Griffin High School will be administering the GA Student Health Survey beginning December 1, 2022 - March 17, 2023. The Georgia Student Health Survey is an anonymous state survey instrument that identifies safety and school climate issues that affect student achievement. In order to provide a safe and supportive learning environment for your child, the Georgia Department of Education collects survey information from students throughout the school year. The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and covers various topics such as school climate and safety, drug and alcohol use, and mental health. All student survey data is anonymous and self-reported.
The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) gives you the right to opt out of participating in the survey. If you do not want your child to participate in the Georgia Student Health Survey, please provide the information requested below by November 30, 2022.
Congratulations to Ayla Spencer for being awarded the National African American Recognition Award from the CollegeBoard. Students earn this recognition because of their academic achievements in school and outstanding performance on PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT10 and/or AP Exams.
Voter Registration in the Media Center
Happy to see our students registering to vote in September.
GHS, please be advised that students can ONLY carry clear or mesh bookbags on campus and in school. The entire bookbag must be clear or mesh-- not partially clear or mesh. Clutch purses (that are not clear) are allowed. If you have equipment for extracurricular activities that are carried in a bag, please see your activity advisor for further direction. Thank you for helping to ensure safety at GHS. Examples of appropriate bags are below.
Please be advised that for the 2022-2023 school year, all GSCS middle and high schools will implement a clear bookbag policy. All middle school student bookbags must be transparent. The entire bookbag should be clear plastic or see-through mesh that allows for the contents inside the bookbag to be known. Small purses (that are not clear) are allowed but should be smaller than 1 ft. by 1 ft. Lunch boxes that are not clear are allowed but should only be used to transport lunch. If students have equipment for extracurricular activities that must be carried in a bag, they should see their activity advisor for further direction. Thank you for helping to ensure safety at our schools.
This clear bookbag policy is a proactive measure to serve as a deterrent to discourage students from bringing inappropriate items into our school. This is not in response to a particular incident but is an effort to keep our school environment safe.
