Dear GCPS Families:
During his conference today, Governor Northam has decided to close all public and private schools until the end of the school year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic
We are promised that the Virginia Department of Education will provide guidance to all divisions in our efforts to provide continuity of instruction and food services during this time. Other areas on which we are to be given prompt guidance include:
- Graduation Requirements
- Awarding Standard Credit and Verified Credit (in the absence of SOL testing)
- Closing the instructional gaps created by the loss of instruction.
Please frequent the website to receive updates. As these and many more questions are answered in the next few days, weeks, and months to come, I will make every effort to maintain communication with you. We will do everything in our power to continue the traditions of our school system - our Class of 2020 Eagles will walk across the stage at some date in the future.
I understand these are uncertain times for us all. The decisions being made are unprecedented and there is no script to follow. However, #iBelieve we will weather this storm together, and we will come through this on the other side stronger, and more prepared to take on any future challenge.
Dr. Kim Evans
