Attention 8th Graders and families: Mark your calendars for those students that plan to apply for special permission to attend a different high school other than your zoned school. The GCS Change in Assignment School Choice Lottery application window is open from November 13th - December 1st. Parents must apply in person at your first choice school.
The Sexual Health and Responsibility Education Unit will be taught November 27-December 6 by the PE department to students currently enrolled in PE. If a parent does not want their child to participate in the sexual health & responsibility unit or a specific portion of the unit, they must bring the signed attached exemption form to the front office in person. The form cannot be dropped off by the student. By School Board Policy and SC Comprehensive Health Education Law, students who exempt sexual health & responsibility education will be required to complete other health-related self-study lessons.
In an effort to minimize teaching disruptions, our staff will no longer call into classrooms during classroom instruction for walk-in dismissals and forgotten items. It is more important than ever to remember to follow early dismissal procedures. Students planning to have an early dismissal should come to the front office upon arrival at school on the day of their dismissal and turn in a parent note stating the time and reason for the dismissal. If someone other than a parent or legal guardian is picking up the student, the person’s name should be specified on the note. The student will receive a dismissal slip as their pass out of class. FORGOT YOUR NOTE? COME TO THE OFFICE ANYWAY TO SCHEDULE THE DISMISSAL. Walk-in dismissals will be released at class change.
Wear your ID badge on your break-away lanyard (around your neck) everyday during school. Store your ID in your bookbag each day after school to ensure it returns back to school with you. Students without ID must get a Temporary ID. Upon requesting your 5th temporary ID, students will have an ID Badge printed and the $5 will be charged to their student account and need payment to clear the debt. See Student ID Badge Policy for full details. ID badges cost $5. Replacement plastic sleeves cost $2, Replacement lanyards cost $2.
Cell phones and other personal communication devices must be silenced and put away from 7:30am - 3:25pm. Students observed using their cell phone, smart watch, or personal electronic devices will be directed to lock up these items for the remainder of the day in a school locker.
Car line procedures are posted on the website. Students are not allowed to be dropped off or picked up off campus. Students that are car riders are expected to have their ride on campus by 3:45pm. All car riders must be picked up by 4:00pm. Students that are not picked up by 4pm must have their ride come in and sign them out.
