GHS SchoolCast message 4-17-20.
On Wednesday, April 15, Governor Lee called on all public schools in Tennessee to remain closed for the remainder of the academic year. Greeneville City Schools will follow this recommendation and remain closed for the remainder of the 19-20 school year.
Additionally, on Wednesday the TN Secondary School Athletic Association announced that all remaining TSSAA events for 2019-20, including all spring sports and the postponed BlueCross Basketball Championships, are cancelled. Information will be given to member schools regarding summer athletic activities in regard to the sports calendar at a date in the near future. Once received, this information will be communicated by GMS and GHS Athletic Directors and Coaches.
All playgrounds, ballfields, and stadiums on school property, as well as school parking lots to use for recreational purposes, will remain closed until further notice. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. GHS has also made the decision to cancel our Junior/Senior prom. Plans for Graduation, Awards recognition events, spring sports Senior Nights, and Senior Banquet are in the process of being formulated. We will be releasing these changes in the coming weeks.
GHS is continuing it’s distance learning through the end of the school year. Students are encouraged check their school email and to reach out to their teachers at either GHS or GTC through email, calling the school or other communications established by their teachers. Student feedback and grading is continuing and can be viewed through your Powerschool accounts. While we are not physically at school, school is still in session. Our expectation and actions are going to be driven by this…what we are providing students to work on is relevant, useful, purposeful and engaging. Students who choose not to participate run the risk of having deficits of their own choosing that could harm them educationally in years to come. The revised student grading policy is posted on the GHS Website and will also be provided in the weekly email.
The Greeneville City School District School Nutrition Team will continue to provide meals to anyone 18 years of age or younger on the following schedule. One breakfast and one lunch will be provided on Mondays, two breakfasts and two lunches will be provided on Tuesdays, and two breakfasts and two lunches will be provided on Thursdays. This will provide five breakfast meals and five lunch meals per week for each child served. Pickup will continue to be available at either Hal Henard Elementary School or at Greeneville High School from 10:00 am till 12:30 pm. Delivery service will also continue to be available for those without reliable transportation. To sign up for the feeding program, please call 423-787-8016 or 423-278-9156 or complete the online survey on our district website.
While none of the present circumstance we are in is optimal, we can all still find things to be grateful for. Focus on the positive, do your part to lessen the amount of time we have to remain under these restrictions, and please do not hesitate to call GHS at 787-8030 or 787-7715 during normal school hours if there is anything we can assist you with. Go Devils!
