This week, the Garden Grove Unified School District launched a new webpage, https://ggusd.us/covidresources, which is packed full of resources in three categories – academics, wellness, and community-based resources. The webpage is designed to be a one-stop-shop to support at-home learning for the district’s more than 41,000 students and their families.
The Academic Resources section includes learning packets by grade level, digital textbooks, and other tools to access virtual classrooms and support at-home learning. The Wellness Resources section includes information on supporting
students’ mental health and socio-emotional well-being, including useful tips on coping with coronavirus-related anxiety and a list of mental health related agencies. Community Resources includes free or low-cost services provided by community organizations, including help with access to free food, childcare, and internet services.
GGUSD schools continue to check out devices for students who need them, and community liaisons, school psychologists, and instructional aides have also been checking in on students. GGUSD is committed to expanding at-home learning and is working hard to keep families informed through ParentSquare and other digital resources. Families who need help navigating ParentSquare can visit https://ggusd.us/parentsquare.
The GGUSD serves most of Garden Grove as well as parts of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana and Westminster.
