Important Message for Parents and Students 

With all learning being converted to online at this time, please be mindful that it is extremely important for students to check their assignments daily for all classes on Google Classroom. Students should reach out to their teachers if they need assistance or have questions via email. Beginning the week of March 23rd, students will also be required to begin participating in online virtual meetings with their teachers and classmates through “Google Meets” or “Zoom”. Teachers will be conducting these meetings during their regularly scheduled class times to prevent overlapping of meetings between classes. Individual teachers will be providing their meeting information through their Google Classrooms. Parents, thank you for all that you are doing to help your children be successful during this major change in the learning process. We are here to help all families in any way possible!

    Tuesday, October 15, 2019
    Friday, January 17, 2020**
    Tuesday, February 18, 2020
  • **January 16, 2020, will now be a full day, and January 17, 2020, will be a half-day with a 2.5 hour early dismissal for students. With these alterations to the student calendar, the first semester will now end on January 17, 2020, instead of January 16, 2020, for grading purposes. February 17, 2020, will be a Teacher Work/Staff Development Day and a Student Holiday, unless a make-up day is required due to a future school cancellation. 

Important Notice - GSFH is a Closed Campus

  • CLOSED CAMPUS: Please be reminded that GSFM/HS operates a "closed campus" system. Students are expected to remain in the building for the entire day once they arrive at school. Students do not leave campus without permission from the administration and the parents. Violation of this regulation is considered "cutting school" and is subject to disciplinary action. Students will not be allowed to leave the building and return except for scheduled doctor appointments that are confirmed with the doctor's office or when accompanied by a parent. Leaving campus to retrieve "forgotten" items, eat lunch, or take care of personal business will result in an unexcused absence and the student will not be allowed to return for any classes the remainder of the day unless special permission is given by the principal. No food is allowed to be delivered to students from an outside vendor.
Trojans Tappers Practices
  • Practices will be every week on Tuesday mornings.
  • Contact Mrs. Melody Edge with any questions.

ATTENTION SENIORS! - The FAFSA application opened up in October. All students interested in financial aid for college are required to complete this form, and many colleges require that all students complete FAFSA regardless. The application is free to submit. The FAFSA is available for filing online at https://fafsa.ed.gov. 

To complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you will need:

  • Your Social Security Number
  • Your Alien Registration Number (if you are not a U.S. citizen)
  • Your most recent federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned. (Note: You may be able to transfer your federal tax return information into your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.)
  • Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)
  • Records of untaxed income (if applicable)
  • An FSA ID to sign electronically. 

If you are a dependent student, then you will also need most of the above information for your parent(s). 

The deadline for the 2018-2019 FAFSA is midnight, Central Time, June 30, 2019. The earlier you file, the more grant money you are likely to receive (up to twice as much). Filing early also helps to ensure you don’t miss FAFSA deadlines for state and college aid, which may differ from the federal deadline. You can find state FAFSA deadlines at https://fafsa.ed.gov/deadlines.htm. For a specific school’s FAFSA deadline, contact the college directly.

Google Classroom Scholarship Information

  • A Google Classroom for scholarship information has been created for grades 9-12.  Interested students should join the classroom in order to see available scholarships. Please use the following classroom code to join: rvp1ge. 

High School Class Google Classroom Codes

  • Below are the codes for students to join their respective grade Google Classrooms. This is the best way (besides announcements) for them to receive information. It is also how seniors will be voting for senior superlatives and submitting items for the yearbook. If a student joined his or her classroom last year, it is the same class, and they do not need to rejoin. However, it would help for them just to check that they are still in it.
