Please see a message from Superintendent, Dr. Marie Wiles:

Dear GCSD Families,

I’m writing to provide you a few updates and reminders. Please see below:

In-person Instruction on Tuesday, Jan. 19

Last week, due to the number of staff who were absent because of quarantines, grades 5-12 had a change in schedules and were remote-only for part or all of the week. Unless under quarantine, all students will resume their in-person and hybrid classes starting tomorrow, Jan. 19. There are a few groups of students who will continue on remote instruction; they are listed below. Please keep in mind that the situation can change quickly and if there’s a need to transition from regular in-person instruction, we will let you know as soon as possible.

The following students will remain remote-only through Thursday, Jan. 21, and return on Friday, Jan 22:

  • PBES Grade 5 at FMS

The following students will remain remote-only through Friday, Jan. 22, and will return on Monday, Jan. 25:

  • The Comprehensive Skills Program (CSP) at GHS
