• Logistics


We are sorry to say that all overnight trips and field trips are cancelled from August through January 1, 2021. We will make a decision regarding other field trips every two months.


When we are able to be on campus, students will eat all lunch and snacks in classrooms. Our dining partner, Merriweather-Godsey, will provide pre-packaged lunches (as well as milk and milk alternatives individual containers) for all LMS students as part of tuition and for interested HS students for a fee. Families may opt to bring food from home. Information about food ordering by division will be shared prior to a return to on-campus instruction. Menus will be shared at least two weeks in advance. Students should bring a water bottle from home every day.


High School and Middle School interscholastic athletics have been cancelled through January 2021, including through our leagues ISL and MAC. However, GDS believes that athletics plays an important role in the wellbeing of our students, and so we have developed virtual skill and conditioning periods for each season from September 8 through January 1. Competitive seasons will launch January 1.


We will not be accepting non-essential visitors to campus. All guests who must be on campus will be asked to go through an on-site screening process. Parent meetings will be conducted through Zoom.


Input from Teachers

We have enlisted the help of more than 100 faculty/staff on 14 committees to create multiple different and complex scenarios for reopening.
