Senior students and parents

Online voting will take place Friday May 3rd and will be open to the entire school.

Visit the below website for any questions or feel free to email me directly. (Dpringle@gainesvilleisd.com). Some individuals have had trouble accessing the site (and I'm still troubleshooting that).

Library book return for Ms. Perry

Parents/Students,

Please begin bringing library books back to school. The office is open each day from 8:00-1:00. Thank you so much for your assistance. We appreciate each and everyone of you!

TSI/ Dual Credit

If you have signed up for the first time to take a dual credit college class for next school year, you will be receiving a call from your counselor to set up a TSI test.

GHS closed for the remainder of the year; Distance Learning to continue

With Governor Abbott's order for all schools to remain closed for the remainder of the school year, GHS Distance Learning will continue for the rest of the year. Despite the challenges, it is imperative that students complete their work to the best of their ability whether on line through Google Classroom or through work assignment packets. Communication will be the key as teachers are being proactive in making contact to ensure students understand expectations.


There are many of questions. Below is sample of what we've been asked already.


Graduation We are, currently, looking at alternatives to our traditional ceremony at UNT. We will announce those plans as soon as we have a solid plan in place. The goal is to still have graduation on May 27.


On campus activities through May, such as Class Night, Baccalaurette, spring concerts and certain banquets are canceled. We are exploring other ideas to celebrate our hard-working students.


Prom is an off-campus event that we still hope to have, but just as with all events in our city, we would be restricted to our options if there is an extension of the current group gathering requirements. Unfortunately, this would be out of our control.


We will not have final exams. Our current grading policy requires two grades per week. Completing your assignments is critical for seniors to graduate and underclassmen to get credit for this year and advance to the next grade for 2020-21.


An office secretary is here from 8:00-1:00 each day. Administrators are on campus everyday, as well.


Please feel free to shoot me an email with any question or call. I understand your need to know. Chances are many others have your same question.

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
