To Prevent COVID-19 Spread, GCS Will Move to Remote Learning for One Week
Nov. 18, 2020 – In an effort to prevent community spread of COVID-19 following the Thanksgiving holiday, GCS will return to remote learning for all students between Nov. 30 and Dec. 4. Most employees will work from home during that time.
Wednesday, Nov. 25, will continue to be a vacation day for students and 10-month employees such as teachers; other employees will work from home if possible. Thursday, Nov. 26, and Friday, Nov. 27, are district holidays for all staff and students. GCS calendars have been updated to reflect the change.
To ensure that no child goes hungry because of the building closures, School Nutrition Services will modify its grab-and-go meal plan. Extra meals will be provided on Tuesday, Nov. 24, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at all schools and mobile meal locations.
Between Nov. 30 and Dec. 4, meals will be distributed between 11 a.m. and noon at the mobile sites and the following school locations:
Irving Park Elementary
Gillespie Park Elementary
Gateway Education Center
Haynes-Inman Education Center
Nathanael Greene Elementary
Reedy Fork Elementary
Allen Jay Prep
Johnson Street Global Studies
High Point Central High
Oak Hill Elementary
Triangle Lake Elementary
On Monday, Dec. 7, GCS will return to its current schedule, in which students in pre-kindergarten through second grade and select students with special needs or circumstances have returned for in-person instruction. Remaining students will return in January 2021.
