Virtual Learners- Mandatory Meeting, Mon/Tue!

Parents and students that will use virtual learning MUST attend a mandatory meeting, Monday, Aug. 17 or Tuesday, Aug. 18 from 6:00- 7:00 in the GHS cafeteria. We will show parents how the instruction will take place, talk about expectations and conduct initial log-in. It will be a great opportunity to ask any questions.

FIRST DAY! Wednesday, August 19!

We open our doors for the 2020-21 school year on Wednesday. We will be taking temperatures of students once they arrive on campus. Bus riders are the exeption as they will get their temps taken before they board the bus. A couple of items:

Masks- Must be worn at all times in the building. Bandanas may NOT be worn.

In the morning- Seniors and Juniors will wait for the first bell in the competition gym then go up the back hallway to their 1st period class. Freshman and sophomores will wait in the cafeteria and go up the main hallway to their first class.

Bell schedule- We have added five minute passing periods to allow teachers the opportunuity to spray down their rooms in between classes. School start and end times have been adjusted to accomodate (Please see below.)

Water- Bring bottled water as the water fountains will be turned off.

Extracurricular activities- Virtual learners may only practice before and after school with their teams.
