Lockers are optional for GHS students. Students, if you are interested in using a locker this year, please complete this form. The form must be completed from a student school email account.

Do Not Fill Out This Form if you signed up for a locker last year as you will use the same locker and combination this year.

Locker numbers and combinations will be uploaded into PowerSchool before school starts. Students can find their locker number and combination in PowerSchool by clicking on Forms and selecting "Locker Information".

If you have a locker assigned to you but no longer need it, please complete the form and indicate you no longer need your locker.

If you do not request a locker now and decide you’d like one in the future, please come to the main office and we will be happy to check one out to you.

Students, please click here to request a locker.

Student Schedules

Student schedules are not yet finalized. Schedules will be available to view and print in PowerSchool on the evening of August 18th for families who have completed the Annual Forms, and on the evening of August 20th for those who have not filled out the form. Students will not be given a copy of their schedule on the first day of school, so please bring your own copy. Students needing to request a change to their initial course registration for next year should visit Counselors will view those requests and determine if changes are possible.

Schedule Change Requests:

Our goal is to have all students attend all of their classes on the first day of school. Counselors will not be making schedule changes on the first day of school, unless it is to drop a class for a study hall. Accommodating schedule changes becomes increasingly difficult as our high school continues to grow. There are limited opportunities for schedule changes.

Students may come in on a first come, first served basis at the following times:

  • Seniors Only - Monday, August 21st, 8:30am – 12:00pm
  • All grade levels - Monday, August 21st, 1:00pm – 3:30pm

Congratulations to Raptor alumna, Olivia Collins, who was named Montana's Gatorade Player of the Year for Soccer for the second year in a row!
