COVID-19 Information:

If your child is home sick or is a close contact, we have asked teachers to continue to have their live classes in google meet, when possible.  Make sure your child logs in from home for each class, according to their schedule. Some classes may just have simple instructions for the assignment, while others may be live for the whole period.  

Please remind your child the importance of washing hands and wearing a mask over his/her mouth and nose while at school.  We want to keep everyone safe and healthy.

If someone in your home is waiting for COVID test results, call our office and keep your child home until the results come back.

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
  • Runny nose
  • Congestion
  • Cough or shortness of breath (especially new onset, uncontrolled cough)
  • Diarrhea, nausea, 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.
