Emergency-Red-School Closure
School Closure

With student and staff safety as our top concern, GISD has decided to close all schools and offices on Friday, February 3, 2023, due to continued unsafe road conditions. See the Weather Procedures page for more details.

We believe that all children are entitled to educational opportunities consistent with their ability to learn. We offer numerous programs for children with disabilities from birth through age twenty-one.
