GHS Students’ Schedules & Changes

Hi Everyone,

I hope that you are having a nice summer and staying healthy.
This morning all students in grades 9-12 for the 2020-2021 school year were emailed (to their Georgetown email address) a rough draft of their course list for next year.  Here is all of the information that you will need to know about schedules for next year:

*************************************

Georgetown Students and Families,

Thank you for your patience regarding schedules for the 2020-2021 school year.  Like so many other things this process has been different than years past and we need to comply with the current health and safety restrictions.  We will be allowing schedule changes by appointment only via the details below but here some important things to keep in mind.

In order to make a schedule change, you must complete the survey at the bottom of this email.  Upon reading the survey results we will determine if your change can be done electronically or if you need to meet with your counselor; we will email you either way.  Please come at your assigned appointment time.  Please wait outside and do not come into the cafeteria until your assigned time.  Only students will be allowed in, family members and friends must wait outside and properly social distance at 6′.

REMINDERS:

– These are drafts of schedules, final copies with teacher names and room numbers will be given at a later date

-If you have a level change you need to contact the department head to obtain a waiver, guidance will not be changing course levels without department head approval

-Please remember that there are a certain number of students in each class to comply with social distancing measures and we may not be able to add and drop in the same way we did in years past

-We will be seeing students by appointment only in the cafeteria on the following days and times:

8/18 – seniors (8am – 12pm)

8/19 – juniors (8am – 12pm)

8/20 – sophomores (8am – 10am)

8/20 – freshmen (10am – 12pm)

-If you are unable to come at your assigned time or are uncomfortable coming into the building please indicate that on your survey and we will arrange an alternative time or reach out via email or phone

-Students will be required to wear a mask while waiting outside of the school and while inside the school. Please social distance at 6′.

-Please do not come early for your appointment

-Practice social distancing while waiting for your appointment. Please remain 6ft apart from others and remain outside until your assigned time

Please let me know if you have any questions about this process.

Thank you.

Class of 2020 Prom Update

Dear Class of 2020,

 
I am reaching out to you to inform you that after reviewing Governor Baker’s continued restrictions on social gatherings with the management of the Danversport Yacht Club, consulting with your class advisor (Ms. Gibbs), faculty members, administration, and class officers, the prom scheduled for July 26th has been canceled. In replace of the prom, it was determined that the class would still like to have one last social gathering on the turf at GMHS. The event would be a casual BBQ on July 26th from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Students would receive their time capsules and be able to safely social distance with their classmates. Ms. Gibbs is currently working with local caters and fine-tuning details for a celebration that meets Governor Baker’s social gathering guidelines. Please contact Ms. Gibbs if you have any questions, gibbsc@georgetown.k12.ma.us 
 
Stay tuned for more details and I hope everyone is enjoying the summer.
 
Best,
 
Mr. Richards
