Our Policy
Student ID Cards

All students must have a GHS Student ID card. Temporary IDs are $1.00 or a demerit. A replacement ID is $5.00. 

Temporary and replacement IDs are available for purchase during attendance office hours.



General Excused Absence


In order for an absence to be excused, the student must bring a note to the attendance office before or after school within two school days of the absence. The note should be signed by the legal guardian with a valid phone number and include the exact dates of the absence, plus the reason for the absence.


Medically Excused Absence

An absence will be considered medically excused, only if the student brings in a note from the doctor within two school days of the absence, documenting the exact time and date of appointment or illness.


Pre-Arranged Absence

pre-arranged absence must be arranged 10 school days in advance and will count toward the ten-day absence rule. Pre-arranged absence forms must be turned to the attendance office to be reviewed for approval.



Students late to school must check-in with the attendance office to receive a pass. Students who have been in school but are tardy to class must go to their next period class. Tardy to class students will receive a demerit in the Orbit Behavior Management System for being late, and no pass shall be given/accepted other than late to school.



Leaving Early


Students must be signed out of school by a parent or others listed on the emergency card. Parents may pick up students in the attendance office. A government photo ID must be presented. Students may not be released after 1:45pm (12:45pm on Wednesdays). Please arrive early enough to expedite your child's release.
