NEWS & UPDATES
iPad Insurance and Summer Policy

As the end of another successful school year approaches, we are pleased to offer the opportunity for students to keep their iPads over the summer. Since there is a need to protect the investment in iPads by the District, there are two options available to families wishing to keep them for the summer:


1) have insurance or obtain insurance on the iPad. Insurance can be

purchased from Securranty HERE: http://goo.gl/72nLwC. This link is

also available on the GHS website or you can reach them by phone:

877-592-7726


2) sign a waiver accepting full financial responsibility ($399) for any

damage to the iPad. Waiver form can be signed HERE:

  • Those that are interested in keeping the iPad over the summer must select one of the above options by June 20, 2014.


  • Those that do not wish to keep the iPad over the summer need to turn in their device by June 23, 2014.  Students will be allowed to turn them in at any point during final exams.  Collection will occur in the Commons.



“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and

teacher’s hand because it is the lens through which we experience much

Art Highlight of the Week
Freshman Art Foundations student Heather Rowell used a straightforward and carefully-crafted background to showcase the main idea of her surreal composition: a hybrid figure. The focus is on humor bordering on ridiculous and high contrast. Great design too, Heather!
