Monday Memo – Good evening Garner Nation; this is Principal Carter Hillman with a Monday Memo:


  • All information provided in this Memo is posted on the GMHS website under the “Principal’s Message.”
  • This week’s in-person learning is for Cohort 1 (A).  Next week, March 8th through March 11th is for Cohort 2 (B).  Please review the school calendar on the GMHS website for each cohort’s schedule through the end of the school year.
  • Parents: If you are dropping students off for school via the carpool lane.  Students cannot leave your car until they have passed their daily health screening.  This is a WCPSS expectation.  
  • Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 3rd is a county-based Asynchronous Day for students.  There will be no live instruction on this day, but teachers will post assignments to be completed.  Students will be marked present for classes by completing these assignments.
  • As we return to campus, students will need to bring their own devices to use for class each day.  The device should be a laptop or Chromebook.  A tablet with a keyboard will work if no other device is available.  Students who received WCPSS devices must bring those with them every day.  Make sure your devices are fully charged before school begins.  All students need to bring their own headphones or earbuds with them daily.  Inexpensive headphones and earbuds can be purchased at most stores. Including “dollar” stores.  If you have questions or concerns about devices, please contact Ms. Ireland.
  • GMHS Student Services would like to remind students and parents that Course Registration for the 2021-22 school year will occur for all grade levels from Thursday, March 4th through Tuesday, March 9th.  If you have questions, please contact GMHS student services.
  • Attention Senior Parents: Cap and Gown photos will be this Thursday, March 4th.  Please note that the location has changed and will be in the small gym.  Students will enter and get health screened at the student parking lot entrance.  Please be aware that Cap and Gown photos are not mandatory, but those who decided to participate must pay a $10.00 session fee, and you must schedule a session time.  Find the link via the GMHS website calendar or student email.  Please note that Cap and Gowns will be provided and sanitized with each use.  If you have any questions, contact Mrs. Easton.
  • Wednesday, March 10th will be Underclassmen Picture make-up day in the small gym.  All students, in every cohort (in-person or virtual), who are interested in make-up day, must make an appointment using the link on the GMHS website calendar.  Students arriving to the campus for their appointment much enter through the student parking lot entrance.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Easton.
