Glynn County Schools has delayed the start of the school year from Tuesday, Aug. 11, to Thursday, Aug. 20, to give students, staff and families more time to prepare for the new school year. A revised calendar has also been released (view under Important Links below).
Families still have the option between traditional instruction or continue virtual learning from home. A comparison of the two learning options can be viewed here.
Those who choose virtual learning commit to at least nine weeks at home for elementary and middle school students or one semester for high school students.
Students opting for online instruction will be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities and will be subject to the same eligibility requirements. This includes measures such as requiring face masks by adults and encouraging students to do the same, eliminate field trips and implement a limited lunch menu with grab-n-go items.
