As you may be aware, Washington County is experiencing another spike in COVID 19 cases. Unfortunately, Granville is as well. Due to a lack of transportation staff, the Granville Central School District will be transitioning to a hybrid learning on Tuesday November 9th, Wednesday November 10th, and Friday November 12th. There are no classes on Thursday November 11th in celebration of Veterans Day.

Under this model, students who can be dropped off at school for in-person instruction, should do so.

Campus Drop Off Times Begin At:

  • MJT- 7:50 am

  • GES- 8:05 am

  • Jr/Sr- 7:45 am

Campus Pick Up Times Begin At:

  • MJT- 2:15 pm

    • 2:15-2:45 - K and 1 will be dismissed on Lee Road

    • 2:45-3:15 - Grade 2 and 3 will be on the CAFETERIA SIDE of the building

    • **Grades 2 and 3 Siblings can be dismissed with the other sibling in grades K or 1 on Lee Road

  • GES- 2:55 pm

  • Jr/Sr- 2:25 pm

Students from GES and MJT, whose parents need an earlier drop off time, may be dropped off at the Jr/Sr Main Courtyard at 7:20. These students will be supervised in the high school gym and will be shuttled by bus to MJT for the start of the day. GES students will be walked by supervisors to GES from the high school gym for the start of the day.

Students who are unable to be dropped off will need to attend remotely via Google links that will be provided by your child’s teacher or building administrator. Students that attend in-person or remotely will be marked as present for attendance purposes. If you are a family that needs a hotspot to connect remotely, due to a lack of internet service, please contact your child’s building’s main office to coordinate picking one up.

At present, we anticipate returning to our normal operating procedure on Monday November 15th. If that is not possible, an additional notice will be provided.

Students that attend the following programs will have transportation provided under the hybrid model. The transportation department will be in contact with any special transportations runs both in and out of district to make arrangements.

BOCES ALL Day Students - Bus 121

BOCES CTE Students (If you are remote, you will need to get to school to catch the 11:00 am bus)- Bus 121 & 113

Ft Ann Bears Program - Van S22

Prospect Center/ Sanford Street - Bus 109

MYERS Center/ St. Colemans - Bus 126

I thank you for your attention to this as we work through what seem to be increasingly challenging times. 

Mr. McGurl

Good Afternoon, 
Unfortunately, we are continuing to see COVID positivity rates spiking across Washington County. As of Sunday, the numbers were over 8%. As a reference point, 2+% was our former reference point for serious concern last year. 

The new process and procedure for contact tracing and notification are cumbersome and time-consuming. The county is overwhelmed, and our staff is working all hours trying to keep students and staff safe in school and notified of any possible issues as fast as possible. As always, we want our information to first and foremost be accurate and as timely as possible. 

As a result of the increased positivity rate, we are making some temporary changes to our operational procedures. I apologize in advance, and I sincerely hope that these adjustments are only temporary. These changes will begin on 9/14/21.
  • Buildings are closed to the public during the day and after school. Should you need to contact the school, please do so by phone. If an in-person meeting is required, it will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.  
  • All large staff meetings move to virtual unless discussed with my office in advance. Pre-scheduled GSSA meeting for this week will be allowed, as will the first mem Staff must remain in the building for the meetings.
  • Conferences and meetings at other schools should be avoided. Please see your building principal to discuss any plans you may have had that need to be adjusted. 
  • All staff/break rooms are closed until further notice. 
  • Student functions such as dances, team dinners, etc., will be postponed for the time being. A final decision on Halloween parades will be made as the event gets closer.  
  • Open house events for the year will be transitioning to a virtual format, similar to last year. 
  • Field Trips are postponed at this time. 
Again, I apologize for the inconvenience, and I remain hopeful these restrictions will be short-lived.
