal bell schedule on Monday. Ninth-grade students will attend school from 8:25 a.m.-3:35 p.m. All other students will attend from 12:55-3:35 p.m.

There will not be zero period classes on Monday, August 30th.

We will provide a schedule with detailed information for freshmen when they arrive at 8:25 a.m. on the 30th. We can’t wait to welcome our newest Raptors to GHS. We will look forward to seeing our tenth- through twelfth-grade students arrive in the afternoon. See below for where students should report on Monday.

First Student will run two morning bus routes on August 30, the first at normal school time for ninth-grade students and the second later in the morning for tenth- through twelfth-grade students. You will receive an email with more details about route times prior to August 30.

Along with the rest of the district, Gallatin High School will have a one-to-one technology program in place. Students will be checking out their Chromebook on Monday afternoon provided that their parent/guardian has submitted this Permission Form. An insurance plan is available for interested families (there is a link on the permission form).

Tuesday, August 31st, students will attend their normal schedule.

If you requested a locker through our Google form, you have been assigned a locker. Your locker information is in Powerschool. You must be on a computer or accessing through a browser, not through the PowerSchool app.

  • On the left, go to Forms

  • Scroll down to Locker Information.

  • Take a screenshot of the information to keep on your phone.

If you need more help or want a locker and didn't request one, stop by the main office.

Parking and Student Drop Off

With over 400 more students this school year, it is important that parents follow traffic guidelines to alleviate congestion and make it safer for our students to park and walk to class. Please only use the eastern parking lot and Annie Street for student drop off. Only students intending to park for the school day should be driving through the west lot. New this year, the northern entrance off Cottonwood is one way exit only.
