Return to Campus Update


It has been over 11 months since our campuses were closed for in-person learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of this communication is to provide you with important updates on our progress to serve some students on campus and the safety measures we have in place. Our top priority for a return to campus for some form of in-person learning remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families.


Although our campuses remain closed for Full In-Person (100 percent of students on campus) and Hybrid Learning (up to 50 percent of students on campus) Models, GHC continues to serve small groups of students on campus under our Small Cohort Learning Model that was approved last October by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. The Small Cohort Learning Model allows GHC to serve up to 25 percent of our students on campus. 


Beginning in November 2020, small groups of TK-12 students began accessing in-person support on campus for one or more days per week. And although the Small Cohort Learning Model was paused in early December given the spike in COVID-19 numbers and remained on pause after our return from Winter Break, in late January small groups of TK-12 students began returning to campus for in-person learning support. The number of students on campus has gradually increased in the last three weeks, and we will continue to expand offerings as local public health conditions and GHC safety standards permit.


Our COVID-19 Safety Plan for Eventual Campus Reopening provides important details about the many measures and protocols we are implementing in order to ensure a safe learning environment on campus for GHC students and staff. Please which includes a summary of actions the School has taken for a return to campus learning.
