Thursday last day of school for USD 457

The last day of school for Garden City Public Schools will be Thursday.  The district will be wrapping up the continuous leaning plan that was started on March 30 due to the Governor’s order to close school facilities in the state for the rest of the 2019-20 school year.  The order was to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the state.


The district will be collecting iPads from students in second through 11th grades starting on Wednesday and will run through Friday.  Each building will have a designated route for parents to drive to drop-off the devices.  When parents arrive at the school with the iPad they will need to give their student’s name to start the process.  Parents will show the staff the iPad and will also provide the passcode to the device.  Parents will drop the iPad into a plastic bag.  The parent will then drop the charger to the device in the appropriate labeled box (second to fourth and seventh to eighth).  Parents will then drop the cable to the device in a different box (second to fourth and seventh to eighth).


School will be out for the summer break. School is scheduled to back in session on Aug. 10, with a half-day orientation for students in kindergarten through fifth grade, seventh-grade, ninth and tenth grades and all students new to Garden City Public Schools.  The first full day of school will be Aug. 11.  All classes will be in session for the start of the 2020-21 school year on that day.
