Dear GUSD Families and Friends, Last evening, the Globe Unified School District Governing Board approved the return to in-person instruction for our district beginning September 21, 2020. Their approval was for the three options (TKO- online; Hybrid- 2 days online, 2 days in-person; and In-Person - 4 days) attendance model that they had originally approved in July. The protocols including face covering requirements and other requirements for preventing COVID - 19 spread will be in place as we go back to in-person instruction.
During tonight's meeting, our Governing Board voted for GUSD to return to in-person learning on Monday, September 21, 2020 offering parents/families the choice of the original three learning options (TKO - 100% online, hybrid, and 100% in-person). More information to follow.
