Parents' Decisions for 2020-21

In order to create class lists, restructure room utilization, and disburse resources equitably, the District is collecting parents' formal decisions about the upcoming school year regarding in-person instruction (for gr. K-5), hybrid instruction (for gr. 6-12), or remote learning. Additionally, the District is collecting parents' decisions regarding transportation on the school bus.

We encourage parents to complete the survey (link below) as soon as they feel prepared, but no later than August 11th. We understand that this is a difficult decision, but the sooner GCS has the information, the better we can plan for our students. We ask that if you have multiple children, please complete and submit the form for each child separately by selecting ""submit another response."
