Each child, every day.
As you may be aware, yesterday Governor Gary Herbert issued a new statewide health order. Grand County School District will follow this order. So, for the next two weeks, until November 23, no extracurricular activities will be allowed. This includes high school and middle school athletics and activities, BEACON, and mentoring. No practices or competitions of any kind will be held. If a student wants to exercise independently not using school facilities, he/she may do so. GCSD staff is hopeful that this two week shut down will help in decreasing the statewide escalation of COVID-19 cases. Group meetings may occur virtually via Zoom or another platform, but can only be meetings (not practices or competitions). Thanks in advance for your support. We know that as a community we can do anything we strive to achieve if we do it together.
Please follow the link to view a letter from our Superintendent Taryn Kay regarding the recent COVID cases.
Reminder, this is the last week to fill out an application for free and reduced lunches if you haven't already done so. Please fill out an application even if you don't think you'll qualify. GCSD depends on federal funding that we receive when people qualify for free and reduced lunches (and breakfasts). The higher the percentage of people who qualify, the higher amount of funding we receive. This funding is used to help pay for all of the intervention programs that are available at HMK. This funding is how we are qualified as a Title I school-wide school. This funding allows us to provide enrichment programs for our students as well. Please take a moment and fill out the application. Thanks so much!
In an effort to keep the community informed, GCSD is letting you know that yesterday we were informed that one high school student tested positive for COVID-19. That student has been quarantined and has been cleared to return to school. Also, one HMK student tested positive. That student has also been quarantined and has been cleared to return to school. Finally, one HMK staff member tested positive (the student and teacher are in different grade levels and different classes) and is currently quarantined. In every case, the parents of each student in the impacted classes has been notified. The buildings have been thoroughly sanitized and classes are continuing. GCSD appreciates the efforts of all students, staff and parents to wear masks. Please continue wearing masks, particularly at extra-curricular activities. We know wearing masks makes a huge difference and the adults in the Moab community set the example for our students.
