  • $21 for the 2021s.  The senior class of 2021 has missed out on pretty much their entire senior year. Most

Community Service

 

Socially Distant Community Service Project Ideas

  • Help a neighbor out! Painting, yard work, or repair items outside of the home.
  • Start a fundraiser for a cause that inspires you! (collect clothing, canned goods etc. to donate)
  • Clean up trash in your neighborhood or a local park.
  • Deliver meals, groceries etc. to homebound people.
  • Know a senior citizen in town? Call them to check-in, see if they need any help!
  • Volunteer at a local food pantry.
  • Offer dog walking services to those who need help walking their pets.

 

 


ITEMS DROPPED OFF:  

 

  • Parents and caregivers must wear a mask before entering the building and are asked to leave the item(s) in a cart located outside the main office window. Please make sure all items are clearly labeled with your student’s name. The main office secretary will notify the student to pick-up their belongings.  Please note that an all-call is made throughout the school at 10:42 a.m. and the students will pick up their item.  We do not interrupt classes for individual students.

 

Dismissals

  • The reasons for excusing dismissals will follow the same guidelines that are set forth for absences.  Any student who is going to be dismissed must turn in a note to the office the morning of the dismissal or can be emailed to dismissals@geogetown.k12.ma.us.   The note must be signed by a parent/guardian, and must state the time and the specific reason for the dismissal.  Any dismissals that do not meet the guidelines that are set forth by the state regulations will result in an unexcused absence.  Dismissals via a phone call can only be accepted for emergency situations.  All dismissals due to illness must go through the school nurse.
  • Any student who gets dismissed before 11:00 a.m. and does not return to school will be counted as absent, and will not be eligible for that day’s co-curricular events.  In addition, dismissals that do not meet the criteria for excused absences will not be excused, resulting in the loss of participation in co-curricular events for that day.  Any dismissals due to illness also preclude the student’s participation in co-curricular activities.

Schoology- Schoology is the GMHS learning management system (LMS). Schoology is where you can go to access announcements from teachers, assignments, and assessments. The tech team will be working with different groups of students over the next few weeks to train and coach them with Schoology.

 

Tech Tips and Common Tech Questions:

  1. Your Schoology username is your school email address.

  2. You can reset your own Schoology password at any time by going to www.Schoology.com and click the forgot password. Follow the instructions to reset it using your School email address.

  3. Your classes are preloaded for you in Schoology. You do not need any access codes to see them. If they are not, please reach out to Ms. Marchett or Mrs. Schwarzkopf to assist you.

  4. If you change your schedule for any reason, Schoology will reflect your schedule changes the next school day automatically.

  5. Schoology parent access is coming in the next week or so. Stay tuned for more information regarding parental access.

  6. The Zoom links for your classes will also be posted in your Schoology course page.

  7. Please see the training videos posted on the Principal’s Blog and the GMHS website for more information on Schoology, Portal, and Google.

  8. If downloading an app from self service and you get a pinwheel try again later. It means we are out of licenses for the app and need to reload. We are aware when this happens so you do not have to tell us.

  9. If you are bringing your own device from home and would like to purchase self service please go here to do so. Once you have paid for self service please email Mr. Swaim at swaimp@georgetown.k12.ma.us to arrange for the installation.
