Gem Prep: Nampa Reopening and COVID Response

Our Reopening Mission:

Gem Prep is deeply committed to the safety of our scholars and staff. Our mission is to protect the well-being of those we care about through appropriate planning and precautions. These measures are designed to balance the need for a consistent, rigorous education with the need for protecting the safety of Gem Prep scholars and staff.

Fall Reopening Information:
  • School will begin on August 17th for all Gem Prep students.
  • Due to the current category level of Red (3), Gem Prep: Nampa will start school ONLINE on August 17th for all scholars rather than on the hybrid schedule. This decision was made with the guidance of the local health district and Nampa School District.
  • We will continue with online learning until further notice.
  • Online learning will follow the school calendar that has been set in place for the year. Please keep a copy for your reference. GPN 2020-2021 School Calendar Students will be required to attend daily virtual lessons with their classroom teacher. Failure to attend and complete assigned tasks will result in unexcused absences on their attendance record. More information on your scholars classroom schedule will be shared as it is available.
  • Gem Prep will continue to communicate with parents via SchoolMint before school begins and will post ongoing communications to the website. Once school begins, Gem Prep will communicate using Class Dojo for elementary students and Remind for secondary students - instructions for connecting to these apps will be sent out at the beginning of school.
  • CDC and local district health guidelines for staff and student safety will be followed.
  • Our Gem Prep reopening plan will change over time as circumstances change or as additional information becomes available.
  • Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
