Required Transportation Forms Due

Transportation request forms for next school year were sent home with class registration letters in March.  These forms were due prior to Spring Break.  It is very important that students returns these forms to the Counseling Department as soon as possible.  Transportation forms are needed to confirm a student’s transportation for arrival and departure for next school year.  These are particularly important if your student plans to ride the bus or continue riding the bus next year, or if your student’s means of transportation will be different next year.  Transportation forms for all 8th graders are needed and will be shared with their assigned high school.

Parent Backpack

parent backpack logoParent Backpack is an online application that has replaced the PowerSchool Parent Portal.  With Parent Backpack, you are able to view your child's grades, school attendance, lunch balance and class schedules when you are logged into the system. Parent Backpack works on any device and is mobile friendly.   Parents are reminded that once they have created their online Parent Backpack account, they must link their students using their Student ID (found on their progress report, report card, or class schedule).  After this process is complete, parents must then visit their child’s school and present their government issued photo ID in order for the school to approve their pending request.
Parents will find Parent Backpack on the GCS Portal Page GCS portal logo
