Campus Update July 10, 2020

School Year 2020-2021
Governor DeWine’s office has issued his Back-to-School Guidelines for reopening schools this fall. Gilmour is in full compliance with these recommendations and has put in place additional measures that will further maximize health and safety. Read Head of School Kathy Kenny's July 7 Campus Update email for details.
2020 Commencement—Canceled
July 9: With heavy hearts we share the cancellation of Gilmour’s August 1-2 Commencement ceremony. Given Cuyahoga County’s recent designation as one of seven counties in the state with a Red Alert Level 3 status, Gilmour would not be able to receive an endorsement from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health to gather as a large group on campus.
Gilmour Academy is opening our athletic facilities to our GA student-athletes for Return to Play Phase 2 on Monday, July 13. Read Athletic Director Sean O'Toole's July 10 Return to Play email for details on all Phase 2 protocols.
