  • What are the current Internet Safety issues that parents should be aware of?
OGLE: The "OGLE" app allows users to post comments, pictures and videos completely anonymously.  The app is actually organized into pages by school site when students make anonymous posts about classmates, teachers, and other school staff. Although GGHS HAS NOT BEEN INVOLVED IN ANY INCIDENTS, other schools in Orange County are reporting posts that depict bullying and that contain pornographic images of children. There are only negative consequences to its use for students, families, and the school. GGHS encourages parents to have a conversation with your student about the appropriate use of technology and the negative consequences (both short and long term) for our students. 

A news report on the app can be found at:
  • During Modernization is there additional parking--especially on days where the Don Wash Auditorium is being used and there are buses on Stanford Ave. and 7th St.?
