GCISD Welcomes Families Affected by Hurricane Harvey
As the communities affected by Harvey begin to rebuild, thousands of families are coming to North Texas for refuge from the storms. GCISD understands that this is a fluid situation and may change from day-to-day; however, we welcome with open arms any family and their students that wish to attend school during this time of need. If your family has been affected by Hurricane Harvey and you are staying with family in our community, please visit the campus or campuses in their attendance zone and work with the office staff to register and begin school. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact GCISD at (817) 251-5200.
An Open Letter to the Community Regarding Hurricane Harvey
Dear GCISD Community,
Like many of you, I have spent the last several days thinking of and praying for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The images that I have seen are devastating and I can hardly imagine what those victims must be going through. While the total impact has yet to be determined, it stands to be sure that many have lost their homes and their belongings. There is nothing that we can do to repair the pain that comes with losing one's home; however, I believe that we can come together as communities to offer support, supplies and prayers for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Texas Monthly published an article that details ways to help Hurricane Harvey victims. Additionally, the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster has a list of organizations that welcome volunteers and/or donations. Over the next several days, I imagine there will be some local efforts within GCISD to provide support, supplies and donations to Harvey victims. As this information becomes available, we will share it on the district website and on social media with the hashtag #GCISDHelps.
Please continue to keep those affected by Hurricane Harvey in your thoughts and prayers and thank you in advance for your support for these families.
Dr. Robin Ryan
