Grand Peak Academy for tomorrow in person start, how do you expect to handle drop off in a matter of 15 minutes for students not to be late? I think this plan seems to be unrealistic. As drop off was hectic with no restrictions of drop off before 7:45.

Dear Grand Peak Families,
This evening D49 has chosen to start the school year online. At 3:30pm tomorrow, the Grand Peak Academy Board of Directors will meet to decide how our school will return to learning. Either way, we "return to school," Grand Peak's Streaming School will be a choice for your children. Our teachers and staff have been hard at work in their preparations for the last few weeks and they are so excited to get started. Please know that we will communicate the decision of our Board as soon as we can.

Please offer in person learning for those families that want their children to return to school. Children need to be back in school, learning and having time with their peers. There are schools that have already started their year in person, they haven't had an out break and all involved are seeing such wonderful benefits (staff, teachers and students).
I’m beyond frustrated! Why can’t the parents who decide to have their kids do in school learning let their kids do in school learning still!? I have a preschooler and a 1st grader and they need that physical teaching. My daughter learned nothing from a computer designed as a game last year for her remaining months in kindergarten! She is so much more focused in a school classroom setting. And craves that routine she gets by going to in person learning! This online crap is going downhill fast and will cause my children to fall behind academically and I feel like I don’t even get a say in this! 🤬🤬
Totally behind the district with having a start at home and will be behind GPA as well. We're not going to school in person until there is a vaccine.
What is another option besides online when parents both work full time??! Not every parent can stay home and homeschool their children.
Why has Grand Peak Academy decided to stop caring for the landscape, it's almost all dead and looks terrible.
Praying GPA opens next week. My kindergartener needs school. He has been looking forward to kindergarten for two years now. 😞
Another thought. Is there a Para or EA that isnt working while online learning is going on that would be able to facilitate for families?
WOW! This present situation educators and parents are dealing with, not to mention the students, is unprecedented. I'm reading these comments and I can sympathize with the parents. I'm praying for all of you, for a safe and prosperous school year.
I'm frustrated and hope we can still have an option to start in person.
GPA- if you stay open think about enrollment too. D20 is in person and we’d consider trying to get in over there.
Please continue to offer in person! Think about all the hidden issues online school will create. This solution is becoming more dangerous than the virus.
Does anyone know when the board is planning to make the announcement?
My daughter started preschool yesterday at Grand Peak and is over the moon! She is so happy to be in school and so happy to see classmates and have new friends! 💞😊
Please decide to allow in person teaching for all of us parents who stated that we wanted in person learning!
I thought at the last board meeting it was voted to stick with whatever D49 did?
Does this apply to the Pre-K too or just K and above?
I would love to see in person offered as well!
Thank you! Are the GPA board meetings available to watch / stream online?
Email the board members like I did. Their emails are on the grand peak app.
Is there going to be a better plan for middle schoolers? D49 just stated they'd start later in the semester.
My son started preschool yesterday at GPA. I wish that all of you could have seen the turnout. Everyone lined up outside the building and when the teachers opened the doors everyone clapped and cheered. It was a great moment! I wish the board would have been there to see this. The kids need in person learning right now. It is time.
So all of the kids are going to be doing online when school starts is that correct?
520p on Friday and still no hard schedule for Middle schoolers. PowerSchool doesn’t tell you times for anything. What is going on?
