Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday (11/26). Our Thanksgiving break will run from Wednesday (11/25) through Sunday (11/29). We will have 100% remote learning for ALL GNGHS students on Monday (11/23) and Tuesday (11/24). Monday will be a red day (with online core classes for grades 9 and 12 while grades 10 and 11 are doing their online elective classes). Tuesday will be a blue day (with online core classes for grades 10 and 11 while grades 9 and 12 do their online elective classes). PATHS students are expected to do PATHS remotely on both days. We hope to have our hybrid schedule back up and running beginning Monday (11/30). Stay tuned!

Reminder: The Superintendent sent out an update to all parents on November 9th. This update explained the process we will be using in the event that parents want to change their student’s status as far as being in-person and/or going 100% remote for their academic plan for the 2nd semester. The window to let us know your preference/option for your student(s) will be from 11/09 – 11/30. This will give the district a month to make all the necessary changes and/or adjustments to our class assignments (both remote and in-person) as well as to the transportation schedules. Our goal is to inform those families who requested a change by 01/04/21. These changes will go into effect on 01/19/21, which is the first day of the second semester.
That concludes this week’s edition of the Patriot Express! We wish you all a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving break. Take care and stay well.
