    GPPSS has developed a PLAN TO RETURN TO FACE TO FACE INSTRUCTION (updated 9/25) for those in the GP Traditional program, starting with students in Young Fives/Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. That plan has additional links embedded such as the matrix from the Health Department, the Governor's Roadmap, and the Wayne County Return to School Roadmap. For students with IEP’s, please refer to the link for the UPDATED SPECIAL EDUCATION RETURN PLAN 2020. Attached is a pdf in case you have any difficulty accessing the google file.
    Thursday, September 24, from 6-7:30 p.m., GPPSS hosted a virtual Town Hall specifically on this return to Face to Face (F2F) instruction. It was LIVESTREAMED and recorded for you to view at your convenience. After the presentation, QUESTIONS SUBMITTED THROUGH THIS GOOGLE FORM (open now) will be answered by GPPSS staff. Please use this form, and not email or social media for questions, so we have a record of what is asked.
    Input of staff and families will be incorporated into a proposal that will go before the Board of Education at their regular meeting, 7 p.m., Monday, September 28. That board meeting will also be livestreamed and recorded.

    Based on feedback from all stakeholders we have revised a significant aspect of the plan.  When students return via this plan they will join one of two cohorts attending in a more standardized two-week cycle as follows:

    • Cohort A will attend M-W-Th-M-Th
    • Cohort B will attend T-F-T-W-F

    This will still result in students attending for five days out of each ten day period, but by structuring the days this way families will have an easier time arranging regular child care and support for their kids on days their child is not attending school F2F.

    Please remember that at this time this plan is specific to Young Fives - 5th grade.
    Please note: OneGP Virtual students will remain in remote learning. We are emailing this information to all staff and families and it is posted here under the News section of the district website.
    Thank you for continuing to partner with us in your child's education.

    The district has developed a GPPSS Learning Plan in compliance with the Governor's Safe Schools Roadmap:

    • GP Traditional
    • OneGP Virtual
    • Hybrid

    Families within the Grosse Pointe Public School System are familiar with the GP Traditional experience. Families who elect to participate in face to face instruction will be in that environment with the additional precautions outlined in the Safety Plan. A high level overview of the safety plan (masks, handwashing, additional spacing) has been provided and the district will continue to release updated information based on CDC and Health Department guidelines, as well as answer questions and respond to feedback from staff and families. Here is the latest memo dated Spetember 16, 2020 regarding health department and school district guidance for increasing and decreasing intensity of in person instruction in Michigan School Districts.


    GPPSS Learning Formats

    As we started the school year, both GP Traditional remote and OneGP Virtual learning options for GPPSS students and families were designed to provide a more consistent, clear and robust experience than the one GPPSS students experienced in response to emergency building closures at the end of the 2019-20 school year.
