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.
