GES Families! I have pulled two sections from Dr. Raley’s school reopening message to call your attention to the surveys that we need completed by 7/24. We need to know who will be attending school in person or virtually AND who will be riding the school bus. Please take a moment to complete both surveys using the links below.
1) In order for us to finalize student schedules, staff assignments, bus routes, and the many other operational decisions that we will need to make to prepare for school opening, we need more information from you. I ask all of our families to take a moment to complete this brief survey prior to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 24 for each child who is planning to enroll in a GCPS school for the 2020-21 School Year.
2) As noted in our health plan, students who ride on our school buses will be REQUIRED to wear a face covering. Students will also be seated one to a seat. As a result, this will significantly limit our bus capacity and the number of students we are able to transport at a time. Each bus will be limited to a capacity of approximately 20 students, a significant reduction in capacity at approximately 33% of what we have been able to transport in the past. As a result, we are asking assistance from families to consider transporting their own child both to and from school IF they are able to. In order to plan our routes for the new year based on our limited capacity, we need to know how you intend to get your child to school through this survey.
