Our Doors Are Locked for Security
Hello Gulf Coast High (GCH) School families,
Through ongoing discussions and security process reviews with our law enforcement partners and our district leadership team, we have concluded that an additional security enhancement should be put in place to further ensure the safety of our students, staff, and guests at all of our schools.
Effective Monday, May 21st, the front office door at Gulf Coast High (GCH) School will be locked. Guests arriving on campus will need to ring the doorbell next to the door to request entry. When the front office staff answers, you will be asked your name and your reason for visiting, which may include your child’s name. Please present your photo ID to the camera directly above the doorbell. Once approved and access is granted, please do not allow other individuals to enter behind you.
As you enter the lobby, you will again present a photo I.D. and receive a visitor’s pass using the existing visitor screening system.
Please click here to see our entry tutorial video:
Guests should plan to arrive at our school a few minutes earlier to expedite their visit.
Prioritizing student and staff safety is a commitment we all share. If you have any questions, please contact me directly.
Welcome to the Home of the Sharks!
