Greetings Students and Parents,

Tomorrow is the official first day of school for Early, Middle Colleges and Academies. I know many of you have questions about what to do for the first day of school.  Well, I am here to answer to your questions.

  • Due to the Pandemic Guilford County School has determined that students will learn remotely for the first 9 weeks of school.
  • The first 8 days of school (August 5th -14th)  the students will have some self-paced assignments for their Core (English, Math, Science, and Social Studies) classes in Canvas.  This is to allow teachers more time to plan and prepare for your regular scheduled remote learning classes. Students may also receive some assignments from their Elective teachers also.
  • Tomorrow students should log on to their CANVAS accounts. There, they will have access to an Advisory Course for an Orientation by a GCMC teacher.
  • Your Advisory teacher will be having a Virtual Orientation Session Tomorrow. Check your Canvas to see what time yours is scheduled for.  
  • If a student is new to Guilford County School District (from a charter, private, online, or home school program) , they may not have Canvas accounts and should contact the school office tomorrow for orientation information.
  • Your advisory teacher will be available to assist you for the first 8 days of school.
  • August 17th- Starts the Live lessons and the regular school day, which will be explained to you during Orientation tomorrow.
  • Students will not have access to PowerSchool at this time. We are still finalizing schedules. However, you can still access your courses through Canvas.

 

Parents,

Don’t forget we will have a Zoom parent orientation tomorrow at 6:00. Hopefully, we will be able to answer many of your questions. If you have additional question after the meeting, please feel free to email them to us and we will contact take.

 

Thank you

Ms. Keels
