For the 2021-22 school year, Grundy County Schools will offer in-person learning across all grade bands.  Recognizing the benefits of in-person learning, we look forward to the first full day of school on Monday, August 9th.

 During the 2020-21 school year, our teachers, staff members, families, and students worked diligently to ensure last year was an overwhelming success.  With our 1:1 initiative in place and quality educators at the helm, we are prepared to maintain a safe and productive learning environment for all students.

 With the new school year approaching, GCS will utilize the updated CDC school guidelines to help modify COVID-19 practices throughout the year.  With this, a few updates are listed below:

  • While encouraged, masks will be optional for all students, employees, and visitors on our campuses.
  • Students, teachers, visitors, and staff members are encouraged to continue proper handwashing and sanitizing.
  • Temperature checks (for employees, guests, and students entering our facilities) will not be continued for the 2021-22 school year.
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting will continue to take place.
  • Grundy County Schools encourages students, staff members, and teachers to stay at home when sick, and the district encourages the use of outdoor classrooms/spaces for learning and exercise.  
  • Additionally, these guidelines may be changed based on local transmission rates or guideline updates from the CDC.  District communication will be provided throughout the year.
