School Update 9.30.20

Dear GEMS Families,

It has been three weeks since we opened the school year and we are greatly appreciative of your patience and grace as we finally have been able to provide a Chromebook laptop for every student, internet hotspot connections for every family who qualifies for free or reduced lunch, and breakfast and lunch for every student. 

In spite of the circumstances, we are encouraged by the engagement of our students and the quality of instruction by our teachers. We realize that the impact of COVID-19 is impacting our students and their families in tremendous ways. As we move to the end of the first quarter (October 23), we want to share our plans for the next few months.
