GCS Modifying School Start Times on Friday

Jan. 6, 2022 – Due to bus driver shortages in light of the surge in COVID-19 cases across our community, GCS will modify school schedules for tomorrow, Friday, January 7th. 

Elementary schools will start on time, but some buses will be late. GCS advises all parents to check the Here Comes the Bus app for the most up to date information. 

Elementary magnet schools, including Johnson St and Allen Jay Prep, will remain on the elementary schedule and will run on time.

Middle schools will start an hour late on Friday.

High schools and early/middle colleges will start an hour and half late on Friday.  However, buildings will be open, and teachers will be on site.  Parents can drop off students at the normal time and walkers can arrive at the normal time if they choose.

Middle and High school magnet schools and Early/Middle Colleges follow the hour and a half delay.

The district will continue to work diligently over the weekend to come up with a plan for what next week will look like given the surge in Coronavirus and increased bus driver shortages.
