In an effort to continue your student’s instruction and to complete required lessons for the 2019-2020 school year throughout this indefinite school closure, GPISD is moving all instruction online. We know that this learning mode may be new and different for most of you, but we are here to help in any way that we can. Our teachers will continue to deliver high-quality instruction in the methods described below.
GPHS teachers will be reaching out to parents this week via Skyward email. Please check your email regularly for your student’s course lessons, resources, assignments, and deadlines. Respond to your student’s teachers to confirm that you are receiving their emails and let them know if your student needs technology support. See Skyward Access information below if you need help.
All teachers will be linking course content via Canvas, so that you have a one-stop-shop to see all of your student’s lessons and assignments. Some specialized courses (AP, Dual Credit, Practicum CTE, etc.) may be using a different online platform, but these are tools with which your students are already familiar.
Teachers will be available throughout this period to provide additional support in any way that they can. We are committed to your student’s success. Please contact your student’s teacher if you have any content-specific questions.
Grades will continue to be posted in Skyward. Please monitor your student’s progress there and reach out if you have questions. Access your account here -> Skyward Family Access
GPISD Instructional Resources
GPISD’s Teaching and Learning Department has put together an information page containing several valuable instructional resources for parents and students. Please visit www.gpisd.org/OnlineEnrichment for more.

We know that many of you have concerns about how all of these changes will affect your senior students. We are in daily conversations with district and state officials, receiving clarifications and guidance as it relates to our graduating students. We will continue to monitor information and post all updates here.
Teachers will be communicating with parents via Skyward email. Please be sure to have your current email updated in your Skyward Family Access Portal. If you need your login or password information, please contact your student’s counselor. Access your Skyward Family Portal at https://skyward.iscorp.com/scripts/wsisa.dll/WService=wsedugrandprairietx/seplog01.w
During this unprecedented time, our counseling team wants and needs you to stay healthy; physically, mentally, emotionally, and academically. Take care of yourselves and your families. Know that we are thinking of you and will continue to be available here or via email if you need any assistance.

If your student runs into any other technology issues, please reach out to our fabulous Instructional Media team. They can help you work through any issues that might arise during your time away from campus. If you did not receive a device earlier in the school year and are needing one now, they will be able to help with that, too.
