GCS Students and Families: On December 16, 2021, the Garrard County School Board updated the district COVID-19 plan. The full plan is available for review on the district's website. The primary change to the plan was to allow parents, students, and staff the ability to decide if they would wear a mask. As we return to classes, parents, students, and staff can opt to wear a mask or not to wear a mask. This option does not extend to buses or other district transportation. A federal mandate remains in place for masking on buses and other district transportation. Please note there are no changes to other protocols or expectations. Parents & guardians should continue to assess students prior to sending or bringing them to school. Students who are sick should remain home. Students who have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting a result should not attend school until a negative result has been received.

The GC Area Technology Center offers a Phlebotomy pathway for our senior students. The students have to perform thirty venipunctures and ten capillary sticks before taking their certification test in the spring. There are 24 students in the program- which means 960 practice sticks! We are thankful for nursing instructors and GC staff who volunteer to help our students get better!
Please share this reminder to our students and families! We are so encouraged to see the amount of items already donated at each school to benefit the Garrard Food Pantry! If you have not yet donated and would like to, there is still time! Each school has a designated employee and room number where items can be collected. We will be collecting items until this Friday, November 19th. Thank you for supporting our community!
