Sign Up for Alerts from GJSD!

Parents can receive automated calls, texts, and emails that deliver important information throughout the year from the District.  We are encouraging all parents to sign up for this option.

When you first enroll your student, the Notice of Automated Message Delivery form is filled out as part of the registration packet.  However, if your phone number or Email has changed since you enrolled your student; or if you never submitted this form, you can update your information in Powerschool through the Parent Portal.

The following are types of messages you don’t want to miss out on:

  • Community Outreach Messages
  • Emergency Messages (including weather related delays and cancellations)
  • Survey Messages
  • Attendance Messages

Make certain you have a parent account set up through power school.  If you do not have a parent account, please visit our website at and submit the Power School Parent Portal Request form that is under the PowerSchool/ parent tab.  Our Student Information Systems Coordinator will then respond via Email with the necessary documentation needed for you to create your parent account.
