Important Gurney Parent Information -- 2nd Trimester

Dear Gurney Elementary School Parents,

We have focused on preparing for a full school day return on November 17th and below are your links to important parent information about each school model. 
Dr. Hunt continuously monitors the District dashboard and our local data. Please keep in mind that if there is a significant, negative change in that data there is a possibility that we would remain in our hybrid model. For now, we continue to prepare for full school days in the 2nd Trimester. 
Please use the link below that provides important information regarding your child's school model starting 2nd Trimester, November 17th:

Rachel Jones, Principal
