Good Afternoon War Eagle Families,
Due to the recent Governor’s order, Gray Collegiate Academy (GCA) will be closed beginning March 16, 2020, until March 31st or until further notice. Since GCA is a one to one school, this time will be considered an E-Learning environment. What this means is that students will continue to complete work via Google Classroom and teachers will be available via email for all communication. Teachers will be available during this period of time and actively working with students online. The teachers are the first line of communication if students are having issues with any virtual content. Please find attached the instructions for Google Classroom. Students have their login information provided at the beginning of the school year and parents were also sent invites at that time. We will also send parents a second invite tomorrow Monday, March 16, 2020, in case you missed the first one. Athletic contests along with practices will also be suspended until further notice.
As another recommendation, students are encouraged to use this time to work on their online Fundamentals of Computing, Workplace Communication, or Image Editing class. If any sophomore, junior, or senior has a study hall for second semester and finishes their coursework for the online classes listed above before we return to school, they can be removed from their mandatory study hall. Coach Brett Bethune will be available during this time if you are having computer issues. Please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org to resolve any computer issues.
