An update on mask usage from the Superintendent:

Hello Everyone, 

It has been quite a week for sure. I appreciate your patience and flexibility as Granville now takes its turn with COVID. Many of our neighbors have been going through this since October,  so I still feel we have been very fortunate. I have spoken with our administration and healthcare team today regarding our current mask procedures on campus. Given the current uptick in cases and the obvious impact it is having on our instructional program, it is time for an adjustment. Beginning Monday, January 25th, mask use will be required for all students and staff while on campus.  Over the weekend, the three principals will be working out a schedule to provide mask breaks for all students, should they so desire. Students will not be required to wear masks during lunch. Faculty, staff, and administration will be able to take mask breaks during prep periods, breaks, and lunch as long as they are alone. 

Over the weeks to come, we will continue to monitor the situation and revisit this decision as conditions warrant. 

I thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 

Please stay safe and healthy, 
Mr. McGurl

Good morning,

Late last night I was notified of a positive test result of an individual at the GES building. As a result of the late hour, contact tracing was not able to be completed. As a result, GES will be transitioning to full remote for Friday, January 22. This included grades 3-6. We will be working with the Department of Health to conduct the tracing and any impacted individuals will be contacted. At this time, we anticipate returning to in-person learning on Monday, January 25th. Should that change, additional updates will be provided.

All staff should transition to your remote schedules and remain off-campus unless contacted directly by Mrs. Talmadge or Mrs. Clark.

Please be safe as we work to weather this together.

Mr. McGurl, Superintendent
