We Engage We Educate We Inspire

Hello Stallion Families,

The PTSO Check-A-Thon has been such a huge success we are extending it through Monday. Stiudents can still earn prizes. PTSO will be on campus Monday handing out prizes. We are thrilled and grateful for the support of our efforts to update the library and expand the collection of books available to students. Thank you all for supporting SRE PTSO!

As the weather turns warm again I wanted to remind everyone that students should bring a water bottle to school each day. They can be refilled throughout the day at our water bottle filling stations (a generous donation from the SRE PTSO!). The water fountains remain turned off inside, so it is important that students bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.

There has been no change to the GPS policy requiring face coverings at this time. Should that change we will of course notify the Ranch community.


PTSO has extended the deadline for the PTSO Check-A-Thon! If you'd like to donate to this fundraiser please go to their website at send a check or cash in the envelope to school on Monday

It remains important for all students to continue to wear a mask or face covering while at school. Please make sure your student has a spare mask in their backpack just in case. As a reminder, all adults visiting campus are required to wear a face covering as well. Thank you for consideration.

Do Not Come To School

I need to remind everyone that students should not come to school if they, or anyone in their household has tested positive for COVID. Students who are sick or feeling any COVID-like symptoms can’t be on campus.


Thank you for reading the Round-Up. As always, if you have any questions, please email me at and I will be in touch.

Be Safe!

Colin M. Kelly,


Lunch (and breakfast) is Free

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended free meals for children 18 years and younger until further notice to help ensure all children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gilbert Public Schools will provide combo meals at no cost to students for breakfast and lunch. A combo meal includes an entree, fruit and/or vegetable and beverage (milk and/or juice).

We certainly encourage our families to take advantage of this opportunity.
