Dear Families, GGUSD is proud to provide breakfast and lunch meals free of charge for all GGUSD students regardless of family income. This is the third year that GGUSD has had the opportunity to participate in the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) which allows the district to serve meals at no cost to all students! In order for the district to continue participating in this program, parents and guardians must submit the School Funding Data Collection Form. This information allows the district to receive increased state funding for educational purposes that directly benefit our schools and students. The information will not be shared or utilized for any other purpose. Regardless of income level, every household must complete this form no later than September 30th to ensure the district retains state and federal funding. The fastest and easiest way is to complete the form online at https://ggusd.us/datacollectionform Only one form per household is needed. Paper copies of the form are also available in the Food Services Office at 10331 Stanford Avenue, Building B, Garden Grove, and at your child’s school office. Students with free and reduced eligibility status may qualify for other discounts based on household income level including discounts on internet access, college application fees, SAT/ACT/AP testing fees, and utility bills. An income eligibility letter can be provided by Food Services upon request to access these discounts for those who qualify. Our GGUSD Food Services staff is looking forward to serving free, healthy meals to all students!
Dear GGUSD Families, As we prepare for the start of the 2022-23 school year beginning on August 15, we wanted to share important information about what GGUSD and our schools are continuing to do to address COVID-19 on our campuses. In accordance with CDPH Guidance for K-12 schools , we will continue our current health and safety mitigation strategies, some of which include: Enhanced ventilation throughout our schools Cleaning and disinfecting protocols Handwashing and/or hand sanitizing stations Strict reporting guidelines In addition, we will continue to provide community notifications of confirmed positive COVID-19 cases and track this information on our COVID-19 Dashboard . We will provide at-home test kits to students and staff upon request. Testing is recommended for those who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and 3-5 days following a COVID-19 exposure. As a reminder, while masks are not required, anyone who wishes to wear a mask may do so at any time. Families should keep their children home from school when sick. If your child is confirmed positive for COVID-19, please contact the school office to report the case and confirm whether or not your child was at school during his/her infectious period. This allows us to provide you with instructions regarding when your child can return to school, and helps us track all cases and provide our school communities with appropriate notifications and guidelines to follow.

With these ongoing health and safety measures in place, we are excited to have all our students, staff and parents back with us as we start the 2022-23 school year. Thank you for your partnership and we look forward to a wonderful year.
