GMS Principal's Corner
October 24, 2021
Dear Galvin Families,
As Interim Superintendent Folan stated in his email on Saturday afternoon, the Galvin Middle School has passed all of its tests and we have received approval to re-open the building for all GMS students and staff on Monday, October 25.
We look forward to welcoming back all students on Monday which is a Day 7 in our schedule rotation. All after school clubs, activities, and the late bus will resume as normal.
We thank you for your continued support.
We want to take this opportunity to thank our students, families, faculty and everyone who helped make this week of remote learning a success. We received feedback from students, parents and teachers reporting that remote learning was productive, students were on task, and that no learning was lost. This is a credit to the outstanding professionalism of our faculty, and the support of our amazing parents and community.
