Due to the rapidly changing COVID-19 outbreak, the Guam Department of Education has canceled its classes for the rest of the school year.

According to a JIC release, GDOE Superintendent Jon Fernandez’s decision to close schools and cancel classes follows Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero’s recent executive order to extend the islandwide closure of government facilities and schools until May 5 to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The school year was originally set to end on May 28th.

Even though all campuses will be closed, GDOE teachers will still provide distance learning until May 22nd, the last day of classes.

High school seniors who want to know about their graduation status are advised to contact their schools directly.

Instructions on how to contact each high school will be provided on the GDOE distance learning website later this week.

Information about issues regarding grading, promotion, and the graduation of students will be forthcoming.
