As you may know, Governor Gavin Newsom released mandated guidelines for schools as we continue to navigate through the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the requirements for schools to reopen their campuses is that the county in which they are located must be off the state's monitoring list for two weeks. Unfortunately, Kern County has been placed back on the list. Therefore, in compliance with Governor Newsom's mandate, we cannot reopen campus by the first day of school as planned, as of now. However, the Diocese of Fresno has applied for a waiver that would allow our school to open earlier, if approved. We are deeply disappointed we will not be able to see our students in person yet, but we want to assure you that as soon as we can open campus, we are ready.

While our physical campus is closed, we do have an extensive plan to continue our high-quality education through online class instruction, thanks, in part, to our 1:1: iPad technology. Our teachers will use the ZOOM app to teach lessons virtually and all class materials will be uploaded on iTunes U. Each student’s iPad will become their virtual classroom and we will continue to follow the regular block schedule.
Teacher ZOOM IDs can be found on your FACTS account under Resource Documents.
Meetings with Garces Faculty and Staff
We will be utilizing Zoom for all meetings with Garces staff, faculty members and parents. You will need to email meeting requests to counselors, teachers and administrators and a Zoom meeting will be scheduled. Staff emails can be found here.
