We are excited to welcome back our returning students and to officially welcome the GCHS Class of 2025! We also are looking forward to welcoming back students who participated in the Virtual Learning Academy program last year and are returning to the building.
On Tuesday, August 17, we will host our Freshman Orientation from 12:30p-4p and Freshman Schedule Pickup from 4-5:30p. Students who ride a bus to school will receive a card in the mail about when the bus will pick them up for Freshman Orientation soon. If you do not receive information by Thursday, August 12, please contact our office at 614-801-3300. Transportation is only provided to school for students who normally ride the bus; students who normally walk to school will need to walk or be dropped off. All students will need to be picked up or walk home following the Orientation program. This is a great opportunity for students to get to know each other, learn about GCHS, and find their classes and lockers. Our Upperclassmen are invited to Schedule Pickup on Wednesday, August 18 from 3-6pm.
Please consider joining our PTSA, a parent-led organization that helps fund scholarships for graduating seniors and helps fund programs throughout the building. We are in need of officers and members for the 2021-22 school year, so please join!

It has been a busy summer around the building as our custodial crew cleaned and prepared the building for opening. We appreciate their efforts to get our building ready for a successful start of the school year.
Our sports teams begin competitions soon. For a full sports schedule, please visit www.gchsgreyhounds.com. Our Football team hosts Dublin Scioto to start the season on Friday, August 20 at 7pm in the Stadium. We are excited to dedicate and showcase the new Leasure Field and our new scoreboard.
As included in the district’s Back-to-School Newsletter, we will continue to utilize layered protocols to protect students from COVID-19. We are a ‘mask-friendly’ district and students who wish to wear a mask may do so. We recommend anyone eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination to get it to help protect themselves from the virus.
I hope all of our students have had a safe, restful summer and look forward to seeing all of them when we start school on August 25.
