COVID-19 positive data reported on this site includes students and staff in the district. These cases have been validated by Monroe County Health Department.
Gates Chili is one many districts in Monroe County, that must begin to randomly test 20% of all hybrid in-person staff and students in order to continue in-person instruction. We estimate the district will need to test approximately 500 staff and students each week while we are under the yellow zone designation.
Ambassadors will review the preliminary 2021-22 budget as developed by the administration within parameters established by the Board of Education, and recommend to the BOE any modifications they would like to see.
With face masks and costume masks galore, the annual event moved outdoors to the GCHS parking lot on Oct. 29. Dozens of seniors arrived as early as 6:15 a.m. to show off epic costumes for a costume contest, eat breakfast served on the Spartan Eats bus, stay warm by fire pits and make memories as a class. It was the first time this year they've been able to gather as a class.
Research shows that resilience, self-regulation and healthy relationships have the power to insulate children against adversity and help them to better handle life’s ups and downs. Taking this into consideration, teachers throughout the district are focused on building trust and relationships through community circles.
