  1. We have tried to provide multiple forums for you to obtain information regarding what’s happening at MIS.

–  The team pages on our website (http://mis.gcsc.k12.in.us) will likely be of great interest to you this year.  Teachers will be posting to their respective pages weekly.  These updates occur on Friday afternoon or Monday morning depending on the grade level.

  1.  School Dismissal Manager(https://www.schooldismissalmanager.com/SchoolAdmin/default.asp?login=session) –  MIS will again be using a web based service called School Dismissal Manager. The purpose is to enable you to easily and securely inform the office regarding your wishes for your child at dismissal time. The system will provide a more organized and efficient tracking system for end of day dismissals. It is intended to replace the notes and phone calls to the office that let us know of changes to your plans for your child(ren)’s dismissal. School Dismissal Manager is the place for you to inform MIS of the means of transportation intended for your son or daughter each day.

You will receive a welcome email providing you with your username and password to access this secure system.  We are hopeful that you find this to be a more convenient process.  ANY transportation changes from normal procedure must be done prior to 1:00pm through the system.  We understand that things happen after this time.  Therefore, if you need to make a change after 1:00pm, you will need to contact the office as you have in the past.
