GHS Update

September 29, 2019

Join the District Parent Advisory Committee

At GISD we strive to continuously improve our district through a cooperative effort between our schools, parents, and the community. As a means to provide an avenue for this conversation, Dr. Stewart will once again form a Parent Advisory Committee. The PAC is open to any parent or community member who is willing to provide feedback and input into what our district is doing well and what can be improved upon.

The PAC will meet four times throughout the year, with the first meeting being held on Monday, September 30, from 5:30-6:30pm at the Administration building, 800 S. Morris St.


Additional meetings will be held on November 21, January 23, and April 23.

If you are interested in being a valuable member of this group, please contact Kay Neu at 940-665-4362 or kneu@gainesvilleisd.org.

Parent Teacher conferences, Friday, Oct. 11th

In two weeks, we invite you to come to GHS and individually meet your student's teachers. You may meet with one or all of their teachers. Our teachers will be contacting you or you may call us here and we can set up times for you. Spots will fill up quickly so if there a specific time or teacher you would like to me, let us know soon.

School Pictures, Tuesday, October 1st

Lifetouch will be on campus to take school pictures for freshmen through juniors on Tuesday.

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.
