E-Learning days will be announced as soon as possible but no later than 6:00 AM using our automated calling system, email, social media, and through our website, www.gkschools.org. A school day cancellation may generate an E-Learning Day, which may include online assignments or packets of material previously sent home to be completed by students during the E-Learning Day.

Teachers will hold classes from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM, via Google Meet to provide instruction & support for students. Students will need to login to their Google Classroom accounts by 8:00 AM on E-Learning Days. Completion of the E-Learning Day activities allows for the district to count the canceled day as a day of attendance and thereby not have to make up the day at the end of the year.
