GBC is following the Governor’s executive order by providing one designated employee who frequently visits the job sites making sure subcontractors are following the social distancing guidelines. With all of our campuses closed, some of the work scheduled for this summer has begun this week. The construction of the elementary school vestibule and main office remodel is under way. The principal and secretaries stations have been set up in temporary locations in the building. You cannot enter through the Smith street front doors until further notice. Our Elementary temporary entry will be on 6th street side of building. Distance learning has most employees working from home with google classroom and zoom meetings with students and families. Our principals and secretaries do not have access at home to the computer data bases so they must come in and work in the building from time to time.
Our hope is that with the earlier start time our school staff will occupy the new and remodeled facilities in July rather than August. The construction of the two new classrooms at the high school is in the sheet rock phase and the two new classrooms at the elementary school are not far behind. The new fire alarm system is being installed throughout the district.
