A Message From Superintendent, Brian Pearson

GCS Parents:

Thank you for your patience and support as we work through the challenges of returning to school.  Overall, this first week was a success: 80% of our students were back on campus and 20% were engaged in our new distance platform.  We do recognize that the changes in building schedules and protocols this year have led to some increased traffic issues, especially at the east end of town.  Although there is no easy fix for this problem, we are confident that we can make the issues more manageable.  We are working on opening up a morning latchkey program at GIS, NOE, and SME that should help to stagger the drop off times and reduce traffic congestion.  Our transportation department is also working with the city police department to explore traffic patterns and possible route changes.  I am confident that we can take steps to reduce parent wait time and increase safety.  I appreciate you working with us as we address these important issues.
