  • IMPORTANT! School Reopening Update
    The following message went out via phone message from Superintendent Daniel Goffredo to all Great Valley families and staff on August 14, 2020:

    I am calling today with some very important information regarding recently released guidance from the Chester County Health Department. Today, the CCHD issued a recommendation that all Chester County schools begin their school year virtually and assess their ability to transition to a more in-person instructional model after October 9.

    The Great Valley School District will honor this recommendation, and therefore all students will begin virtual instruction on Monday, August 31. The hybrid model is no longer available to students for the start of the school year. Just to be clear, all students will be instructed virtually on August 31. Additional information will be emailed to families and staff next week. This message and previous communications are available on our website.

    I’d like to thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we do our best to navigate the pandemic and respond to the medical guidance provided to us. We will continue to monitor the conditions of our community and the county and provide updates to you. Additional details will be shared during our school board meeting on Monday, August 17, at 7:30 PM. Please use the link on our website to access the meeting. Thank you.
