Dear Parents:

The attached link was created in part by Maricopa County Health Department January 22, 2015 to inform the general public about a confirmed Measles case here in Arizona. Measles are extremely contagious and would like everyone to be alert for anyone with the symptoms of the disease. They also provided guidance regarding vaccination and immunity. Please take a few minutes to read the information in the notice.

Gilbert Public Schools take the health of our students, staff and community very seriously. Health Services Department staff will be alert for individuals exhibiting rash and fever that may possibly be ill with a contagious disease like Measles.

Please contact your campus nurse or the Maricopa County Health Department for any further information or with questions and concerns.

Swearing-In Day for GPS Board Members
Newly elected board member Charles Santa Cruz and re-elected board member Jill Humpherys have taken their oath of office.   

Outstanding Recognition!   Congrats to Burk Elementary, Patterson Elementary, Pioneer Elementary, Superstition Springs Elementary.  
Mr. Brad Paes and his Burk team presented at the Arizona’s Rising Stars Mega Conference in Tucson on Tuesday, November 18. The title of their presentation was, "All Students Can Learn...Everyday!" Burk was chosen to present because of the outstanding achievements they've accomplished as a Title I School, as well as receiving an "A" rating 3 years in a row. During 2011-2012, Burk partnered with the Beat The Odds Program. They embraced “The Six Keys To Success” and devised an Action Plan to be an “A” school in order to ensure student achievement for all. They embrace the notion that all students can learn and be successful students! They were honored to share their Mission and Goals with the entire State of Arizona!

Helping The Hungry 
Desert Ridge Junior High Students, Staff and families donated a massive amount of food today to the United Food Bank.  This is the 13th year the school has made such an awesome contribution.  They are hoping to break last year's record of more than 36,000 pounds of food!  A mountain of rice bags, barrels and barrels of canned goods, and cases of water lined the hallway today, ready to be loaded onto the Food Bank semi-trailer.  Students brought their muscle to help load the enormous boxes.  

We are currently making exciting changes to our District website.  We do apologize for any delays while you are "surfing" our site and appreciate your patience while we clean up and enhance things for you!
