Nearly two weeks ago, Greenfield Jr. High made national news after a student who attended the first day of school received notice of a positive COVID test on that same day.
The school system followed the planned protocol as set forth by the Hancock County Health Department and parents of students who had potential exposure we notified.
On Thursday, August 13th, Greenfield-Central Community School Corporation, Superintendent, Dr. Harold E. Olin sent home a letter informing parents that beginning on Monday, the High School would adopt a hybrid model for the first quarter of the school year. This would decrease daily student population by 50%, which allows for a better opportunity for social distancing.
At this time there has not been any announcements regarding the Jr. High or Elementary schools.
Student groups will be decided based on the first letter of their last name, however blended households can request their children attend on the same day. The daily schedule is set through October 2nd with students attending 2 days on campus and then 2 days off campus. Fall break for Greenfield Schools occurs October 5 – 16, 2020.
