Accessing the Internet

Gilroy High School has several computer labs on campus including a cluster of computers in the library.

Students who are going to use the Internet must fill out an “Internet Use Contract” and have it signed by their parents. The Internet use contracts are kept on file by the librarian. When the librarian receives a student’s contract, a sticker will be placed on the student's student body card, as proof the document is on file. Internet contracts are kept on file from year to year, until your graduation. You DO NOT need to complete a new contract every school year.

A student without an Internet sticker may not use the Internet under any circumstances!

  1. A student without that sticker may not use the Internet under any circumstances.
  2. Internet research is for school projects only.
  3. Students may not download files without permission.
