Starting School 2020

While our school experiences look and feel differently this year, our teachers and school leaders will engage our students in rigorous learning, build and sustain meaningful teacher/student relationships, and keep children and families connected to their schools even, at times, from a safe distance.

#457Strong: A Vision for Growth, Success, and Safety for All

 Interested in learning what criteria Garden City Public Schools will use to determine District and School operating levels?

The Finney County Health Department has been working closely with USD 457 and USD 363 since early July to come up with a Gating Criteria for Finney County schools.  These administrative guidelines along with weekly collaborative discussions will be used to determine classroom, school and district operational levels. The criteria in the document is subject to change as more scientific data and evidence becomes available.

With conditions changing by the day, our 2020-21 school calendar is designed with three different scheduling options based on potential COVID-19 infection rates in Garden City. We will work closely with the Finney County Health Department and district leaders to make decisions about changes in our schedule across the year. 



Level 5 - Hybrid Learning

To ensure that our students, teachers, staff, and community members stay safe and healthy, the need may arise to switch to Level 5 or Hybrid learning.  During Hybrid Learning only half of the student population will be completing On-Site Learning while the other half will complete learning Remotely.  This will allow students to effectively social distance.  Should the district move to Level 5 Hybrid Learning your students will attend school in the following groups:
