Attention winter and spring athletes: This is a reminder that this current semester determines eligibility for your sports. You must pass the required number of classes to participate. Spring athletes must also have a 2.0 GPA. All eligibility rules are posted on the GHS website under Athletics and in Canvas. If you have questions please see your coach, counselor or Athletic Director Ms. Hunter.

Calendar update: The Gloucester County School Board recently approved an updated school calendar. The last day of the first semester is now Wednesday, January 25. This will be a full day of school, as the School Board has also eliminated final exams. Please visit the GCPS website to view the new calendar.
