Novel Coronavirus Information

supplemental learning

Supplemental learning opportunities are available to GUSD families in two ways: hard copy and online. Supplemental learning opportunities will not be graded and are optional.  New content will be added to the online supplemental learning opportunities and printable/ hard copy packets Tuesday, March 24, and again on Tuesday, March 31. Updated content will not be available the week of Spring Break (April 6-10).  If necessary, updated content will be added pending school reopening.

Hard copy packets can be picked up at any of the food distribution sites (South Valley Middle, Solorsano Middle, Antonio Del Buono Elementary, Eliot Elementary, Glen View Elementary, Rod Kelley Elementary and Rucker Elementary) from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

GUSD is distributing Chromebooks to students who need access to technology for distance learning. Please complete this brief survey to help our team gauge the technology needs of our school communities. Once you have completed the survey, our Ed Services team will contact out you via email with a Chromebook distribution date and appointment time.  Please be patient, as our District is constrained by the number of Chromebooks available and social distancing protocols.  There is no need to complete the technology survey more than once.  The District is lending one Chromebook per family.  This program is available only to families with students currently enrolled in the Gilroy Unified School District.

Are there any known cases of COVID-19 at any GUSD schools?

Community transmission is ongoing in Santa Clara County. As the community follows the Health Officer Order to Shelter in Place issued on March 16, 2020, notification regarding potential contacts to cases will no longer be provided, and school districts are not required to provide any notifications.  Everyone, except for those providing or receiving essential services, should be staying home, especially anyone who is feeling ill.  Anyone who develops symptoms of COVID-19, should call their healthcare provider for further guidance before going to the doctor.  Only the severely ill should seek care at an emergency room and should, if at all possible, call first.

April 1, 2020: Santa Clara County School Superintendents’ Response to State Leaders’ Recommendation
GUSD Communications

April 1, 2020

Dear Santa Clara County School Communities,

Thank you for your dedication as we continue to navigate the regional and state shelter-at-home order for the safety and well-being of our students and families. The unified effort as we persist through these unprecedented and challenging times together has been nothing short of remarkable.

Governor Newsom and State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Thurmond have announced that school campuses in California will not be able to reopen this school year. To be clear, the 2019-2020 school year has not ended. The remainder of the school year now transitions from in-person classroom instruction to instruction and support for students through distance learning options as described by the California Department of Education (CDE).

We will continue to navigate our way through this pandemic locally with the guidance of Dr. Sara Cody and the Santa Clara County Public Health Department so that we can ensure the health and safety of our students and their families as well as for our staff.

We acknowledge that distance learning comes with its own set of challenges, and we commit to provide students, families and educators with ongoing support. As all of our districts further implement distance learning options and academic strategies, the social and emotional well-being of all of our students is of utmost importance to us. We are working to find ways to stay connected which will continue to help us learn together and celebrate important milestones. In the coming weeks, each of our districts will provide families with information regarding how grades, graduation, transcripts, scholarships, summer school, and continued distance learning instruction will be handled.

Our community is strong, and together we will overcome the negative impact of these life-changing events. When school sites re-open, we will enthusiastically welcome back our students, staff, and families to our campuses. In the meantime, thank you for your patience, flexibility, and understanding.
