The return of more GCS students to in-person learning in January will bring some changes to how the district helps provide internet access to those learning from home. GCS will discontinue the use of SMART Buses after Dec. 22 so that those buses and drivers can be used to transport students to schools.
However, internet access will still be available. Families who need internet access for students learning remotely or for other schoolwork can request a hotspot from their child’s school. One hotspot will be available per household, only for those households that do not have internet access. These devices are free and will be available to use through the end of the school year.
The district is working to provide devices for all students and staff in the coming months.
