School Closure Information

This is an update based on the school closure information we received from the Governor.    We have been anticipating this  closure and wanted to address several consistently asked questions.  We understand that this email probably doesn’t answer all of your questions, but we wanted to provide information in manageable chunks.  Please send your additional questions to Janelle King at [email protected]We will provide additional updates. 

Coronavirus School Closure Update 

Academic Assistance

Academic Assistance at GHS

Different levels of assistance are provided at GHS to meet the needs of our students. The bottom of the pyramid, or first tier, represents academic assistance available to all students as needed. The second tier of assistance is for those that need additional assistance because regular use of the first tier interventions were not enough. The third tier of assistance is available on a case-by-case basis.
