Message from the Principal
Welcome back to George Washington High School for the 2016-2017 School year!!!!
We are asking students to log into their schoolnet to find your roster. It will show you the period of the day and the teacher's name. There will be room lists placed in entry locations around the school so students can know what classrooms to go to or click here to view the teacher directory. Please take the time to do this so that instruction time can be maximized.
There have been some changes that we would like to bring to your attention. First, the dress code will be enforced this school year. Please click on the link regarding dress code to be sure that your student is prepared for the school year.
Second, we have changed the school entry location to the Recreation Room (on the side of the school closest to the athletic fields) in the hopes of increasing the number of students who eat breakfast. As such, it does take an extra minute to get to the recreation room to scan in. Be prepared.
We have been working with SEPTA and there are some changes to pick up locations at the end of the school day in an attempt to improve the safety of our students. Please click on the link that shows the pick up locations for the bus routes.
Classes begin promptly at 7:35am.
We are looking forward to a productive and positive school year!
