Principal’s Update: January 11, 2021

I know the big question is, “What does next week’s schedule look like?”  Despite the change to red for our county, we had a quiet week last week, in terms of positive cases and contact tracing.  We are carefully watching the numbers this week for the state, county, and school. Ultimately, the decision of whether we default back to our regular schedule or remain in the hybrid schedule will depend on cases at GCJHS.  I expect to have this information no later Wednesday and I will send something out as soon as a decision is made.


Hybrid Calendar

Lunch Menu


  1. Weekly lesson plans posted by teachers.  

7th grade 

8th grade

Virtual School

  1. First semester report cards are now available in Powerschool.
  2. We are recognizing students who log in to every class from home and who complete all of their assignments on time during our hybrid schedule.  We had our first drawing for prizes on Friday and will do the same thing this week.  

Virtual School Information

The move to a hybrid schedule does not affect your child’s schedule.  Everything is status quo for virtual school students.

  1. If you are having technology trouble, email our tech team at [email protected] 
  2. All students should be logged into Google classroom every day.  We ask parents to check Powerschool and help to encourage your child to log in to Google Classroom daily, and complete all assigned work. Powerschool may not have an accurate schedule.  Here is the daily schedule for students.
  3. Families of Virtual Algebra students: please be watching for an email to register for second semester Algebra.

Upcoming Dates:

January 11-15: Hybrid Schedule

January 18: Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday- No School

COVID-19 Information:

The COVID-19 Screening for Parents provided by the Indiana State Department of Health lists the following symptoms that will result in a student being sent home, or signal for a parent to keep a student home:

Temperature of 100 or chills

Sore throat

Cough or shortness of breath (especially new onset, uncontrolled cough)

Diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, abdominal pain

Headache (particularly new onset of severe headache, especially with fever)

New loss of taste or smell

This list does not include all possible symptoms. Other symptoms

may be considered when determining when a student should stay home.

*If your child or someone in the household is waiting for test results, please do not send the children to school.

Should your student or someone in the household test positive for COVID-19, we ask that you notify us as soon as possible.

You may call the dedicated GC COVID-positive test result line at

(317) 477-4116 (this is a dedicated voicemail box and is not answered by school personnel) or email [email protected].

Please leave your student’s name, date of birth, date of test, and your

telephone number and email address. A GC nurse will be in contact with you as soon as possible following notification.

If you have a child who is quarantined (either as a close contact or someone who had the virus), please make sure they are engaging in their classes while they are gone. Everyone should log into their google classroom according to the daily schedule, when at home, unless they are too sick to work. 


We have multiple ways for you to obtain information regarding what’s happening at GCJHS.

Reminder about future school cancellations:  

In the event of a snow day or other school cancellation this year, we will continue to use the virtual learning model so that new instruction can be delivered and the year not be extended to make up for the missed day(s). Unlike with past snow days, we will be utilizing instruction which will mirror what we have been doing on Wednesdays during the Hybrid schedule. Students will be expected to log in for each class, according to their schedule.  See this document for the daily schedule and the guidelines.
