As summer begins, we are thinking ahead to the start of the new school year (August 30th) when all students return to in-person learning, including our new students. It's always exciting and fun getting to know our newest students and their families. It's also very important to have all of the information we need to ensure that each student is served in the best way possible.
With the Centers for Disease Control lowering the age of people who can receive the Covid 19 vaccine to 12 years of age, many GLCPS students are now eligible to receive the vaccine. There are several clinics being held daily in New Bedford.

GLCPS was preparing to begin the transition to Hybrid Learning at the beginning of April but the mandate by Education Commissioner Jeffrey Riley announced on March 10th has resulted in a change of plans. Instead, the school will begin in-school learning for all students.

GLCPS and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fall River have agreed on a 25-year lease that expands the current school's footprint to allow the middle and high school to thrive under one roof - almost.

GLCPS will return to in-person learning on April 5, 2021 with the launch of the school's Hybrid Learning Plan.
