G-A Families... We appreciate your patience with the start of the 2020 school year. We understand that the hybrid model, in which students come to school in cohorts: Monday and Tuesday group or Thursday and Friday group, may create daycare challenges for you and your family. We want to let you know of a free opportunity—the G-A Enhancement Center for K-5 students. This will be based on a first come, first serve basis. We have a limited number of spots. Please click the link below for more information. https://www.g-aschools.org/o/gacs/page/g-a-enhancement-center

Last week the Roadmap for reopening schools in MI was published.  We will now start working on our G-A Plan for reopening this fall.  We will have it published on our website by August 17.  It will go before our Board of Education on August 10, 2020 and then to our local ISD for approval.  We are required to submit a plan for all Phases:  1-3, 4, 5 and 6; however, we are crossing our fingers that we will at least start at Phase 4!  Please know that our Phase 4 plan will include face to face instruction, but that we will also offer an online virtual academy to all K-12 students whose families do not feel comfortable sending their child to school under a Phase 4 situation.  Information on that virtual learning academy will be forthcoming soon.  Stay tuned for more information to come!  And stay safe.  Our students are counting on all of us to follow the guidelines so that Covid-19 cases and death rates do not go up and they can return to school safely.
