GPS continues to monitor COVID-19; practices,competitions cancelled until March 23

With Spring Break underway for Guthrie Public Schools, Superintendent Dr. Mike Simpson says the school district is carefully monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“Members of our administrative team have been in contact with Health Department officials at both the county and state levels to make the best decisions in the interest of safety for our students and staff,” Simpson said in a release.

Simpson says they continue to communicate directly with State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister to determine the best course of action in this ever changing scenario.

Out of state travel by students or staff was suspended indefinitely on Friday. All extracurricular practices or competitions are cancelled until March 23.

“Prior to the break we surveyed our coaching staff and determined we didn’t have a practice scheduled until March 18, I wanted to see how the progression of this issue advanced,” Simpson said.

Simpson said it has become more apparent that we have serious health issues in front of us at the community, state and national levels.

“Items such as this, because they involve the safety and health of our students and staff, will always take priority.  These decisions will always be based on the input and data from experts in the field,” Simpson said.
