COVID - 19
If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that things in life can be unpredictable. Last spring, we experienced an unprecedented state-wide school closure, causing GMS to swich to distance learning. When distance learning began, it grew from everyone’s best thinking in the moment. This meant that the goal was survival and maintenance of the students’ skills.
Looking ahead to the possibility of another school closure, it’s time to build a new plan that will focus on the growth and development of the students’ skills and abilities, honoring their whole selves. Although we plan to convert to distance learning only if absolutely necessary, it is our responsibility to prepare for this possibility.
Please note that this is a fluid situation. Policies may change as the start of the school year approaches and updated guidelines are issued by the CDC and the state.
