Teacher Appreciation Week - May 4 - May 8

We will be placing our GHES mailbox (white wooden box) outside of the main doors this week. If you or your child would like to drop off a note, card and/or gift for your teacher, please label and place in the GHES mailbox. Mrs. Jones will collect items each day and deliver to teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.

In addition, our admin and PTA are working together to organize some special surprises for our AMAZING teachers!

Chromebook Support

Chesterfield County Public Schools has developed a plan to provide support for school division-issued Chromebooks during this extended school closure:

  • Every Tuesday at Thomas Dale and Matoaca High Schools from 9 a.m. until noon

  • Every Thursday at CTC@Hull and Robious Middle from 1 - 4 p.m.

  • A parent and/or student will need to provide their student ID number in order to adjust the school division’s inventory records. Support is limited to students in grades 5-12, who already are participating in the Chromebook take-home program. Appropriate social distancing protocol will be followed to protect students and staff. For clarification purposes: While the CCPS Internet network is available to families while in the parking lot, the school division is not giving out free hotspot devices at these repair stations.

CCPS serves meals during COVID-19
