  • March 27 Community Letter from Supt. Hadden

    Although it’s only the second full week of our district’s extended closure, it certainly feels as though schools have been closed for much longer. While none of us could have predicted even a few weeks ago that we would launch this dramatic new transition in education, I could not be more proud of the way our educators have come together to ready themselves to teach your children from their own homes. In addition, I could not be more grateful to all of you for your faith in our educators, and all of the hardworking staff at GWL. This will not be perfect. Nothing can ever replace a talented teacher in a classroom. Every student should have already received a device on loan from the school or be using a device from home.READ MORE
