2020-2021 Restart Planning


As you know, there has been a change in the learning environment options for the school year. Instead of a 100% In Person Option, we now have a Hybrid Option. There is still an option for 100% Remote/Online. The district has asked schools to provide a NEW survey to families. We ask that all families complete this survey by August 7th or sooner.

  • For the Survey in Spanish or other languages, please email us

If you completed the prior survey, we are asking that you complete the new survey at this time as well.

Thank you so much for your
cooperation and support!

  • Our teachers have been working on creating the bell schedules linked above:
  • Remote/Online Bell Schedule (page 2)
  • We will use this schedule for the first two weeks of school while we are online; in the event the school is open and then moves back to online; and for students who select the 100% Online/Remote Option.
  • Hybrid Bell Schedule (page 3)
  • We will use this schedule when we move into a Hybrid learning environment.
  • Students who select the 100% Online/Remote Option will follow this schedule when we move into Hybrid except they would not attend in person.
  • District Guidance (page 4-5) including information on planning for Fridays.

We are working on scheduling classes for students. The Counselors return next week and we will update you on where we are with class schedules next week.

GMHS Restart Questions and FAQ
  • Submit your questions to the GMHS Restart Questions form.
  • See our GMHS Restart FAQ based on questions submitted by our families. We know that it does not answer all the questions you have, but we hope it is a start. We will continue to update the FAQ and will include it in our weekly Principal Report for easy access.
Construction Update

Please follow the above link on our website for updates and pictures of the construction this summer! You won't believe the in-progress photos - take a look!

  • While our construction projects are moving along nicely, they moved up the timeline with the school closure.
