Parents of Class of 2023

Gunn Back-to-School Packet is going ONLINE

The Gunn Back-to-School Packet will be online this year, giving you the option to fill out all forms online and pay for items/make donations by credit card. Printed packets will not be mailed this year. 

You will receive an email in advance of the August 5th Back-to-School Packet opening date, giving instructions on how to find it. You can also find the link on both the Gunn and Gunn PTSA websites August 5th. The Online

Back-to-School Packet will have more information about starting the school year than the previous printed packets. Also, filling out the forms online should save volunteer parents hundreds of hours sorting paperwork, depositing checks, and manually adding names to lists. 

Prefer a printed Back-to-School Packet or to pay by check or cash? You will be able to download a pdf of the Back-to-School Packet, print the pages you need and return them to Gunn. Alternatively a few packets will be made available for pick-up at the Gunn front office. 

Going online will save Gunn and the PTSA over $6,000 in mailing costs, 75,000 sheets of paper, and over 500 person hours!
