Garden City Public Schools Parents and Families

We are sure you have many questions about what school will look like for your child for the remainder of the school year. Please be assured that the district and your child’s teacher(s) are working on ways for your child to have continuous learning.  The district will be posting updates on the website and social media sites. If you have any trouble finding any of these, call your child’s school for more information.

What you can expect for the week of March 23 - 27:

All Garden City Public Schools students will have an extra week of Spring Break this week, March 23 - 27.

Daily breakfasts and lunches for children 18 and under will be provided from 10:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. at 16 designated school locations.  There will be nine locations in the community with various times for grab-and-go meals.  Children must be present to pick up the meals.  More information is at

Starting on Monday, parents will receive a phone call from your child's teacher.  Your child’s teacher will attempt to make contact with you in regards to a short survey. They need to ask you a few questions to help us move forward on the new way we will instruct students.  They also want to check to see that you and your child(ren) are okay. If you have changed your phone number or email this school year please call your child’s school office so that they can get those updates made.  It is very important that we are able to communicate with you during this time and for the rest of the school year. 

Teachers will start to prepare remote learning activities for students for the following week.  Teachers will also be setting daily “office hours” this week in which they can be available to answer questions from parents or students on the remote learning activities that they will receive. 

The district would like to remind the community that during this time all school facilities, including playground equipment are closed to the public.  All families are asked to honor social distancing and refrain from congregating. 

We know that there are many challenges that we will all need to overcome, but our district staff and our community will all pull together to do what’s best for our kids.  Our great staff will do everything in their power to help our families get through this unprecedented event in our community.  

Please keep informed by following the District website (www.gckschools.com) or social media accounts.
