The Grizzly Den is not a study hall but was created as a period that allows students to explore their interests during the school day while bonding with other students and a teacher that share those similar interests. Students will not only build a strong social support and learn about the Grizzly GROWL (Growth, Respect, Ownership, Work ethic, Leadership), but have time to pursue those interests which can help them identify life, health, college, and/or career goals. Grizzly Den options include topics in all areas of multiple intelligences (mathematical/logical, linguistic, musical, interpersonal, naturalist, visual/spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, intrapersonal) and provides students an opportunity to join a club or organization they would otherwise not be able to participate in due to after school time constraints (Student Council, Key Club, etc). The Grizzly Den period will be every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:20-10:55. We can't wait to see all of the amazing friendships, ideas, artwork, and service projects that will develop as a result of the Grizzly Den.
Early Check Out
Checking out prior to 2:35 dismissal?
*Send a signed note with the student to school, stating the check-out time and the reason for leaving.
*The student will leave the note with the attendance clerk.
*A Permit to Leave form from the Attendance Office during the morning or lunch.
*Your student will meet you in the Attendance Office at the designated time.
Students who drive to school may check themselves out provided they have a parent note authorizing them to do so and a Permit to Leave form issued by the Attendance Office.
Check Out Time
Students may not be checked out after 2:00 on regular release days. They may not be checked out after 11:10 on early release days.
Students will only be released to parent(s) or guardian(s) as specified in their official school records. If you want to authorize another individual to pick up your student, you must include that information in your note. Please be aware we may call you for verification. Everyone checking out a GOHS student must present a photo ID.
Scheduling Teacher Conferences
1. Always contact the teacher about your concern first by email or phone call. Be patient in waiting for a reply, giving about a 24 hour wait time.
2. After contacting the teacher and the concern is not resolved then contact your student's counselor requesting a conference. The conference will be set up to include the parent/guardian. student, teacher, and counselor.
Verification of Enrollment
A Verification of Enrollment (VOE) is required for students applying for a Driver’s Permit or a Driver’s License.
A VOE is needed to verify enrollment and attendance in school for students under the age of 18.
VOE’s can be obtained at the Attendance Office from 7 AM to 3 PM Monday through Friday. Student’s are required to show an ID at time of request. Please allow 24 to 48 hours for your request to be processed.
Grand Oaks does not house a Driver Education Program this year.
Students at GOHS follow block scheduling. Students will have an Orange Day schedule and a Blue Day schedule. The Orange Day schedule has all of the student’s odd classes, the Blue Day schedule will have all of the student’s even classes.
For example, the first day of school will be an Orange Day, the next Blue,
then Orange and it will continue to alternate during the course of the school year. This schedule allows students to have longer periods for core classes on certain days, providing more concentrated instruction time. The schedule is provided on the school’s website.
Yearbooks are sold through the yearbook class, not through the PTO. Order forms will be available at Student Orientation.
There will be a limited supply of extra yearbooks for sale during May distribution. If you have any questions about the yearbook please email the yearbook teacher.
