Technology Department Information:
The window to get GSD Technology Protection plan for student devices closes on November 18th, 2022. At that point any repairs submitted for student devices could be charged to the student at full cost if they have not already opted in. This would impact all students 2nd grade through 12th grade. *As K & 1 do not go home nightly they are currently exempt from this issue.

A final note on volunteering! The best way to ensure you are able to participate in school activities to the fullest capacity is to obtain your independent clearances. For example, field trips are making a comeback this year but only Independently cleared volunteers will be able to attend. Information on the required documentation can be found at https://www.gatewayk12.org/resources/volunteer-resources. Once your paperwork is submitted your application will need to be approved by the school board (meetings are mid-month).
