New ID Badge Procedures

icon: ID BadgeAll students and staff are required to wear an ID badge throughout the school day, per GCSD policy. Beginning on Monday, September 16, there will be a new procedure put into effect for students who come to school without their ID badge:

- A student who arrives at school without their ID may go to the Media Center before 8:45 AM and purchase a new one for $5.00 with no penalty. New badges will not be printed after 8:45 AM, and students may not "charge their account" for a new ID badge.

- If the student cannot pay for the ID that day, or if it is after 8:45 AM, the student will be issued a temporary ID (yellow sticker) which must be worn and visible for the school day. It is the responsibility of the student to keep up with their temporary ID during the day. If a student loses their sticker, they will be sent to receive a new one.

- After being issued 3 temporary IDs, the student will be sent to ISS (In-School Suspension) the following school day, and will be charged for a new ID on the day of ISS.

Chromebook FAQ: Getting Online at Home

icon: world globe with unlocked padlock and WWWIs your student having trouble accessing certain websites at home, but they work fine at school? They probably just need to use the GCSD Authentication portal.

The GCSD firewall follows students on their Chromebooks and works even more strongly when students take the devices off of district property. If your student is having trouble accessing the internet on home or public wi-fi, it is because of this firewall. Students will often be able to access their email and Google Drive, but not much else when this is the case. To gain access, students must follow these steps to authenticate their wi-fi source.

If you have any other questions about student Chromebooks, their functionality, or are experiencing any problems, please visit our MMS Chromebooks page. You may also email our Technology Clerk, Mrs. Wylie, if you do not find what you're looking for on the site.


PTA Spirit Night @ The Habitap

icon: PTA Spirit NightFor our first PTA Spirit Night of the school year, we invite you to come out to The Habitap on Monday, September 23 from 5:00-8:00 PM.

The Habitap is a fun, new full-service restaurant with a great menu and family-friendly environment. Families must inform their server they are with MMS, and they will give back 10% of those profits to the MMS PTA! Bring your family and friends, and meet up with your classmates for a fun night out.

This is the first Spirit Night this local business has ever done, and we are honored to partner with them. Let's be sure to show them lots of Mustang spirit!
