School Safety Plan
GPISD’s Plan for a Safe School Year

- A return to in-person classes will provide the opportunity for District personnel to better deal with the learning losses that have occurred since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and it will ensure that all services for students who have special needs will be
- The social and emotional needs of our students and staff can be better met if we are together at
We are doing everything possible to make sure that our students and staff return to buildings that are safe. We have developed a plan for maintaining our buildings in a way that promotes the health of students, staff, and visitors. In the document that we are providing here, you will find the details of that plan. We are also providing details about the health practices that we will implement to prevent transmission of COVID-19 and to manage any new cases of the virus that may occur.
The 2021-2022 school year promises to be a great one, and we hope that you will join us. We are better together!
Safety of students, staff, and visitors
This plan is based on the current recommendations from our state and local governing bodies as well as the Centers for Disease Control. We will continue to monitor their guidelines and update each section to ensure that we are following the most recent protocols for keeping our students, staff, and visitors safe.
