School Year 2021-2022 Reopening Plan

July 2, 2020


Thank you for your resilience and support throughout this unprecedented school year. We have experienced many successes and some challenges, and most importantly, we worked together to ensure our students were on track to meet their academic goals and felt supported through the process. 

GLI is planning for a return to full-time in-person learning in the fall. The first day of school will be August 23. Please view our calendar here. Protocols will be taken to make sure students and teams are safe. We’ll share more details over the summer with you about how these will be carried out on campus and in classrooms.

GLI will also be providing transportation from Altgeld Gardens to Longwood. Bus pickup and return times and location will be shared with families over the summer.

GLI students are not required to wear school uniform. Instead, students will be required to follow our dress code

We look forward to being reunited again and providing rich and engaging educational experiences for students as we start a new school year. Please have a safe and enjoyable summer and we look forward to seeing you in August.
