2. NEW COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance . . . .For those of you who closely follow the guidance that we receive from the health organizations (Centers for Disease Control, State Department of Health and the Hancock County Health Department), we did receive updated guidance a week ago. This guidance makes allowances for schools to bring students and staff back from exclusions quicker than the conventional time frames. This includes individuals who have tested positive and individuals who have been identified as close contacts. You may reference these changes on our website. We began to implement these options with our staff this week, and we will roll out the changes with our student population starting January 18th. See the attached document found in the download section below for more specific details.

3. NWEA assessments for Grade 7 started on January 20th.

  • ELA will test Jan. 20-21
  • Science will test Jan. 24-25
  • Math will test Jan. 26-27
  • Make Ups will occur through Feb. 2

4. Mark your calendars for FEBRUARY 14TH = eLearning Day. Students will not be at school that day but they will have assignments to complete virtually. All teachers in GC will be involved in Professional Development that day. Teachers will have specific office hours available that morning to assist. More information will be shared as we get closer to this date.
