It is important to note that, in order to receive support, students and/or parents must submit a Help Ticket prior to receiving service by signing into Classlink and clicking on the Help Desk button on a GCISD device.

Student Meal Service

GCISD continues to serve meals to students, via take-out only, Monday through Friday at 10 regional campuses/locations. All meals are served from 11 a.m. until 12 p.m. All students will be served, and no student ID is required to participate. For a complete list of locations, visit our student meals page.

NOTE: Beginning on Monday, March 30, meals at Grapevine Middle will be available at the rear of the building. Cars will still be asked to proceed to the front of GMS before being directed to the rear. View the map for details.

To comply with the recommended CDC guidelines, all meals will be prepared for individual pick-up, no group meals or congregating will be allowed. All students and families must practice social distancing while waiting in line for a meal and receiving the meal from the person on the bus.

If you have questions about this service, please email child.nutrition@gcisd.net.

Learning@Home: Week 2 Information

The Week 2 resources for Learning@Home are now live and ready for students, parents, and teachers to use. As last week’s focus was connectivity and enrichment, this week we are focusing on routines, review, and relationships. The goal will be to help students begin creating learning routines at home using content and tools that are familiar.

Upon accessing the Learning@Home site, you will find the link to the Week 2 content review section. Select your grade band (PK-5, 6-8, or 9-12) and then click on the corresponding grade level (elementary) or courses (secondary). Elementary review activities are designed to include parent involvement. Teachers will be in touch with students regularly this week to interact and expand upon the course information found on the Learning@Home site. Please email learning@gcisd.net if you have any questions or need support.
