Dear GSC Community,

Please be aware of our school's COVID policy for returning to in-person learning. If you have not already done so, please fill out the waiver (https://mcusercontent.com/e2ed2d640c9120e288a86b508/files/f4f7dc60-4264-85cf-ad03-18bb0f884237/Waiver.pdf)and bring it to school on the first day or send a scanned copy either to your teacher or to principal@germanschoolct.org. This is a one time requirement.

Please make sure to fill out the attached Health Screening Form every Saturday for anybody who wants to enter the school building. https://mcusercontent.com/e2ed2d640c9120e288a86b508/files/70c2b226-e6c7-c04d-0af0-81ae39985bf1/Health_Screening_Form.pdf

If you have to answer one of the questions with yes, please bring along a negative PCR test no older than 5 days and you or your child can still enter the building.

If you or your child suffers from seasonal allergies, please bring along a doctor’s note.

After traveling either domestically (outside of the Tri-State area) or internationally, please obtain a negative PCR test 3-5 days after you return and bring it to school along with your Health Screening Form.

As a Saturday School we cannot guarantee cohorts, therefore it is very important to adhere to all the safety measures that we have put in place. Thank you for keeping our community safe and our school open:

  • Health Screening Form
  • Mandatory Mask Mandate
  • Social Distancing
  • Ventilation and Filtration
  • Staggered Breaks and Restroom Usage

As a general principle, we will act in accordance with guidance from the CDC, the State of Connecticut, the individual school districts, and our landlords.

We like to share also our Covid 19 presentations for Stamford and West Hartford which were shared with parents during our orientation zoom calls:

Dear GSC Students, Parents and Community,

Stamford/West Hartford, January 21st, 2021:

Welcome to 2021.  This Saturday will be our last day of the fall semester. Please register for the spring semester if you have not done as it will help us organize your and your child(rens) classes. https://www.leagueathletics.com/Registration/?n=&org=germanschoolct.org&cat=ALL

This Saturday at 12:00 pm, we invite all of our Members to attend the Annual Members Meeting. If you cannot attend online via BlueJeans, please email in your proxy.  Detailed information has been communicated through our teachers and registrars.

We have planned a special treat for our youngest students,.   Ms. Barbara from the German Speaking Galli Theater of New York will host a theater workshop including movement and story time. She is planning to present Snow White “Schneewittchen” to our students.

Standardized tests are in full swing. This week and last, classes have been participating in the AATG Level 2, 3 and 4 at our campuses in West Hartford and Stamford. We are happy to report that most of testing has gone smoothly despite the new online format.  We want to wish all students that are schedule to take the AATGs over the next two Saturday best of success.

Keep your fingers crossed for our DSD 2 Candidates who are taking the oral part of this extremely challenging test this Saturday in White Plains. They have been working for months preparing for both written and oral. The written part of the exam was given in December, and the oral exam.

Despite all the time consuming challenges of online teaching, our teachers have been making time to further their own education by participating in the GLSC sponsored education series focusing on best practice and innovate teaching ideas related to online teaching. They are truly committed to their students and the teaching of the German language and culture.  

 Warmest regards,

The Administration of GSC
