Drop-Off/Pick-Up Procedures

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
drop off pick up

We wanted to provide you a reminder of drop-off and pick-up procedures:

*Please follow the indicated route (in yellow) to drop-off students before school and pick-up students after school at door 32 (until 2:40 pm or 2:10 pm on Wednesdays).
*Please avoid the front parking lot (in red) so staff can enter safely and buses can unload in a safe manner.  After the buses depart in the morning (7:15 am), some of you have been dropping students off in the front.  While not encouraged, please understand there will be no one directing traffic at this time and you should follow traffic rules and signs.  After the buses depart in the afternoon (2:40 pm or 2:10 pm on Wednesdays), there will be someone directing traffic at the "T" by the school until approximately 12 minutes after school ends.  Again, you should follow traffic rules and signs when no one is directing.

We understand and recognize this procedure may require you arrive earlier in the mornings or later in the afternoons to avoid lines, but we believe it is in the best interest of all students.  Thus, please make the necessary accomodations and adjustments to help each school day begin and end as best it can.

Canvas

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
GHS now utilizes Canvas as a learning management system.  Teachers are being asked to do the following:  

1)  Maintain a front page with contact information along with course rules/information.
2)  Utilize the calendar feature to announce major work (i.e. tests, papers, projects, etc.).
3)  Increase student online submissions in honors' courses.

Many teachers are going above these year one expectations by including additional, useful information for students.  As a parent/guardian, you have the ability to link to your child's account and become an "observer" in Canvas to view what teachers post relevant to course material.  You will not be able to see any other students' information, scores, or work.

To sign up, go to the Greenwood High School homepage (http://www.gws.k12.in.us/greenwood-high-school).  Under the "Parents" link, select "Canvas."  You will enter your name and email address along with your child's username/password and you can begin observing.  We hope you find this system beneficial as you help your child stay up to date and perform his/her best in all of his/her academic pursuits.
