There are bike racks available, and they should be used. Thank you for your cooperation with this!

DUE TO PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES TOMORROW, AFTER SCHOOL SNACKS WILL BE GIVEN OUT FROM THE ATHLETIC CONCESSION STAND BY THE MAIN GYM. – The GHS cafeteria is offering free after school snacks every day after school.  This program is for any student who is staying after school.

All students picking up the healthy snack after school will need to eat their snack in the cafeteria.  We appreciate your cooperation with this adjustment that is mandated by the state of Indiana in order to continue this program.
