Everything Our Parents Needs to Know
On this page, parents can find a list of our frequently asked questions.
Also found on the right side of the page (or at the bottom if you are on your phone) is a list of convenient quick links.
Searching for our new school information system? It is called FACTS.
Login to the FACTS Family Portal using your username and password. If you need the District Code, it is gross-ne.
Contact the school if you have trouble logging in.
The weekly parent newletter is called, “Parent Paws.”
In the newsletter, you will be able to access information from the principal, general announcements, and information from campus ministry and the guidance office.
If you are a current parent, you can find all faculty email addresses after logging in to your Facts Family Portal account.
Use the general Contact Us form to email a faculty or staff person if you don’t have access to Facts.
We have removed email addresses from the public website due to spam and security issues.
Do you want to know when the next game is or what activities are happening? Check out our school calendar page for a brief overview.
You can also go to the River Cities Conference Calendar page for Gross Catholic to sign up for notifications, view a monthly or weekly calendar, and download specific sports and activities calendars.
Our on-site spirit store is open during lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We even have a pop-up store at home football games. You can order items from on-site Spirit Store online, but those items will need to be picked up at school.
In addition, we now have a convenient online spirit store called, “Sideline.” On the site, you can purchase all sorts of GC spirit wear and can even customize it. Items purchased from Sideline are shipped directly to you.
Need to contact a faculty or staff member via email? Fill out the Contact Us form and we will make sure that they get it.
Do you need to call a faculty or staff member? Go to the directory page and call their phone extension listed on their page.
By the way, some people ask why we don’t have the email addresses of teachers posted on our website. The reason is that we were getting spammed and phished. Our security consultant suggested that we take down all email address from our public website. And so we did. However, the good news is that parents can find the address of their child’s teachers on the FACTS Family Portal.

Any student engaged in athletics, cheer, and dance must have a current physical exam taken after May 1st of each school year. Bring the physical form to the doctor’s appointment. Ask the doctor fill to out the form.
To assist with prevention, parents and student-athletes, must read and sign the Concussion Form.
In similar fashion, potential dangers associated with sports participation exist. Consequently, injuries are a possibility even with the best coaching, the best protective equipment, and strict observance of rules. In filling out the consent form, parents acknowledge the risk and give consent for treatment.
Permit to Participate Card
In order to receive a Permit to Participate Card, the following three documents must be on file at school.
After all paperwork is turned in for the year, each student must request a Permit to Participate card from the main office. This card is then given to the coach confirming that all paperwork is completed and current. Students are not allowed to tryout for any sport or physical activity without a card. The documents are to be turned in once per year. Permit to Participate cards are be requested for each individual sports season.
We do not have a standard school supply list like many grade schools and middle schools do. To prepare for school, students can get the basics such as laptop, pens, paper, notebooks, and loose leaf binders. When school starts, each teacher will let the student know what they need to bring to each class during the first few days of class.
