Hello GP families!

Just a reminder that if your child is exhibiting any symptoms of illness, please keep them home. There are numerous viruses going around in addition to COVID and we would appreciate your help in preventing the spread of illness in our school. The district is currently encouraging COVID testing, quarantining while symptomatic, and masking if students are ill. At this point it is not safe to assume its "just allergies". Please keep an eye on the DVUSD webpage for guidance and COVID-19 updates.

Amber Petculescu RN

Gavilan Peak School Nurse


Overdue books?

Please have your child return all overdue books to the front office in the designated baskets. Our library is closed for the next few weeks but we are still collecting overdue items. You can disregard any overdue notice email you may be receiving until February 1st.
