Welcome to Gatesville Junior High! I am looking forward to working with each of you as the year progresses. Our goal is to ensure that each of our students receives the best education possible. It is our hope that your child will look forward to school each day, as well as the opportunities for academic and social growth. We have a fantastic group of students at Gatesville, along with a supportive community that wants the very best for our students. We encourage all parents/guardians to take an active part in the education of the students at Gatesville Junior High. We feel that when there is a connection between home and school, the students will have a much greater chance of reaching their potential. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year at Gatesville Junior High!

News & Announcements

FROM DR. BARRETT POLLARD

"Unfortunately, the delta variant of COVID-19 is impacting our students and staff. Covid testing at Coryell Health is at record numbers, while they are also seeing record numbers of covid-related patients. Our local medical officials have asked for the school and community's help in combating the virus. As opposed to a mask mandate defying the current directives of the governor, the board approved the district "strongly recommending" masks for our students, staff, and any visitors at all campuses for the month of September. We will then re-evaluate the situation at the end of the month. Students and adults are free to make their own decision on whether or not they wear a mask. WIth the current uptick in cases, however, many students and staff have already started wearing masks. Any help in slowing the spread is greatly appreciated."

As parents and community members you are critical partners in the education of our students. It may be a cliché, but it truly does take a village to educate a child. We appreciate and value the trust that parents have placed in our staff and we accept the responsibility of ensuring that all students graduate college and world ready. We are committed to developing in each student the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to ensure many paths to a successful future. Our number one priority will always be the success of every student.
