Important Reminder - December 20th (the day before our Winter Break) is a scheduled FULL day of instruction on the 2023-2024 Academic Calendar.
Important message from the Transportation Department: One of our route buses was delayed this afternoon due to a belt breaking. We promptly had another bus dispatched and delivered all students home safely. That bus is still on the side of the road, but please know that everyone who was on the bus is safe at home. Instead of paying a tow truck, we have opted to replace the belt onsite, and that will be done tomorrow. Thank you for your patience this afternoon.
Tiger Family, It's always important to stay informed of what is happening in our state with regards to education. This week, the Texas House will consider House Bill 1 which includes a voucher system with universal eligibility for students. According to the Legislative Budget Board, the voucher program will cost $2 billion in the second year of the program and grow each year. This creates a significant new financial commitment for the state while public schools remain underfunded by more than $14 billion.

Tiger Family, Thank you for your patience with us today as we dealt with the water outage. The water break has been repaired and Gunter ISD will be back in session at regular time tomorrow. Buses will run on their normal schedule as well. See you tomorrow!
Important Message from GISD Transportation (11/8): Bus routes will run the same as they do each day, except earlier due to the city wide water outage. Parents unable to get home at the time your children are to be let out, call the transportation office at 903-696-1500.
Important Notice (November 8th): Due to the city-wide water outage, Gunter ISD will be releasing our students early. High School/Middle School students will be released at 12:30 PM and Elementary students will be released at 1:00 PM. All dismissal procedures will be the same; just earlier. Thank you for your patience as we navigate these unforeseen circumstances.
Don't forget to set your clocks back tonight before you go to sleep!
Just a little Halloween fun at our district. We had so many great costumes... this is just a sample! Be safe tonight if you are trick or treating. Wear bright colors, carry a flashlight, be careful crossing streets, and stay with your group.
Halloween is on Tuesday, October 31st and our campuses have decided to let the students have some fun and dress up in costume. With fun, comes responsibility. The students will still be involved in their learning activities in class, so please keep the following in mind when choosing a costume to wear. - All costumes must be in dress code (See the student handbook for our policies) - Costumes may not include weapons of any kind - Costumes should allow the student to sit easily in their desk - We must be able to see the student's face - no masks! - You might consider sending a change of clothes just in case the costume becomes uncomfortable. - Bring appropriate shoes for recess, PE and/or athletics
