Road to Reopen October 26, 2020

Are you looking for the online portal to select 2nd semester learning modes?

October 26, 2020 

The online portal for families to select virtual or in-person learning for the second semester is now open.  The portal will close on November 9th at midnight.  Any students who have not made a selection in the platform will be automatically enrolled in our hybrid/in-person learning model for the second semester.

Please read the information below carefully.  Last week, we shared the Superintendent's Report with you via email. With a run-time of approximately 12 minutes, Superintendent Manuel answers questions and goes into detail about the upcoming school choice window.

Frequently asked questions about current hybrid and in-person protocols and models can be reviewed here.  Frequently asked questions about the fully virtual model can be reviewed here. The Digital Learning Student Handbook is also a good resource for those considering our fully virtual model. 

Our team is also available via the Let's Talk App if you have any questions about either virtual or in-person learning. 


Fully Virtual Model

  • A GMSD instructor will be provided for your child.

  • All teacher assignments (in Semester 2) are subject to change

  • Some sections may be a mixture of students from different schools

  • GMSD has over 7,000 devices, a new Technology Help Center, and dedicated technology staff for support


In-person Model 

  • GMSD will prioritize maximization of in-person time while following recommended safety protocols
  • Depending on COVID case counts and programmatic enrollment, this model may include any of the following scenarios:
  • Full-time, five days
  • Hybrid, four-five days (Learning Lab Rotations)
  • Hybrid Scheduling (alternating days, split days, etc.)
