Welcome to the 2014/2015 school year. If you are new to the area, the office is now open for a registration packet. Please complete the packet and return with all of the required forms to Mrs. Esquivel. Please call for an appointment at 775-588-2446. She will also schedule an appointment with the counselor for you as well to discuss a class schedule.


If you plan on participating in a fall sport, please click on the athletics link above and towards the bottom of that page you will find a link for the GWHS Sports Packet. This packet must be completed and turned in before you can practice. Note the athletic fee has increased to $35 plus $10 for your Student Body Card for a total of $45.
