Email invitations to subscribe to Stopfinder, which is our transportation software, have been sent for all students. The email invitation has been sent to the email address of the parent or guardian who is listed as the primary contact in our student information system. You may log in to Skyward to see who is listed as the primary contact. The primary contact is the first person.
Again, the email invitation will be from Stopfinder. If you do not see the email, please search your junk/spam folder. In the email, you will need to click the link to subscribe then you will need to download the Stopfinder app in order to access your child’s bus information including pick up and drop off times as well as bus stop location.
If you have any question or issues, please contact Supt. Dan Mair at email@example.com
Unfortunately, our Student Information System has not been correctly uploading to our new transportation software. This has caused about 1/3 of our parents/guardians to not get transportation information such as bus pick up times for their children. We have identified the problem and will get this corrected by the end of the day tomorrow.
If you have not received transportation info yet, you will by the end of the day tomorrow (August 11th)!
IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING STUDENT MEDICATIONS!
Our nurse will be at the school this Friday, August 12th from 8:00-12:30 for any parents needing to drop off student medications. If this time does not work, you may bring medications the first day of school. A parent or guardian must bring in all medications that will be distributed at school. Please remember, in order for medication to be given at the school, a Medicine Authorization Form needs to be filled out and signed by a provider per Illinois law. Also, if your child is prescribed an emergency medication, please be sure to have their provider fill out their Action Plan in addition to the Medicine Authorization Form, as this is also a requirement. Medicine Authorization Forms and Action Plans can be found on the new website under the Nurse’s Nook. Forms can be brought in, emailed or faxed.
Good Luck to the GHMS Softball team as they travel to Dunlap to take on the Dunlap Middle School Panthers for their first game of the season.

Baseball tryouts will be moved to the West gym today from 10:00-10:45. We will only be throwing bullpens. If you don’t want to get evaluated as a pitcher or catcher you do not have to show up.
