• Snow/
  • Emergency Policy

When there is a possibility of severely inclement weather or other emergency situation during the 2021–22 school year:

  • Weather-related school status will be posted at www.GDS.org and sent via email and text to all parents, high school students, and faculty and staff by 6:30 a.m.

  • We may have two-hour delays. In these cases, the High School will share the edited day’s schedule with students and faculty; the Lower and Middle Schools will not shift their schedule. There will be no before-school programming unless otherwise noted.

  • We may close early for inclement weather conditions. The school will stay open until all children are picked up/transported home.

  • Should conditions allow, GDS will have two snow days with no school in 2021–22. Should we have more than two snow days, whether consecutive or interrupted, we will transition to a form of GDS Virtual Campus, which will be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning.

  • Teachers/divisions will be in touch with schedules and encourage your children to have their devices with them when appropriate.
