Dear School Community,

Out of an abundance of caution, we are closing Garnet Valley High School tomorrow, Friday, March 13th for a deep cleaning. There will be no school or extracurricular activities for students on Friday and for the remainder of the weekend. Teachers and office staff are to work from home. Tonight we learned that one of our high school students was in proximity to an individual who tested positive for COVID 19. The high school administration is in communication with the family, and as of writing this email, I have a call and message into the PA Department of Health for further guidance.

As I've repeatedly stated, this situation is incredibly fluid, and I urge the school community to pay attention to their emails and check our website throughout the day tomorrow and for the rest of the weekend. As of tonight, our plan is to have a teacher inservice day on Monday, so there will be no school for all students grades K to 12.

I will also send a phone message in the morning, but I wanted to put out information tonight as well. I will be in touch with further information.

Dr. Marc Bertrando, Superintendent

GVPAA’s High School program presents Seussical the Musical, March 5th-7th!gvhs-seussical-gvpaa-tickets-salecindy-seussical-ghvs-gvpaa

Evening Performances @ 6:30pm
Matinee Performances @ 1:30pm

Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that lovingly brings to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Tickets available at the door and at www.gvpaa.org

The GVHS Hi-Q team competed on Friday January 10, 2020 against Bonner/Prendie and Springfield High Schools in their second meet.

In an article written by Delco Times, Peg DeGrassa, she notes, "The Jaguars are determined to stay in first place for the chance to host the Championship in March. The team answered every one of their questions correctly on the first try along with securing 11 bonus points from other team’s missed questions for a perfect contest. Although Garnet Valley accumulated points quickly, Springfield was able to add 33 points to their first round score. Bonner & Prendie High School’s audience enthusiastically cheered on the home team throughout the historic contest. Final Scores: Bonner & Prendie: 16; Garnet Valley: 75; Springfield: 33"

Garnet Valley finished the competition with the highest score in Delco Hi-Q history at 75 points. The previous record was held by Haverford at 72 points.

Read the original Delco Daily Times article here.

"We are so very proud of the team and their accomplishments! The students have worked so hard for the entire season!," says faculty advisor, Sandra Dubnansky.

The team's final meet of the regular season will take place at home on Friday, January 31, 2020 at 9:45 a.m. in the high school auditorium.
