If your family lost housing and is now sheltered at an alternate location, or you are providing shelter for a displaced family from another school district, please know these students have rights provided by the McKinney-Vento Act which allows for several school options.
If you are a current GPISD family who has been displaced, or you are providing shelter for a family with school-aged children, we ask you to report to your child's campus to update your address, register new students, and allow us to assist you with the paperwork and provide helpful information.
We look forward to seeing all of our students and families back soon, and as always, please let us know how we can further assist you.
Si usted y su familia perdieron su vivienda y ahora están refugiados en un lugar alternativo, o usted está proporcionando albergue para una familia desplazada que reside en otro distrito escolar, por favor sepa que estos estudiantes tienen derechos establecidos en la ley McKinney-Vento la cual les concede varias opciones escolares.
Si usted y su familia viven dentro de los límites de GPISD y han sido desplazados, o está proporcionando albergue para una familia con hijos de edad escolar, le pedimos que vayan a la escuela que asiste su hijo/a para actualizar su dirección, registrar estudiantes nuevos y para ayudarle a llenar los formularios necesarios y darle información provechosa.
Esperamos ver pronto a todos nuestros estudiantes y sus familias y como siempre, por favor déjenos saber en qué más podemos ayudarle.
