GHS Update

Students attend Manufacturing Day

Our outstanding counselors took over a hundred students to get a close up view of Gainesville's top manufacturing companies. We are extremely appreciative of Orteq, Trident Process Systems, Molded Fiber Glass, Muenster Millimg, Universal Machining, Reliant Plastics, Safran Seats, Duraline and GAF for opening their doors to us and giving our students an opportunity to gain real life experiences.

Leopards attend UIL conference at UT Austin

Our UIL Speech and Debate members got to sit in on several sessions to learn more about the events they compete in while they attended the UT Student Activity Conference on Saturday. They had a lot of fun and gained some valuable knowledge that they can now share with their team members.

Jade Conner had the honor of performing her Prose piece during one of the sessions. She got to demonstrate to those that attended how to properly perform a Prose piece. She was personally asked to attend and perform by the UIL State Speech and Debate Director and she certainly represented GHS UIL to the fullest.

Parking Passes

All vehicles parked in the student parking lot will be required to have a parking pass. To obtain a parking pass, the student must bring $5, driver's license, proof of insurance, and picture of their license plate to the front desk. Students must also have a drug testing consent form on file.

Beginning Tuesday, August 27, all vehicles in student parking that do not have the required permit will be formally warned with an orange warning sticker.

Beginning Monday, September 16, all vehicles in student parking without the required permit will be towed.

Thank you for helping us keep our campuses safe and secure!

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.
