Message from Superintendent, Dr. Ray DeSpain: Earlier today, I received information that several School Districts in the state had received non-credible school threats (via e-mail) claiming to be from a Russian terrorist organization. Giddings ISD was not one of the schools receiving a threat. After immediate investigations by several local and state law enforcement entities, including the Texas Rangers, the threats were deemed to be a “hoax.” The origin of the e-mails is still under investigation by authorities. There was never any indication at any time that Giddings ISD students or staff were ever in any danger, nor did we feel it necessary to consider enacting lockdown or cancellation procedures. Please rest assured that student and staff safety will remain our top priority, and that any and all measures will always be enacted if needed to protect the District and those we serve.

Due to the shortage of bus drivers, Bus 3 & 14 are combined so your kids might be getting home a little later this afternoon. Sorry for any inconveniences.

GISD is short on Bus Drivers this afternoon. We are combining bus route #3 and #14. If your child rides either of these buses, they may arrive a little late this evening. Thank you for understanding.

From GMS Band Director Mr. Anthony Tiger: On Friday 3/25, the 6th grade band competed in the Blinn College Music Meet. Our first year band students earned a first division rating from all three judges. In addition to the competition, the band toured the Blue Bell Creamery, had pizza at Mr. Gatti's, and went to Horseshoe Junction. Our students not only performed well, but they were on their best behavior. At every stop, the directors were stopped and told how well our children were acting. Thank you for all your support. Tiger *** #BuffPride
