As of Wednesday, August 18, 2021, SGCES, SGCMS, and SGCHS will move to Level 3 COVID operating for a duration of two weeks. This change is due to the increase in COVID cases and school transmission of the virus. Daily operation of the school will have minimal change for parents and students. The primary focus of Level 3 is social distancing (spread students out to limit contact) and also increasing cleaning procedures within the classroom and school. Our goal is to move back to Level 4 operating after 2 weeks. To achieve this, we need your help. The state of Tennessee government and health officials recommend the following to help prevent the spread of COVID-19: 1. Wear masks when indoors. 2. Wash your hands frequently. 3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. 4. Stay home when symptomatic and get tested. 5. Follow the TN Department of Health guidelines on quarantining. 6. Get vaccinated if possible. For more information on our COVID procedures or to view the full GCSSD COVID Operating Guide, visit www.gcssd.org and click on COVID Information from the home page. As always, we suggest you download the GCSSD app to ensure you are up-to-date with all the latest news/information/updates for GCSSD.
