Community Update - March 18, 2020

On Tuesday, March 17 the Groton Area Administrative Team met in discussion on providing flexible learning opportunities for our students moving forward.  In particular, how can we provide educational services during the week of March 23-27 given the known closure through that time.  This afternoon a draft plan was sent to our teachers seeking their input and clarifying questions.  Further revisions will be made on Thursday with the anticipation that we can provide a plan to our students and parents on Thursday afternoon or Friday.  Be on the lookout for information coming pertaining to learning opportunities for our students.

The sack lunch opportunities currently being provided will continue through the week of March 27.  Please take advantage of this service if it would be helpful to you.

We’ve received notification that the April 4, 2020 ACT testing date has been postponed to June 13, 2020.  Those students who had registered for that test should have received notification from ACT regarding the postponement.

As a community, please continue to follow the guidelines and recommendations of health officials including frequent hand washing with soap and water, practicing “social-distancing,” and not meeting in groups of larger than ten people.  We are all being called upon to do our part in reducing the impact of this situation.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this new reality.
