At an emergency meeting on Tuesday evening, the GFW School Board was updated on data concerning COVID-19. Superintendent Jeff Horton stated that while numbers are increasing in the counties serving the District, the schools have stayed safe with cases in the single digits at both sites. But the data is starting to climb and with the current break for Thanksgiving if a change is needed, this would be a good time to make a change. Horton stated that with all that is going on he was amazed at how the staff is trying to find creative ways to interact with students. “I am greatful for their hard work and approach for this.”
The meeting was called to consider options for learning. Horton stated that it could be four weeks before numbers start to stabilize. With positive cases increasing throughout the State and most of the area schools around GFW going to Distance Learning, the GFW Incident Command Team discussed four possible options for the School Board to review.
