GKMS Families,

Quarter 2 ends next Thursday on January 14th and the current Encore rotation ends on Friday, January 22nd.  In an effort to support all of our students, Monday, January 11th will be synchronous (live instruction at their regularly scheduled time in the class Zoom meeting) for students who currently have a “D” or “F” in their class.  Students who have a grade of “C” or higher in a class will attend asynchronously (log into Google Classroom and complete assigned work by the teacher; this will be used for attendance).  Teachers have let students know if they need to attend synchronously or asynchronously.  

On January 19th we will potentially be returning to the In-Person Hybrid Model for learning.  We will be making one change when we return to In-Person Hybrid, the students will move from class to class rather than students remaining in one room throughout the day.  For the most part, students will be moving from room to room with the same classmates.  We will continue to follow safety guidelines recommended by Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Department of Health.  

As always, please contact me with any questions at or call me at 815-784-5222.
