Good afternoon, families: Today we heard the State of MI, MDHHS and Governor Whitmer, share their concerns about the escalation of community spread of the Covid-19 virus. The State encouraged but only recommended that districts consider closing high schools and sports for two weeks after spring break. At this time, we have met with our local county health officials and do not feel that G-A needs to close our high school for virtual learning nor shut down our athletic teams. Fortunately, so far this first week back after spring break, the rapid antigen tests our athletes have undergone, have produced all negative test results. We also are thankful that it is spring and that our sports teams have moved outdoors. However, athletes still sit on buses together and in dugouts, together; therefore, it is still critical that our students continue mitigation strategies at all times. Outside of school is also important.. Doing so will help our athletes continue to play and our schools remain open for face to face instruction. We continue to appreciate our families' support! We will share updated information from our Kalamazoo County Health Department as soon as it is available. Respectfully, Wendy Somers

*** Schedule Change *** Our G-A staff are scheduled to get their 2nd covid vaccinations next Wednesday, Feb. 24th. Yeah! Looking ahead, we need to make a minor schedule change to accommodate any potential side effects that our staff may experience. Next Thursday, February 25th will be a VIRTUAL learning day for all students. Teachers will provide more information on their virtual plans. Free daycare for K-5th students will be available. It is our sincere hope that this will be the LAST schedule change that we will need to make. We recognize the difficulties that schedule changes make for families & we appreciate your patience. Thank you!
