As news spreads that MCPSS has delayed opening for on-campus classes until September 1st and thereafter will conduct classes virtually for nine weeks, GSCS has been inundated with questions regarding our start date and class format. Government Street Christian will open on-campus, traditional school as planned on Monday, August 10th. We will host a Meet-the-Teacher day on Friday, August 7th. Scheduling information will be available next week regarding specific times for families to meet their teacher. Be assured that GSCS will take every reasonable precaution to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students. GSCS class sizes will remain at approximately twelve students per teacher in order to be more effective in instruction and practicing COVID-19 prevention measures.
