  • Hello! Exciting news--GSD has purchased for all families a FREE account at SignIt!, an online ASL learning website! Everyone in the family can take free classes (live or recorded), meet with a tutor one-on-one, and many more great options! It is very easy to get an account. You can contact Marie Dickinson by text/phone (706.331.6314), or email (mdickinson@doe.12.ga.us). I strongly encourage all GSD families to get an account and see the great lessons with SignIt!

  • Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet (1787-1851) holds an important role in the history of education for Deaf students in America. Gallaudet Day is celebrated each year on his birthday, 10 December. High School students in Julie Burton’s ASL I and ASL II classes, in addition to a few other students, put on a wonderful play this year, telling the story of Gallaudet’s work to establish education for Deaf students. In the play, a statue of Gallaudet (played by Santos Castanon-Gonzalez) “comes alive” to a group of current Gallaudet University students and they discuss how his meeting of a Deaf child, Alice Cogswell, led Gallaudet to travel to Europe, learn about education for Deaf students in France, and return to America with a Deaf teacher, Laurent Clerc, to establish the first permanent school for the Deaf in Harford, Connecticut (the American School for the Deaf). Kudos to all the talented students who worked hard in practices to put on this great show and Julie Burton for her many hours working to make this event happen!

    Captions will be added soon.

  • GSD will give the Georgia Health Survey to students in grades 3-12 in January. A form will be sent home with your child this week with more information. The survey for parents is open from now until March 1st. It is not very long, so we very much appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete the survey here: https://gshs.gadoe.org/parents 

    If you DO NOT WANT your child to take the survey, please fill out the form and send it back to the school by Monday, January 8th. If it is fine for your student to take the survey, you don’t have to do anything.

    GSD entregará la Encuesta de salud de Georgia a los estudiantes de los grados 3 al 12 en enero. Se enviará un formulario a casa con su hijo esta semana con más información. La encuesta para padres está abierta desde ahora hasta el 1 de marzo. No es muy largo, por lo que le agradecemos mucho que se tome unos minutos para completar la encuesta aquí: https://gshs.gadoe.org/parents   

    Si NO QUIERE que su hijo responda la encuesta, complete el formulario y envíelo de regreso a la escuela antes del lunes 8 de enero. Si está bien que su estudiante responda la encuesta, no tiene que hacer nada.

  • Hello Families! 

    In accordance with Governor Kemp’s School Safety Act that became law on June 1, 2023, we will be conducting an intruder alert drill this month.  In preparation for this drill, we will be talking with students about what to do should we ever need to protect ourselves from an intruder on our campus. 

    Keeping your child safe at school is of the utmost importance to us at the Georgia School for the Deaf. In our efforts to do this, we conduct a variety of monthly drills, train our staff, regularly review our safety practices, and collaborate with our local first responders and other community partners to ensure that our facilities and protocols meet high safety standards.  One significant change we made over the summer was the addition of Code Red Guard Access Control Devices on all of our campuses (ask your student about the Red Box).  These devices, installed on classroom doors as well as other strategic locations, allow us to effectively lockdown from an intruder in just seconds. 

    You can learn more about Code Red Guard devices on their website: www.coderedguard.com.

    If you have any questions about the safety and security of our campus, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

  • Hola, familias:

    De acuerdo con la Ley de Seguridad Escolar del Gobernador Kemp que se convirtió en ley el 1 de junio de 2023, llevaremos a cabo un simulacro de alerta de intrusos este mes. En preparación para este simulacro, hablaremos con los estudiantes sobre qué hacer si alguna vez necesitamos protegernos de un intruso en nuestro campus.

    Mantener a su hijo seguro en la escuela es de suma importancia para nosotros en la Escuela para Sordos de Georgia.

    En nuestro esfuerzo por hacer esto, realizamos una variedad de simulacros mensuales, capacitamos a nuestro personal, revisamos regularmente nuestras prácticas de seguridad y colaboramos con nuestros socorristas locales y otros socios de la comunidad para garantizar que nuestras instalaciones y protocolos cumplan con altos estándares de seguridad. Un cambio significativo que hicimos durante el verano fue la adición de dispositivos de control de acceso Code Red Guard en todos nuestros campus (pregunte a su estudiante sobre la caja roja).

    Estos dispositivos, instalados en las puertas de las aulas, así como en otras ubicaciones estratégicas, nos permiten bloquear eficazmente a un intruso en cuestión de segundos.

    Puede obtener más información sobre los dispositivos Code Red Guard en su sitio web: www.coderedguard.com.

    Si tiene alguna pregunta sobre la seguridad de nuestro campus, no dude en comunicarse con nosotros.
