09-02-2021 — An important message for GES families

Dear GES Families:

Beginning Friday, September 3, 2021, Gilbert Elementary School will temporarily shift all students from face-to-face instruction to e-learning through Friday, September 10. 

Students are tentatively scheduled to come back to school and resume face-to-face instruction on Monday, September 13. There will be no school-related clubs, activities and/or events during this time.

Please know we did not make this decision lightly, as a shift in instructional model impacts all families.

We made this decision based on the school’s percentage of students and staff who are positive, as well as the high percentage of students and staff who are also quarantined.

For these reasons, we will temporarily move all students to e-learning from September 3–10. Again, we will tentatively shift back to face-to-face learning on Monday, September 13. 

Your child’s teacher will reach out to you with information about learning soon. During this e-learning period, your student is expected to participate in e-learning activities and complete work given to your student by the teacher. 

Families can pick up no-cost student meals on Friday, September 3 from 12–1 p.m., in front of the school. 

Thank you for your understanding as we work to provide quality instruction for your students while keeping our children and staff safe. 

Dr. Greg Little, Superintendent and Will Moody, GES Principal
