March 14, 2020 GPSD
Community and Stakeholders,
As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and our district’s best response to it, the GPSD Board of Trustees have made the decision to extend Spring Break through March 20, 2020.
Earlier this week, the guidance we received had no recommendations for school closings, however, the recent guidance (Governor Tate Reeves) has now changed as the urgency of slowing the spread of COVID-19 increases. In a situation such as this, I ask that you support us as we work through this fluid process with guidance expected to be updated on a daily basis.
Please know that we will work diligently to make the best possible decisions for our students, staff and community members. District and School administrators will meet on Monday, March 16, 2020 to work on plans for providing off-site instructional support for students and collaborate with teachers as needed.
Please follow us on Facebook and visit the GPSD website for continuous updates regarding next steps. Thanks for all you do to support #TeamGPSD!! Summary Points • No school next week (March 16-20, 2020)
• All athletic/extracurricular competitions and practices will be cancelled during the week of March 16-20, 2020
• We will continue to keep you updated via social media, the district website, and through our robocall system.
GPSD Interim Superintendent Dr. Debra Dace
Safety + Supervision + Scores = Student Success
