During winter months, it's sometimes necessary to delay, dismiss early, or change to an eLearning day due to inclement weather. District officials take student and employee safety seriously and use a comprehensive decision-making process involving 25+ staff members to ensure the superintendent makes an informed decision. How will you know if school has been delayed or changed to an eLearning day?
Parents should discuss plans for delays, early dismissal (pickup, supervision, etc.), or eLearning days due to inclement weather with their children.
Due to a recent USDA waiver, GCS is providing free school meals to all students for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. No application is needed. Breakfasts and lunches are available daily at all schools. This extension allows all students in our district to receive free meals regardless of their meal status. It applies to meals served to students when they are attending school in person, on days they are participating in eLearning and not in attendance, and meals served to students attending the Virtual Program.
