GHS Update

April 13, 2020

We'll see you Monday...

You may turn in assignments on Monday, April 13 from 8:00 and until 10:00, and then, from 4:00 until 6:00. If you didn't pick up your work packet last Monday, you may pick it up this Monday, as well. There will be NO NEW WORK PACKETS until next Monday, April 20.

Seniors...

ATTENTION GAINESVILLE HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 2020!!!

Jostens will be on campus Tuesday, April 14th to pass out graduation orders (caps, gowns, and grad announcements) from 1:30pm until 3:00pm at the main entrance of GHS. This is a drive thru and pick up service only, so you will stay in your car and they will serve you.

Things to know:

  • Please make final payments prior to arrival
    • Online: (check your email for an invoice with individual instructions)
    • By Phone: 1-800-JOSTENS (567-8367) Monday - Friday only during normal business hours
  • Stay in your car since this is a drive thru service only
  • Remain patient if a line forms before you arrive. Experience tells us this is a quick grab and go exercise as long as you pay in full ahead of time.
  • We are offering this impromptu service for those individuals who have been anxious to receive their products before the May 4 return to school date. We will have other options later in the spring for those items not picked-up during this event, but we encourage everyone to come get their items on the 14th if they can.

*New orders may be placed online at www.Jostens.com or by phone at 1-800-JOSTENS (567-8367)


Photos for 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.

Juniors...

Class rings for the Class of 2021 will also be delivered by Josten's between 1:30 and 3:00 on Tuesday, April 14. Arrive at the front of GHS and will bring them to you. It will be similar to the assignment pick up we've run on Mondays.

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
