GHS Dress Code Reminders

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
GHS students and parents:
Good afternoon. From time to time, our school needs to address specific policy issues, similar to many business environments. This email is a gentle reminder to ensure all students are following our dress code policy, which is located in our student handbook, pages 21-22. As we begin a new semester, now is a good time to make improvements. To assist you in better understanding our concerns, here are some of the most common dress code violations. Hoods, beanies, bandanas, and baseball (all) hats are not permitted. Holes in jeans are not permitted. Slight rips are fine, but larger holes above the knees are a violation. Pajamas, house slippers, and blankets are not permitted. Dresses, skirts and shorts must be knee length. Boys in particular are wearing gym shorts considered too short. In general, all clothing must cover all skin from shoulders to knees when standing or bending.
*If you’ve worn clothing in the past that violates our dress code, please do not wear those items to school in the future. Beginning this semester, we will reinstate our after-school detention program for dress code and other violations. After-school detention will take place from 2:30-3:30 in the HS cafeteria. We will share this information with our students as well. For the vast majority of you, there will be no need to make changes in your day. Thank you for continuing to follow our handbook. For those students who knowingly violate the handbook, please note your behavior will be addressed accordingly. Thank you for your understanding and enjoy your weekend. Continue reading

Tuesday, October 26 is PSAT Testing Day


On Tuesday, October 26, GHS will be administering the PSAT to all students grades 9-11. The PSAT provides students and teachers important data that helps determine students' level of college and career readiness, and it better prepares students for the SAT exam. 


Testing Time:

Officially, October 26 will be an E-Learning day for students grades 9-12. Students in grades 9-11 will be expected to be in attendance at GHS for the PSAT exam. The exam will begin sharply at 7:30am, and we anticipate students to be released at approximately 11:00am. Once students are dismissed from their testing room, they may either exit the building for the day or report to the cafeteria for lunch. Students who have an IEP or 504 (allowing additional time) should finish the PSAT exam at approximately 12:15pm (noon).  


Seniors will not report to GHS on Tuesday, October 26. Since October 26 is an E-Learning day, seniors will be expected to complete assignments at home. We also encourage all seniors to schedule senior capstone mentoring hours on this day. 


Lunch:

Students (grades 9-11) are not required to eat lunch at GHS; however, we will provide a regular lunch for all students (9-11) if they report to the cafeteria after the exam. 


Buses:

Students (grades 9-11) are permitted to leave the building once the school releases them from the testing room. If students do not have a ride home, busses will pick students up at 12:30pm and drop them off at their regular bus stop. All students riding the bus home must remain in the cafeteria until busses arrive at 12:30pm. Students are not permitted to leave the campus and return to catch a bus home.  Continue reading
