Today Gila Bend Unified School District continues to serve over 450 students grades K-12.

GBUSD Student and Staff Safety,
We did confirm two positive student COVID cases late Friday afternoon. Confirming cases is a detailed process and takes time-contact, discussions, evidence, and reporting. Confirming can range from one day to 14+ days. We have also investigated other rumors/concerns. At this time, two positive student cases are confirmed. Cases are per household NOT per person as per my conversations with the Department of Health Services. The students that tested positive range in grades from elementary to high school. Due to HIPAA and FERPA-specifics cannot be discussed. We have cleaned the areas these students were in as part of our tracing process. 
Moving forward, please report all student COVID concerns to school principals, the high school counselor, or the superintendent. If you know your child is sick/COVID positive, do not send him/her to school and report immediately. Our reporting team is small in-order to stop the spread of rumors and ensure student confidentiality. We will always report and communicate with staff and community CONFIRMED cases. 
In-person classes are cancelled from 10/27-11/06. All students will be educated on-line. Parents, please continue to communicate and partner with us so we can provide a high-quality education.
