August 23, 2022 message from Superintendent Flores: GUSD response to incident at Christmas Hill Park
Melanie Corona

Good evening GUSD staff and families--

This afternoon, the Gilroy Police Department (GPD) responded to a shooting at Christmas Hill Park.  The incident took place after the school day was over for our elementary and middle school students, and prior to the end of the school day at our high schools.

District staff was notified by GPD about school sites and programs that might potentially be affected, and the District safety protocols were immediately implemented at three schools: Glen View Elementary, Solorsano Middle, and Gilroy High School.  Staff and students remained indoors until released by GPD, and at no time were any staff or students on our campuses in danger.  

I am grateful to the Gilroy Police Department and for the quick actions of our staff and after school program leaders for working to ensure the safety of our school communities.

Take care,
Dr. Deborah Flores, Ph.D.
Gilroy Unified School District
