MGSD Reopening Plans Information for the 2020-2021 School Year

Hello MGSD families,

We were hoping this communication would include which plan our schools will be opening under on August 17.  The State had told us they would announce that information on July 1.  Due to the upward trends with COVID-19 cases, however, they have decided to wait on that decision to see if there is a leveling of cases.  While we cannot give you exact information at this time, we have developed a framework for what reopening in MGSD will look like under whichever plan the state directs.  We know it is not ideal, but we do hope it will be helpful as you attempt to plan for the 2020 - 2021 school year.  We realize and understand that you will have many questions, and we ask for your patience while we work through all of the logistics involved in implementing this shift in learning. Additional information will be released on our specific implementation plan once the State tells us if we will be reopening under Plan A, B, or C this August.  In the meantime, we have developed a "one-stop-shop" for you to access our plan frameworks for Plan A, B, and C, as well as other information!  Please visit our new site at this link:  MGSD COVID19 Draft Reopening Plans.  Please note the FAQs page where you can submit your questions for response.  The link to this site can also be found on our website's homepage, first ICON directly under the main photo slide show at the top.  We appreciate all of our families and want to be as responsive as possible.  Please never hesitate to let us know if you have questions or concerns.  Thank you!
