COVID-19 UPDATE: NOVEMBER 13, 2020
CGCSC has had 31 positive COVID-19 cases this week with 21 of those in our middle and high schools. The number of COVID-related absences has also jumped this week for both students and staff members.
These metrics, along with the increasing number of cases we are seeing the county and state, have prompted our Board, administrators, and teachers association to agree to extend our Blended schedule for Grades 6-12 through the end of the Semester. (Click here to view the calendar.)
No changes are planned for elementary students at this time.
We will continue to monitor daily the number of absences and cases, along with our other metrics. If we see the numbers improve and determine we can return Grades 6-12 to a full in-person schedule, we will do that. However, if those numbers indicate the need to move to eLearning, we will make that change.
We encourage all families, including elementary families, to have plans in place, should a change to the planned schedule be necessary. These changes may be made at the school level or for all elementary or secondary schools. As we have learned these decisions may need to be made quickly.

CGCSC District Status Considerations
CGCSC will update the current district status weekly.
The metrics being considered include, but are not limited to:
- IDH County Metric Map (Johnson County)
- COVID-19 Impact: Number of COVID-19 Positive Cases in each CGCSC school
- COVID-19-Related Absences: Number of students, staff on quarantine, isolation
- 20%+ may trigger eLearning
- 15-20% may trigger Blended
- 10% or less return to Traditional
- Availability of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Availability of Cleaning Products/Supplies
These metrics are being considered independently and collectively. A decision to move to a different stage will be determined in consultation with the Johnson County Health Department.
