COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

Our plan for the 2021-22 school year is for all students to be on campus full days, five days a week. Safety measures include vaccination, masking, hygiene, ventilation, and cleaning. We understand that we will still be living with COVID-19 and that extenuating circumstances, including Department of Health-ordered quarantines, may dictate temporary class or individual pivots to GDS Virtual Campus.
