News and Announcements

WELCOME and WELCOME BACK to Giddings Middle School

The 2017-2018 School Year is finally here! We hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing summer. The members of TEAM GMS are eager to meet our new students and to reconnect with our returning students.

The first day of school is Monday, August 28, 2017. School begins promptly at 7:50 a.m. Parents should utilize the "Drop-Off" lane in front of GMS when bringing students to school. If parents need to speak to someone in the office or register students, please park in the parking lot and do NOT park in the lane in front of the school.

We ask that parents of students who ride the bus be patient the first couple of days of school. There may be slight delays with student pick up and delivery as the transportation department works to finalize the number of stops per route. If you have a questions regarding a bus route, please contact the GISD Transportation Department at 979-542-9237.

We want to thank parents and guardians in advance for your support of Giddings Middle School Students and Staff. Working together, we will continue to provide a positive, secure learning environment built on mutual respect and acceptance. Please contact the office at 979-542-2057, if you have any questions.

Attention: Parents of Incoming 7th Grade Students

The Texas Department of Health requires all entering 7th grade students to have Tdap and meningococcal vaccines prior to the first day of school. If you received a letter from the nurse your child is missing these immunizations. Please bring or fax a copy of your child's shot record to Giddings Middle School at 979-542-3941. State law does not allow students to start school without these immunizations.
