A Message From The Administration:

We hope you’ve been enjoying your summer break.  Our Summer Academy has been up and running since Monday (07/08) and will go until Thursday (07/18).  This is a great opportunity for any high school student who failed any quarter last school year with a grade between a 50% – 69% to recover their credit(s).  We offer credit recovery for Math, Science, English, and Social Studies from 8:00am – 12:00pm on the following dates:

07/08, 07/09, 07/10, 07/11, 07/15, 07/16, 07/17, and 07/18.  Please note that this program is NOT about seat time.  Once a student has completed the formative and/or summative work that has been provided by their original teacher from last school year, they are free to leave.

Just a reminder that student laptops were collected just before the end of last school year.  Because we lease these devices, we are required to send them out to be inspected/serviced. If it is determined that a student’s device is damaged (and that damage is accidental), the student will be responsible for a $100 deductible.  If the damage is determined to be intentional, the student will be responsible for the full amount. (Note: The school does not make the determination of damage; that is done through the repair depot that we are required to use for inspections/service).  If a student was given permission to take their device home (to complete Honors, IB, or AP summer work), they will need to return their device during the week of 08/12. Any device not turned in by 08/16 may not be ready for the student until mid to late September (so please keep that in mind if you aren’t able to turn your device in by 08/16).  To replace a lost or damaged charger, the cost to the student will be $50; to replace a laptop carrying case, the cost will be $30.

For planning purposes, the first day of school (for students) is WEDNESDAY (08/28).  Students will have school on 08/28 & 08/29 and will be off on 08/30 – 09/02 for the Labor Day Weekend returning to school on 09/03. There will be a Freshmen Orientation Night for all incoming Freshmen (and any new student to GNGHS) on Monday (08/26) from 5:00pm – 8:00pm.

Our Guidance Office is closed until 08/19, so if you have any questions or needs from Guidance, please contact them on/after 08/19.  Our Main Office at the high school is open Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 1:00pm (subject to change). We will be sending out a mid-summer edition of our Patriot Express sometime during the week of 07/22 so be looking for this newsletter that week. Take care!
