Teacher work-stoppage will move to Day 7 for GPS; Tuesday cancelled

Guthrie Public Schools announced they will not hold classes on Tuesday, April 10 as teachers continue to hold out for education funding.


This marks the seventh day the school district has forced to cancel classes.

“This closure is needed due to the number of teachers indicating they will be absent far exceeding the number of substitute teachers available,” Superintendent Dr. Mike Simpson said.

The district says they will consider the ability to staff teacher absences on a day by day basis.

The April scheduled school board meeting is set for Monday evening beginning at 7 p.m. and a discussion on the walkout is expected to take place.
