Germantown Municipal School District is committed to keeping you informed about rapidly evolving events taking place this week. Our top priority is the safety and health of our students and staff. Below, we’ve compiled a brief overview:
GMSD is developing parent resources
The district does not know when and if the district will move to distance learning based on TDOE guidance. However, the district office is developing plans to distribute multiple standards-based resources as well other resources for parents to continue learning opportunities.
More than 75% of our standards have been taught and learned. Our staff will be compiling master lists of standards that have not yet been covered.
All of these resources will be available on our website over the course of the next two weeks. Teachers may be reaching out to students and/or parents to say hello.
In an effort to create a uniform learning management platform for grades K-12, the district has expanded Schoology to be available at the elementary school level. Google Hangouts for all students will be utilized by our staff. Virtual training sessions will be provided to parents beginning the week of March 23rd.
Student Meals During GMSD Closure
While GMSD schools are closed, all students may obtain meals from several Shelby County Schools' and other locations, beginning March 23. A listing of meal distribution sites can be found at the following link: http://www.scsk12.org/coronavirusfacts/studentmeals
