Greetings Gull Lake Students, Families, and Staff!
I hope this message finds all of you safe and well as we continue to
practice safe social distancing during our fun summer activities!
As you know, the Governor’s COVID-19 task force recently released a
“Return to School” roadmap for the coming school year. This
comprehensive document lays out a plan for a safe return to school
based on 6 phases. Michigan’s success with flattening the COVID-19
curve currently has us on pace to start the Fall at Phase 4, which
allows for a return to daily classroom learning utilizing specific safety
protocols that limit exposure and maximize safety for students and
staff in the school buildings.
Many of you are wondering what the Return to School roadmap will
look like for our Gull Lake School Community moving forward. Our
Fall Design team has been working on several scenarios that will
incorporate the 6 phases outlined in the Return to School roadmap.
The design team has taken the survey results from families and staff
into consideration and will continue to monitor conditions as the
Gull Lake Community Schools is a leader in Innovation and offers
many learning options for students and families. In addition to our
regular program offerings, we have developed a virtual learning
partnership and courses for both full-time and part-time virtual
students. Our Gull Lake Virtual Partnership staff are knowledgeable
and have more than a decade of experience providing quality virtual
programming for our students and families. All of our staff and
programs are here to serve you during this unprecedented time, and
we continue to pursue our mission of challenging and inspiring all
learners in all phases of our Safe Return to School Roadmap.
We will post regular updates in the days and weeks ahead so that you
can successfully prepare for a Safe Return to School this Fall. We are
also developing a list of Frequently Asked Questions specific to our
district that will be posted to our website for your convenience.
Please contact our central office with any questions! That number is
Be Safe and be Well!
