Gallup McKinley County Schools - ''Virtual Days''

Dear GMCS Parents, 

Gallup McKinley County Schools is adopting a new approach for student instruction when weather or other conditions would result in school cancellations. With students now having an individual computer device and schools having experience delivering remote instruction for students, we see an opportunity for GMCS to stop canceling school and have students continue to work on their school work from home on these Virtual Days. One of the positive results of this change is that students' instruction will continue on these days and learning will not be stopped or disrupted during the week. Another benefit is that GMCS will eliminate having to add makeup days to the end of the school calendar, which can often disrupt family and other summer plans. 
When school is canceled for students, the following will take place for Virtual Days

  1. The student will start school from home per the individual school's 2-hour delay start time.
  2. Students report to class from home on the Microsoft Teams platform or perform other schoolwork provided by the teacher(s) when internet is not available. Schools will be reaching out to you in the coming days to provide your student's online schedules for these virtual learning days.
  3.  Attendance will be taken for Virtual Days.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as our Gallup McKinley County Schools evolve to meet the needs of all our children and families. If you have further questions, please contact your school principal.
