A message from the staff at GHS...

GHS, We Miss You!

Troubleshooting Google classroom

An issue we have found with Google Classroom is students having difficulty logging on. When you seem stuck, try uninstalling, then reinstalling Google Classroom. The remedy has worked for quite a few, so far. Other issues, please give us call between 8:00 AM and 1:00 PM.


If you would like to receive the paper assignments, PLEASE let us know in advance. The delivery time is increased immensely. Next assignment pick up (and chance to see some of your teachers!) is Monday, April 6, 8:00-10:00 and 4:00- 6:00.

Assignment Pick Up

Assignment pick up was a little cold and rainy on Monday. That didn't stop a lot of you from showing up! NEW ASSIGNMENTS will be ready for pick on Monday, April 6, 8:00-10:00 and 4:00-6:00. You may also turn in completed assignments. Issues will happen as we navigate new procedures, PLEASE call (940) 612-5013 with any questions.

Senior Slide Show!

Photos are being collected for the senior slideshow. If you would like to have your senior featured in the slideshow, please include (3) pictures of the Senior only, not to include pictures with siblings, parents or friends. (You can include a baby picture, Junior High Picture, and a Senior Picture or any combination you like.) Place pictures in a sealed envelope with $10.00 and label it “Senior Photos’ and put your Senior’s name on it. Also please write your senior’s name on the back of each photo.

You may drop this envelope off at GHS on Mondays during the assignment pickup window. They are due by April 20.

Check Google Codes!

Some Google Codes have been added. Ms. McTyre, from Talent Search, is now on there, as well. Double check to make sure you are using the correct one. Questions? (940)612-5013

Google Classroom

Below are the steps to begin using Google Classroom. We are off to a great start but problems always arise, please email your teacher or me (dglancy@gainesvilleisd.org) to help get the issue resolved. You can also call 612-5013 (Direct line) or 665-5528 (GHS Office). The procedures remain the same.



  1. Go to classroom.google.com Please keep in mind that some teachers will still be setting up their accounts.
  2. Access using your school email account. “What’s my school email” is ALWAYS a question. First initial last name . Grad year @gainesvilleisd.com example: dglancy.1983@gainesvilleisd.com
  3. Click the plus "+" sign in the top right hand corner
  4. Add the codes of your teachers. The codes for each teacher and the specific period is listed below.

TSI On line Study Guide



When we return, students who want to take dual credit courses but have not passed the TSI, yet, will have to do so. The TSI on line study guide is a great way to prepare.


ACCUPLACER Free Web-Based Study App no longer requires students to “purchase” the free study app or provide an access code from the College Board store to activate their account. Instead, students are able to access the free, Web-Based Study App directly by signing up for an account with an active email address at accuplacerpractice.collegeboard.org

Parent Surveys...

Over the break, please take the time to fill out our parent survey. Your feedback is extremely important and guides the path GHS takes.
