Director of Residence Life’s Corner

Greetings,

I cannot believe how fast the semester has gone by.  We are nearing the end of October and first quarter.

We are so very excited for having students on campus.  We have students from all over this great state joining us here.

We have been in school for a little while now, students have been doing an outstanding job.  Even with all the extra policies in place with face masks and family groups.  We have had a variety of student activities.  Our first newsletter should be going out soon.

Students have all received their school computers, they all have GCSD email accounts.  All students have signed the computer usage agreements.  As a staff we will be communicating more thru email to students.  Please remind them to check this daily. We are also using MS TEAMs to communicate daily with students.

Our first family call-in went very well.

Please feel free to contact me at any time you have any questions, please give me a call or email me
