News and Announcements

Social Media Day

The Giddings ISD is hosting Social Media Day on Thursday, February 23rd.

The purpose of the event is to educate students, staff, parents, and the community on internet safety and security. Our guest speaker, Mark Seguin, will present student assemblies on each campus throughout the day and will speak at a meeting for parents and community members at 6:30 PM at the Giddings High School Cafeteria. The community event is free and childcare will be provided for your school aged children. Please RSVP to Giddings High School, at (979) 542-3351, if you will need childcare.

The student assemblies will focus on age appropriate information about cyberbullying, internet safety, and potential consequences for inappropriate use of the internet. The community meeting will focus on steps adults should take to remain safe on the internet as well as how they can help keep their children safe.

Weather conditions occur during the winter months that could result in a school closure or delayed start. If inclement weather occurs, the District will make the official decision concerning closing or delaying the start of school based on road conditions. School will either be delayed or canceled if students and staff cannot safely travel on the roadways.

When it becomes necessary to open late, to release students early, or to cancel school, district officials will attempt to notify parents and staff by posting a message on the district website, the GISD Facebook page, and the following radio and television stations:
