Remember all GT students are required to work on a Level 2 or Level 3 PBL project during the school year. If your child needs help, have them reach out to Mrs. Rivera at email@example.com
and she will help find a mentor.

GT testing for fall testers is taking a little longer than planned.

Important Information Regarding Attendance Reporting
When a student is absent from school, we ask parents to please report the absence to the front office team.
This must be submitted in written form either by email or by submitting an absence request on Skyward.
Unfortunately, we cannot take absence notifications over the phone.
You must report an absence within 3 days from the date your student is marked absent in order to modify it.
Any absence reported after 3 days will be marked as unexcused.
Any absence reported due to a medical appointment requires the proper documentation turned in or emailed to the front office.
Please refer to our student handbook, located on our official website, for attendance expectations and consequences. (pg. 17)
Thank you all for your support regarding this matter!

Drop-Off & Dismissal Notification
Dear Hawk Families,
Now that the school year is in full effect, please keep in mind the following:
1) It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that when leaving through the back of the school that ALL VEHICLES TURN RIGHT ON LAKE CREEK. This is a safety concern for parents, students, and all passers-by. Turning left on to Lake Creek is very difficult during dismissal hours. It slows down the traffic flow in the school, and it can be dangerous given the volume of traffic on Lake Creek at that time. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND ALL VEHICLES exiting our campus to turn right and turn around at the Walmart parking lot, or turn left onto 620 and turn south on 183 if you need to head south. Those two options are safer for you while driving, and will help the school greatly.
