Homecoming


This week is Homecoming. Friday September 25, our band, cheer, football team, and ROTC will be performing at the Homecoming festivities. Our schools have special dress up days for our students this week. Please encourage your children to enjoy Homecoming week but remain safe. Students meeting in large groups, getting in vehicles with other people, not wearing masks and not social distancing will put students at a higher risk for COVID-19. Please encourage your children to do the right things.



Please complete: new free/reduced lunch application online.

The deadline is soon approaching for cutoff from last school year's benefits.

1st Nine Weeks Tests


Administering the upcoming nine weeks’ tests during the week of October 5 will be challenging. All students (virtual, hybrid, and traditional) will be required to go on site to their respective school to take certain nine weeks tests. The purpose in students taking nine weeks tests at their school building is to obtain accurate data which will show students’ strengths and weaknesses on the skills tested. Teachers will then know on which standards your child may need additional assistance.

On-site exams will be required in the following subjects: K-8 (Math, Reading/Language) 5th and 8th Science High School Classes: English I, English II, Foundation of Algebra, Algebra I, Foundation of Biology, Biology I, U.S. History

Hybrid and virtual students will be taking test(s) in classes where social distancing will be practiced and wearing a mask will be required. Principals will be sending out an Aims Call message on testing procedures for each school.

Make Appointments for Immunizations

The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) is urging parents to act now and schedule their child’s age-appropriate immunizations. Mississippi state law requires children to be immunized against childhood diseases to enter public or private school, Head Start or daycare.

Make an appointment at your county health department clinic to bring your child in for their immunizations. A list of county health department locations along with times and days the clinics are open can be found at www.HealthyMS.com/locations.

Parents should bring the child’s social security card and insurance card if available. Parents and children over 2 must wear a mask when entering the county health department clinic.
For more information on immunizations, visit www.HealthyMS.com/immunizations. Follow MSDH by e-mail and social media at HealthyMS.com/connect.

Valedictorian and Salutatorian

The Valedictorian and Salutatorian, the top two students in the class, may not have had the opportunity to deliver their speech to the hundreds of people normally in attendance, but this in no way diminishes the work they put in to achieve these honors. Four years of hard work and dedication brought these two students to the highest achievements attainable in high school. And yes, they did get to give their speeches; they just delivered them on video.

At the January meeting of the GSD Board of Trustees, Kevin Carnathan was sworn in as the new board president, filling the seat previously held by Brent Brasher. Also sworn in was Haley Biddy, the board's newest member. The Biddy family has been well-represented in GSD for many years. Haley's father, Bobby Biddy, is a renowned carpenter with the district's maintenance department, and his sister, Kim Graves, is a counselor as GES PreK-3. Haley's grandfather, Brigadier General James Harold Biddy, served as a member of the GSD Board from 1965 to 1976.
