GS Connects: Distance Learning at Greenfield
Greenfield’s remote supported distance learning is in session! Our mission continues to be the development of the total student, whatever the times may bring, through actively engaging students, encouraging the discovery of new skills and applied knowledge, and a supportive environment for students, teachers, and parents.
Distance learning at Greenfield provides a collaborative, connective platform designed for learning continuity and the meeting of curriculum goals delivered to our students by our faculty each day. A typical school day includes both learning through virtual class and small-group collaboration as well as learning through teacher-guided, independent study using a dynamic collection of available resources. We follow a tailored curriculum and build community together.
GS Connects remote distance learning environment is one of patience, flexibility, and understanding. Each classroom teacher will share details on expectations, grading, and assessments.
Community is of utmost importance! We look forward to continuing to connect through our weekly newsletter, Knightline, interactive fun on social media, and continue to foster the relationships between classmates, students, teachers, and staff.
Greenfield Families, share your remote learning journeys and discoveries by email share your experience or using hashtag #GSConnects. We're excited to celebrate our Knights as they grow, connect, and discover!
Remote Distance Learning for COVID-19In the interest of supporting the health and safety of our community, Greenfield has transitioned to a temporary remote distance learning period. While we are missing our in-person connections and wishing we could give our students a warm welcome back to campus, this unprecedented time has also provided unique opportunities to demonstrate the strength of our school community as well as the capability of our faculty, staff and students to sustain the dynamic distance learning environment.
We remain committed to our mission of developing the total student,academically through a balanced challenging college preparatory program, socially through leadership opportunities, extracurricular activities and community service, aesthetically through a program of fine arts, physically through interscholastic athletics and a physical education program, and morally through affirmation of honesty, integrity, responsibility, tolerance and the American ideals of freedom and democracy. To our current students and families, know that you are loved and greatly missed on campus.

Choose a space that presents a limited number of distractions and remove elements that could impeded the work process (young siblings, cell phones, television, etc).
Be sure that a flat surface such as a table or desk is part of the space. Working in bed or on the couch will not work long-term.
Students should be under the supervision of a parent or adult when working online.
Keep the space well-supplied with necessary materials- pens, pencils, highlighter, etc.
