Dear G*inesville High School Families,

The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. Our administration team learned of a possible threat to our school. School security staff and the Prince William County Police investigated and have determined the threat to be unfounded. We have no reason to believe our school is in any danger.

We take all threats seriously and are committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment. With everyone’s help, we can continue to keep our school a safe and effective place to learn. I appreciate your patience, cooperation, and support.


Those in the class of 2023 should submit all offered scholarships they receive via the 2023 Scholarship Survey (linked below).

Only students who submit their accepted scholarships via the survey will be recognized at this event; the deadline to be recognized at the scholarship awards has been extended to 5/5. Even if you student does not want to be recognized, please have them submit all offered scholarships. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Harris, College & Career Counselor at [email protected].
