October 16, 2020 Update

Dear GMS Families,

Below are a few updates for you:

  • If you would like to have a parent / teacher conference and have not yet signed up, please email Ms. Juliane Halliwell at jhalliwell@groton.k12.ct.us or call her at (860) 446-4200.  The conferences are being held virtually on Wednesday (10/21) from 1 to 3PM and on Thursday (10/22) from 1 to 3PM and 5 to 7PM.
  • As a reminder, when students are at home distance learning, they must answer the attendance check in question on Google Classroom within the first 15 minutes of the start time of each class to be marked present.  If students answer the attendance check in question later than 15 minutes after the start time of the class, they will be marked tardy, and if they answer the attendance check in question after the class ends, they will be marked absent, even if they have completed class assignments, including Zoom meetings during the class.  Anything that you can do to reinforce this with your child(ren) is much appreciated.  Thank you.
  • We look forward to seeing students in school again beginning on Monday (10/19) following our hybrid model schedule. 
  • Please note that all middle school students will be dismissed at 12:32 PM on Thursday and Friday (10/22 & 10/23) due to our parent / teacher conference schedule.


Have a great weekend.
