Girls Athletic Leadership School Las Vegas (GALS LV) is an all-girls middle school serving grades 6th and 7th in the 2020-2021 school year and 8th grade in the 2021-2022 school year. We provide a safe environment for adolescent girls to receive a college preparatory education that is tailored to their needs. At GALS we empower girls to succeed academically, lead confidently, live boldly and thrive physically.
Attending GALS during COVID-19 conditions
GALS LV provides a safe, supportive and rigorous education during these very uncertain times. Our students, whether attending on-line or in-person, are thriving in our teacher led instruction and engaging classroom environment. In accordance with directives from the State Public Charter Authority, GALS, in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club, provides families with two options for school during COVID restrictions:
- Option 1: 100% Online: Students complete their schoolwork from home. The school day is from 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and they will participate in six on-line classes, 5 days a week with their classmates. Frequent breaks and opportunities for movement will be given during the day.
- Option 2: Boys and Girls Club In-person: Students complete their schoolwork at the Boys and Girls Club from 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. They attend classes with their on-line classmates under the supervision of the Boys and Girls Club and GALS staff. Boys and Girls Club staff will lead movement activities during break periods. Families selecting this option will be enrolled in the Boys and Girls Club at no charge during the COVID period. This option is available on a first come first serve basis until capacity is reached.
Families may move back and forth between these options with notification to the school. If in-person capacity is reached, students will be placed on a wait list and families notified when a seat becomes available.
The Boys and Girls Club will continue to provide after school care until 7 p.m. Students have opportunities to participate in art, robotics, fun games and exercise after school. Currently, due to COVID risks, the Club is only operating with GALS students and GALS In-Training students.
Anyone entering the Club is required to wear masks and practice social distancing of 6 feet. Hourly and daily deep cleaning occur at the Club.
Thank you for adapting with us to these changing times and know that the safety and development of your children remain our absolute top priorities.
