    Remote Learning Attendance:


    Live Teaching: Attending Live Zoom Sessions for scheduled periods:

    • Orange Schedule: 1st, 5th periods (Monday & Thursday unless otherwise noted)
    • Blue Schedule: 2nd, 3rd, 4th periods (Tuesday & Friday unless otherwise noted )
    • "You" Schedule: Advisory (Wednesday unless otherwise noted)

    Independent Learning Time: ("You" Schedule): Engaging in assigned independent work or work directly with the teacher for each period 1st-5th

    Excused Absences

    • If a student cannot attend the live teaching or independent learning time as described above, then parents may request the absence be marked excused by contacting the school attendance office or reporting the absence through the new ParentVue app or website. Allowable excused absences from prior years remain the same and apply to the 2020-21 school year.
    • When, on a regular basis, a student is unable to attend to either the live teaching or independent learning time due to special circumstances, then the parents should contact the school principal to initiate the development of an alternative learning plan with teacher(s) and counselor. Examples of special circumstances include:
      • Parent’s work schedule or other obligations during the regularly scheduled school hours, until other arrangements can be made.
      • Student’s lack of necessary instructional tools, including internet and broadband access or connectivity.
      • Other COVID-19 related circumstances as determined between school and parent or emancipated youth.
      • Student’s employment or other family obligations during regularly scheduled school hours that are temporarily necessary due to COVID-19 until other arrangements can be made.

     

    GKHS Building Hours: GKHS is open from 7am-3pm, Monday-Friday.

     

    Self-Guided Tours of GKHS: Families can visit GKHS and complete a self-guided tour of the building. You would need a QR reader (most smart phones have them) to access the self-guided tour. Look for directions in the main office when you enter. 

     

    Child Nutrition Services

    We will have 12 Meals in Motion locations throughout the district this fall. Meals can be picked up for your student at any of the 12 locations nearest you. We’ll be utilizing curbside pick up to maintain social distancing.

    School meals will be free this fall
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has just extended the waiver that allows us to offer free meals to all kids (ages 1-18) this fall, just like we did in the spring and over the summer. This means meals will not be charged as we previously announced. Please keep the meal card you were recently sent in the mail, as the waiver is only extended through December 31, 2020.

    Student meal cards have been mailed to your home address on file with the district. The barcode on the card is unique to each enrolled student and must be presented at the time of meal service. Your student’s ID barcode can also be obtained using the StudentVUE app.

    More information can be found at bethelsd.org/meals.

    Emergency School Meals Program
    Families may be eligible to get additional help with food benefits. These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT Emergency School Meals Program or P-EBT. Applications for the Emergency School Meals Program are due by September 11. Learn more at:
