GJSHS completed our first ever virtual WASC visit this past week! The visiting team observed classrooms and had meetings with students, staff, and parents all via Zoom! We received great feedback and should receive our final report within the next month. Thank you to all of you who participated!

GJSHS still has space for students interested in participating in a conditioning hub beginning the week of October 5. Bridgett Bustamante is looking for student-athletes who are interested in getting back in shape for the anticipated return of sports. If you are interested, please email me as the number of students will be limited!

This week some of you may have received a text, email, or phone call regarding an absence for your child. Attendance is taken in both synchronous (daily live instruction via Zoom) as well as asynchronous (Canvas, APEX, etc.) learning times. This year we are reporting engagement in distance learning to the state. Please contact your child's teacher or the office if you have questions.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. We are here to help!

Important Information About Attendance

From Mrs. Timmins, GES/GJSHS Registrar and Attendance Clerk

Attendance is vital part of learning. We want parents and students to be able to understand how we are documenting attendance this year. This year attendance is based on student engagement in distance learning. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher or Mrs. Timmins at

  • Students who do not attend zoom meetings will be marked absent. If you are having difficulties with getting on a zoom or if you miss a zoom meeting due to illness or a medical appt. e-mail your teacher or call the school office.
  • Students should be working on their school work for every class, EVERY DAY, even if you did not have a Zoom meeting that day. Attendance is taken for work done each day in each class.
