At its Monday, October 11, 2021 meeting, the GHC Governing Board approved a policy requiring an approved COVID-19 vaccination for all GHC students, age 12 and older. This policy ensures the safest learning environment for all students and aligns with local and state guidance and directives related to COVID-19 vaccination for all age-eligible students.
Medical Exemption Information
Parents/guardians may apply to seek a medical exemption. The medical exemption form (linked here) must be completed to apply for a medical exemption. If approved for a medical exemption, the student will be allowed on campus. Applications for medical exemptions must be submitted to the School by November 19, 2021 at HSCOVIDmedexemption@ghctk12.com for High School students and TK8COVIDmedexemption@ghctk12.com for TK-8 students. Please direct questions to the respective email addresses. The GHC policy does not allow for religious or personal belief exemptions.
Independent Study (IS) Not In-Person
Parents/guardians who wish for their student to be considered for Independent Study for the second semester must notify the School by November 19, 2021. Students in the Independent Study program do not need to meet the COVID-19 vaccination requirements and will not be permitted to access instruction or participate in any School activity or event on a GHC campus. Given enrollment capacity limitations for the GHC Independent Study program in both the TK-8 and High School programs, a lottery may be conducted.
Process for Meeting Mandatory Vaccination Requirement
All students eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine are required to submit proof of vaccination to the School in order to be on campus for in-person learning. Deadlines to submit proof of the first and second vaccination shots are November 19 and December 17, 2021 respectively. Vaccination proof is to be submitted to HSCovidVax@ghctk12.com for High School students or TK8CovidVax@ghctk12.com for TK-8 students.
