Dear HMS Parents,
GCISD is the B.E.S.T
With the help and flexibility of the students and teachers, our GCISD Technology Department have distributed over 860 laptops. This is incredible. We are fortunate to be in a school community which understands the necessity of teaching our students for the future.
As I've stated many times, the process and responsibility for student laptops will continue to evolve as we look for opportunities to improve. If there is ever a time you have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to contact me.
We are thankful for your support!
