    GPS has implemented a new notification system called SwiftK12. Notifications may be sent to a cell phone via text message in addition to voice calls. Parents and Guardians: You have the ability to reduce the number of calls you get. Access the SwiftReach/SwiftK12 Alerting in your PowerSchool Parent Portal. Detailed instructions on how to edit your notification preferences can be found by clicking this link to the SwiftK12 Powerschool Instructions. If you do not have a PowerSchool Parent account, contact your child's school to request changes.
