Floyd County Schools will remain closed for all staff and students through the end of the school year. This will allow us to implement the practice of SOCIAL DISTANCING which has proven to slow the spread of the virus.

    We’re encouraging all students to participate in these extended learning opportunities during the COVID-19 school closures.

    Our first instructional option for students is digital learning. All digital learning resources can be accessed and will work on a Chromebook, phone, tablet, or any computing device with internet access. The link to Digital Learning Assignments is here.

    For grades PK-5, an additional instructional option for students will be paper packets.

    On THURSDAY, APRIL 16th 3:00-6:00 pm we are asking ALL GLES families to drive through the school’s main parking lot. During this drive-through, we will have various stations set up for you to return items and pick items up. 

    1. We are asking for students to return all library books they have checked out. Mrs. McKenzie will be the first station and will have bins to drop the books in. 
    2. The next station will be the new paper assignments including a ELA workbook and a math workbook for each student, a phonics and sight word packet for K-2, and a grade level packet. Please pull to that station and tell us what grade level packets you need PK-5. 
    3. Then you’ll pull up to get a bag of your child’s personal belongings they may have left at school or need to complete work at home. 
    4. Next, our school nurse will be handing out any student medications that haven’t already been picked up. We’ll also have a container at this station for you to drop off cards some are making for health care workers. We’ll make sure they get these in hopes to show them how much we appreciate their service. 
    5. Finally, we’ll have a station where we’ll be checking out Chromebooks to students who indicated to their child’s teacher that they didn’t have a device at home. 

    Due to the escalating impact of the coronavirus, COVID-19, and in observance of the recommendations of the CDC and our state and local governments, we ask that you remain in your cars in order to practice social distancing. If you or your family members are experiencing any symptoms please stay home and we’ll make other arrangements for your child to get assignments.
