Following the lead of the vast majority of districts in the state in order to ensure the health and well being of students and staff, the Gardiner School Board of Trustees voted last night to remain closed and continue with remote learning for the remainder of the school year. In addition, with the well being of parents, students, and teachers at the forefront, it was decided that grades K-3 will end their school year on May 14th. Grades 4-12 will end their year on May 21st for students that are proficient as determined by their classroom teacher. Teachers will be sharing their specific requirements of obtaining proficiency in their classes by May 7th. Students in grades 4-12 deemed to be less than proficient by classroom standards will have a week of remediation and their school year will end May 28th.
We hope this will help alleviate some of the stresses of students and families while fulfilling our obligation of providing education to our students. More information in regards to the collection of school equipment from students, and how 7-12 students still needing to get their P.E. clothes/supplies can do that, will be coming next week.
Please be aware that personnel at the school, in conjunction with the Park County Health Department and Emergency Response, have begun discussions on what an opening in the fall may look like. Currently, it is too hard to guess at what the parameters may be in August, but having a plan for the worst case scenario is our goal until later in the summer when more information becomes available. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call, 848-7563.
