We look forward to providing quality programming for students as an after-school option. Students will follow physical distancing protocols, and staff continues to follow all recommended guidelines under the school Re-Entry Plan.
Will COVID-19 precautions apply during Enrichment Classes?
The only offerings in-person are private lessons. Siblings can attend together, if interested. Any indoor spaces used are measured and marked for appropriate 6-foot distancing capacity. All other precautions will apply as outlined in the GDS Re-Entry Plan, including wearing face coverings, hand washing, and frequent sanitizing.

Families will receive a credit to their child’s student account for the weeks we are not on campus.
