This morning Gunter Middle School and Gunter High School students were placed in a "Hold" which is the first step in our emergency plan. This is a precautionary measure taken when there is a minor issue that needs attention. We had a minor discipline issue taking place between the two campuses in a high traffic area. Campus administrators thought it best to keep all students in place until they could attend to the situation. This was a cautionary step to make sure all students were safe. Once the situation was resolved, students were released to their next class. We notified parents through email and voice call. If you are a parent of a student at GISD, and did not receive the call, please update your information in Parent Portal.
Parents, We will always error on the side of safety to the fullest as we work through issues in real time. Any time you try to communicate to a campus of 850 staff and students, during a passing period with large numbers transitioning between buildings, that space is needed to resolve an issue, there is going to be anxiety and concern due to the unknown. Again, we will not take anything for granted or take chances until we have full control or understanding of what measures we need to take to ensure safety. Thank you for all you do to support our schools. We are blessed in Gunter Texas. Please enjoy your weekend.
Parents: We are hearing that many of you are experiencing issues with the registration process. Some are able to register and some are not. We are trying to figure out where the glitch is. Stay tuned for more information. Thank you!
Two things: - Last STAAR exams for 6,7,8 today: make sure they bring their Chromebook chargers - Water, Water, Water…the financial support from our community towards Special Olympics has been amazing.

Gunter Tiger Families, Let’s help the Jacksboro Tigers get back on their feet. We want to replace the items that were lost in the tornado on Monday. Crayons, markers, large dry erase boards, dry erase markers, etc. The elementary classrooms were the only ones with interior damage. Think small kids. PE and outdoor stuff. Gift cards would be great. We can give them directly to teachers for classroom supplies. You may drop your items at the middle school and I will deliver them to Jacksboro. Thank you so much! Please text me with any questions. 214-796-6367 Kayla Verden
