Red Coat Band receives Class A Sweepstakes!

On Wednesday, the GHS Red Coat Band received a Class A Sweepstakes Award at the UIL Region 2 Concert and Sightreading Evaluation at Krum. It is a true mark of excellence for bands in Texas. To earn this award, a band must earn a First Division Rating ( A 1) in Marching Band, a First Division on their stage performance in Concert Band, and a First Division in their Sightreading performance. On Wednesday, our band students completed the necessary First Division ratings to receive this award. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement!

FOOD Deliveries

Students may have food brought to them from parents, guardians and family members. They may NOT order it and have it delivered.

Cell Phones

We appreciate your support as students get accustomed to the new cell phone policy. It takes an adjustment period but we will continue to keep the instructional focus in our classrooms and hallways.


Just as a reminder:

Cell phone use is prohibited in classrooms, hallways and restrooms. They must be stored or put away during the instructional day.


Cell phones are allowed to be used before 8:15 in the cafeteria AND during a student's assigned lunch period in the cafeteria.



● On the first offense and second offense, the telecommunications device shall be confiscated and then returned to the parent with a warning for the student/parent. The parent and student will sign the written warning.

● On the third offense (and incremental offenses thereafter), a $15 fine shall be required before the telecommunications device is returned. ○ A parent may elect to forgo the fine in place of an alternative deterrent.

■ If the fine is not paid, the student will be required to report to the front office to turn in their electronic device(s) each day for a period of five consecutive school days. The device(s) will be available for student retrieval at the conclusion of each school day for this situation only. All other confiscations must be retrieved by a parent and/or guardian.
