Principal's Message

Campo Family,

District is working on the creation of an 'online hub' that will include all the information our parents and families will need to make informed decisions regarding the return to school on August 5.

In the meantime, they have created a new web page that went live yesterday as a resource for our community members that have questions regarding our planning for the reopening of schools and the work of the Task Force.

Please let me know of any questions that you think should be added to this page.

Thank you and stay well.

from our superintendent


Dear Gilbert Public Schools Parents and Families,

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and opinions via our recent ‘GPS Return to School Survey’. The responses are now being shared with our Task Force planning committees to be included in the planning process.

A comprehensive plan for reopening schools will be presented to our Governing Board later this month. In the meantime, we would like to inform our community of some key measures we are already taking, and are currently reviewing. All decisions and actions are designed to promote a positive beginning to the school year, including:

  • A safe and supported return to our school campuses.
  • An online learning option (K-12) for students unable to attend school on campus.
  • Measures to promote the health and social-emotional well-being of our students, staff, and families.

Below are a number of actions we are already taking on our campuses:

  • Installation of hand sanitizer stations in every school.
  • Staff training on health and safety protocols.
  • Deep cleaning and regular disinfection of high touch surfaces.
  • Signage posted throughout campuses with health and safety reminders.
  • Limiting the number of volunteers and visitors on campus.
  • Developing and implementing communication protocols regarding COVID-19 cases, should this be needed.
  • Learning supports in place to meet the needs of all GPS students.
  • Parents responsible for determining their child’s health status before arriving at school, and for keeping their child home should they present with symptoms.
  • Nurses and Health Assistants will continue to provide support on every campus.
  • Transportation will continue to operate.

There are also a number of measures that our planning committees are actively reviewing:

  • Limiting access to shared areas on campus.
  • Option for students to wear a mask but not required.
  • Health screening protocols for students and employees.

Please be assured that we will be in frequent communication with you throughout the summer to ensure that you have all the information you need, as soon as possible, to support a positive return to our school campuses on August 5, 2020.

As we all know, COVID-19 and the guidelines in place, at a state and national level, are fluid. We will continue to be in contact with the appropriate authorities and agencies to ensure that we have the most up to date information to inform our decision making. Our goal remains to continue to educate all of our students to a high standard while promoting health, safety, and emotional well-being for our students, staff, and the wider community.

Thank you all for your continued support of Gilbert Public Schools.

Just a few Friendly Reminders……..

Summer checkups are a great time to check and see if your student should require needed vaccines required to attend school. Make sure to get updated documentation to being to the health office at the start of the school year.

Please be aware that students are not allowed to carry medication with them at school unless the use of any of the following medications are required: epi pens, inhalers, and diabetic emergency medications. However, these items must FIRST be checked in and accompanied by the appropriate forms from the Health Office. Please ensure that any medications your child needs during the school day is brought in by a parent/guardian or another adult over the age of 18. Please do not send your child to school with medications to either self- administer, except for the above-mentioned medications, or to deliver to the health office. All medications will be in a properly labeled container from either the pharmacy for prescription medication or in the original container for over the counter medication. Make sure to check expiration dates. Please note that narcotic pain medication will not be administered at school.

If a medication needs to be administered daily or is a prescription medication, a “Request for School Administration of Medication” form must be completed by both the parent/guardian and doctor (dated after 7/01/2020) before the medication may be administered at school. This includes any over the counter medication that indicates it is not to be given to anyone under the age of 18, usually medication containing aspirin (example: Excedrin). This form is available on the GPS website or from the CVHS Health Office after 07/30/2019. Please contact the Health Office for any questions after 07/30/20. Thank you and have a safe and enjoyable summer!

Hello to all of our CV Physical Education Students. We hope you are staying healthy and active during this time. Research suggests that exercise and activity are closely related to levels of happiness (the more you exercise the happier you are).


Remember to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night and the BEST (deepest best sleep) hours occur between 10pm-2am so be sure to get your rest and do your best to get to sleep at a reasonable time. Some sleep habit reminders...... shower first, clean comfortable pajamas, brush and floss, dark room, cool temperature, and put ELECTRONICS in another room!


This time out of school will present each of us with multiple opportunities to become the best person we can be. Try to focus on positive activities such as reading, getting outdoors, and exercising.


Be sure to surround yourself with positive and high achieving people that help you to be your best and make you feel good about who you are.

JOIN US (CV PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT) on Instagram (Cv_PE2020) to see videos of all of us staying active and healthy. Follow us on TWITTER as well @CampoStrength as we are posting a lot of great workouts and ways to stay active and healthy!


A Message from Coach Cornell

TIPS FOR WELLNESS...(Especially during these stressful times).......

1). MOVE "every day"! ( be sure to get outside and be active) You will feel so much better!
2). Increase your FRUIT & VEGETABLE intake (vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, essentials).
3). CREATE A DAILY ROUTINE (healthy habits, eating schedule, limit snacking, healthy eating).
a). Good sleep habits (relaxing before bed): cut off screen time 1 hour before, clean sheets,
comfortable PJ's, cool temperature in room, and most importantly relaxing thoughts.
Don't try to solve problems in your head.... if you think of something, let it move
will still be there for you to solve the next day.
b). Focus on your "CONTROLLABLES" or what you can control....let the other stuff go!
c). Limit screen time (you will be happier, have more energy, and feel better overall).
d). Don't Isolate yourself (communicate with others and reach out for help).
for all of your MANY blessings.


1. Stress affects EVERYONE!

-Some may cope more effectively and recover more quickly.

-Stress may be short term or occurrences that continue over time.

-3 Types of Stress: 1). ROUTINE STRESS (every day work, school. etc. 2). TRAUMATIC STRESS (accident, disaster, death, injury, etc) 3). SUDDEN CHANGE STRESS: Stress brought on by sudden negative change (job loss, divorce, illness)

2. Not all stress is bad!

-Can motivate people to perform at their best or "rise to the occasion" (high achieving people feel stress).

-Can be "life saving" in times of danger (brain more "wired in").

3. Long term stress can harm health

-Chronic / long term stress can damage the immune system, digestion, sleep, and reproductive issues.

-Headaches, sleeplessness, sadness, anger, irritable behavior.

-If Long term stress occurs heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and mental disorders can develop.


1. Recognize the signs of stress.

2. GET HELP! Talk to a health care provider.

3. Regular EXERCISE!

4. Relaxing activities (yoga, tai chi, gentle exercises)

5. Set PRIORITIES (what must get done and what can wait).... You don't have to do everything at once!

6. Stay connected to FRIENDS and FAMILY that can provide support and help!

-Coach Cornell
