• Alert:

    Quick reminder: Students who attend in-person learning will receive a breakfast and lunch meal before they leave school on Friday afternoon. The meals are for Monday’s virtual learning day so there is less food deficiency throughout the county.

    In addition, TCSS buses will be rolling into communities Monday to distribute meals for kids 18 and younger. There will be enough meals for five days. Those receiving meals do not have to be TCSS students. Meals are available to each young person in the community. The bus route delivery sites are available here.

09/25/20: TCSS Information Technology Department to Issue New Power Cords

Recently, the Troup County School System (TCSS) Information Technology department received reports that certain Dell power cords issued after July 2020 have been separating from the plug and emitting a spark near the outlet plug and the device charger. Out of an abundance of caution and safety for their students and employees, the school system will be replacing defective power cords beginning Saturday (tomorrow) at 9:00 a.m.

TCSS will begin replacing a limited number of power cords on Saturday, September 26, 2020 from 9 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (noon). To obtain a new power cord, parents and students can come to 100 North Davis Rd., Building A (up the hill by the TCSS Bus Shop) and return the old power cord. They will then be issued a new power cord. TCSS is working with their supplier for the remaining shipment to be sent early next week.

Any student having power cord and/or charger issues will be given additional time to complete work from the virtual learning day.

09/18/20: TCSS Board Approves Two Virtual Days for All Students virtual learning

Two upcoming Mondays have now been deemed virtual learning days according to a vote last night during the Troup County School System (TCSS) Board of Education September meeting. 

The two days are:

  • Monday, September 28, 2020
  • Monday, November 2, 2020


Members of the Board voted to approve two virtual days for all students after the recommendation from Dr. Brian Shumate, TCSS Superintendent, came Monday night. He said, “We have heard from educators who simultaneously teach students in-person and virtually. These two days will allow them an opportunity to catch up on student assignments and lesson planning while also learning more about Canvas to better help students and parents.”

For students who need additional resources, such as wifi, for these virtual days, please review the link below:

09/17/20: TCSS Offers Free Meals for Kids - Drop Off Locations bus routes

Thanks to an extension from the Seamless Summer Option program, all Troup County youth ages 18 and under can now receive free breakfast and lunch meals. This means that any parent who is currently paying for their child’s lunch can now save those lunch funds or apply them to a household need. The extension started today in Troup County and will continue until December 31, 2020 unless additional funds are made available to extend the program further.

Diane Pain, Director of School Nutrition for Troup County School System (TCSS), said, “Parents will receive five days of breakfast and lunch meals at no cost. Students who go through the lunch line at school will not have to pay because all youth are now covered under this program extension.”

Google Meet in Canvas

Attention parents and students: we have had lots of questions about how to get to Google Meet for their classes in Canvas, so here is a video tutorial to help!

2020-2021 Attendance & Registration Info.

Tardies: A staff member will scan the kids who are tardy (8:15 or later) to make sure they do not have a temperature of 100.4 or more. Then, students will enter through the glass doors. Students will need to use Checkmate to check-in. Checkmate will print a pass to class.

Check-Out: GNMS will not be allowing visitors to assist in keeping our Mustangs healthy. However, people will need to check-out students. People on the student's pickup list will need to show their photo ID to the receptionist so that she may verify the identity of the person. Checkmate will be used to check the students out. Students will be called to the front and they will exit out of the glass doors. Students may not be checked out after 3:00 due to dismissal safety. If a child needs to be checked out after 3:00, they must be picked up from the car rider line.

Online Registration: For those who need to register tomorrow, you will need to call the front desk (706)883-1535, and tell the receptionist your child's name, grade level, and make and color of your car. A counselor will take a Chromebook to the appropriate car to assist in online registration.

Covid-19 Information

In the event a student has been in direct contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID or tested positive themselves, please notify us (706)883-1535 immediately.

If a student would like a cloth mask, they should let their first period teacher know.
