In light of the current high volume of COVID notifications, and the significant impact this is having on our schools, parents and families will now be able to view information regarding potential exposure to COVID-19 in class and on school buses on our website. The goal is to provide easy access for our parents and families to up-to-date information while supporting our schools to educate and support our students.
Please review the information below regarding potential general exposure on school bus routes. The exposure date refers to the last time a positive student/staff member was on that route.
If you do not know your student's bus route information, this is available in Infinite Campus. Log in to your Infinite Campus (IC) Parent Portal, click 'More' on the menu on the left, click 'Transportation'.
Please note this information is being shared as a general notification for the bus route. If your student is required to quarantine, you will be contacted directly.
The information on these dashboards will be updated daily and each notification will remain on the dashboard for three days, allowing parents time to access the information.
If your child develops any of these symptoms, please see your healthcare provider and/or get tested:
- Sore Throat
Once your child is tested, they will need to stay home and wait for results. If you are not sure where to go to be tested, please visit the Maricopa County Department of Public Health website.
As we know, there is high transmission of COVID-19 circulating in our community, and it is important that we all continue to monitor for symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Gilbert Public Schools is committed to supporting our schools and students during this difficult time.
- Reminding staff and students to stay home when they are sick.
