We ask that students consistently attend classes in the format they selected—either in person or remote. The primary reasons for this are:
In-person learners are expected to take quizzes and tests in person. Students who will not be on campus for a test or quiz should contact the teacher to discuss options to make up the test or quiz.
The following are student requirements and expectations for attending every Zoom class:
Aside from encouraging families to use the wide-spread testing available in Pima County should they feel unwell or learn they were exposed to someone who tested positive, we also expect our families* to follow these best practices regarding travel:
If you travel, you have two options*: a full quarantine with no symptoms, or a shorter quarantine period with a negative test and no symptoms. For details, please see this document from the Pima County Health Department and the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health.
*Members of our school community who have been fully vaccinated will not be required to quarantine upon return from any travel within the U.S. per CDC guidelines.
We are making extensive efforts to keep our campus community as safe as possible, and have implemented the following precautions and requirements:
Yes. The school year will be adjusted accordingly. Spring semester final exams and assessments will end on May 27, 2021. 5th Grade promotion will take place on May 27.

Faculty Google Classroom standards for 2020-2021 academic year are as follows:
School-wide updates and announcements will be sent to all families by email. Where applicable, these FAQs and our web page will be updated as well and, again where applicable, announcements may appear on The Gregory School Facebook and Instagram pages. However, families should rely on email foremost for initial information.
Information about specific classes will be posted in Google Classroom and, depending on the announcement, will be emailed to families from teachers.
We can waive physicals for all students with the exception of Upper School students who plan to participate in a school sport, because physicals are required by the AIA. However, all students registered at TGS MUST have immunizations up to date.
Generally speaking, visitors will not be permitted on campus, and as much business as possible will be conducted via email and online meetings. Family members and other visitors with school business that must be conducted in person will be required to make an appointment and wear a mask.
We are moving forward with competition for our Upper School spring sports. While Middle School sports will not compete, we are offering a basketball training program for Middle School students outside after school three days per week.
