Coronavirus Update - -3/16/2020

Dear Families,

Thank you for your patience and support during this extraordinary time of uncertainty as we navigate our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and students, and their families. We wanted to provide you with a brief update of our plans to support students moving forward.

  • All school principals will be surveying their students and families to determine what is needed to support at home learning – either through printed or digital materials.
  • GGUSD has 2,000+ dedicated teachers who are working hard to develop alternative education plans that will support at home learning for all students.  School principals and teachers will soon share important information regarding distribution and access to online materials. GGUSD will also share with you a link to a student portal providing direct access to digital textbooks.
  • Our Special Education Department is working closely with the instruction offices to provide instructional supports for students.
  • Our Student Services and Transportation departments are working with school site nurses to ensure that parents may pick up any of their medications that are currently on-site.  If any family is not able to make it to the school site for pick-up of medications, please contact your school nurse or site principal.
  • GGUSD is hosting a Drive-Through and Walk-Up Meal Service program at 13 school sites. Visit www.ggusd.us/coronavirus for the list of locations and additional information. All Food Service workers will wear hairnets and gloves and take extra precautions to ensure food distribution remains a safe and sanitary process.

GGUSD is proud of our dedicated employees who are committed to ensuring we provide exemplary services to students while campuses are closed. 

On behalf of the Board of Education, I want to thank our community for their support and understanding as we work through this time together. If we practice patience and understand that adapting quickly is critical, we will be able to continue to serve and support our students and families.
