For the start of the 2021-22 school year, GDS is prioritizing virtual or outdoor assemblies in the LMS while COVID cases in the region are high. In the High School, assemblies may take place indoors when masked and when a minimum of 3' distancing is possible between students. For the start of the school year, High School students will meet either by class or by advisory for assemblies, rather than as an entire High School, with a maximum of two grades in a space at a time (or no more than half the high school).
