796
Beginning Monday morning around 10 a.m., schools and the GDOE headquarters in Tiyan began to experience phone issues, with many locations being unable to receive incoming phone calls.

The Guam Department of Education (GDOE) invites parents to attend online regional parent information sessions via Zoom video conferencing this week.

The parent information sessions provide an opportunity for GDOE leadership to provide more in-depth information to parents regarding the plans for the upcoming school year. The forum also provides an opportunity for parents to ask questions and seek clarification. Additionally, schools will be conducting outreach with parents at the school level prior to the first day of classes.

The scheduled time, date, and Zoom information for each informational meeting is as follows:

“Given the unprecedented changes our school system is facing this year, we are doing our best to keep the community informed through parent meetings, media interviews, and updates posted on the GDOE website,” GDOE Fernandez said. “We felt it important to schedule dedicated time to reach out to our parents to provide additional information regarding our plans, and we hope these sessions will help our families feel more prepared as they transition back to school this August.”

The Zoom meetings have the capacity to accommodate up to 500 participants. Those who wish to observe the meetings may also watch the livestream on the GDOE Facebook page. Those participating via Zoom are asked to mute their microphones when not speaking so that all participants are able to hear the presentation.
