GDS students, back together again and on one campus.
 
Last year, we learned that while we are able to provide high quality programming virtually, there are unique and significant benefits to in-person learning. We are pleased to have all students and staff on campus full days, five days a week for the 2021-22 school year. Safety measures include vaccination, masking, hygiene, ventilation, and cleaning. We understand that we will still be living with COVID-19 and that extenuating circumstances, including Department of Health-ordered quarantines, may dictate temporary class or individual pivots to GDS Virtual Campus.
