GCSSD Statement Regarding Junior/Senior Prom For 2021 As a district, we take a great deal of pride in being able to provide extracurricular activities and opportunities that our students can look back upon with fond memories of their high school years. Throughout this Covid pandemic, many difficult decisions have been made with regards to cancelling events or significantly changing the manner in which they are conducted. We do not take these decisions lightly and certainly realize the impact they have on our students. Our goal has always been to make the decisions with the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff as the primary factors in the decision making process. Presently, the Governor’s Executive Order #70 is still in effect which places limitations on social gatherings in Tennessee. Considering these things and the amount of time that it takes to coordinate and plan, the high schools in the Gibson County Special School District will not be sponsoring a Junior/Senior Prom this spring. This was not an easy decision or one that we take lightly but one that we feel is necessary at this time. Hopefully, we will be able to return to some sense of normalcy soon and be able to provide the opportunity to continue the traditions that our students and staff look forward to each year. As always, thanks for your understanding and support during this unprecedented and challenging time.
Tonight's game against Westview has been cancelled.
GCSSD will be closed tomorrow, Thursday 2/11, due to the potential for inclement weather. Central Office staff will work from home. Friday, 2/12, will be a normal off campus learning day for staff and students. Staff will be contacted tomorrow, 2/11, for directions on Friday work location.
All afterschool activities/athletics have been cancelled today due to the possibility of inclement weather moving through our area this afternoon.
