Student Social Media ALERT
We have discovered that many of our GBUSD students are participating in negative social media interactions (i.e., bullying, talk of suicide, etc.) Parents, please monitor your child’s social media activities. If you discover a major concern with social media and your child, a resource to utilize is Southwest Behavioral Health Services in Goodyear. You can call Kathy Villa at 480-848-4662 to help your child.
