Gila Crossing Families,

In the Governor's Executive Order 13, Section 16, part (c), it states:

  • (c) the school provides surveillance testing in coordination with and upon recommendations from the Tribal Health Department and COVID-l9 Task Force

Gila Crossing will have surveillance testing this Friday, April 1st. Students must have a negative test result in order to return to school on Monday, April 4th.The testing will take place ON CAMPUS during the school day.

Please make sure you have signed the Covid testing consent form for your student. This consent is critical so that they can test students for Covid19 and share the results with both Gila River Health and GCCS so your student can continue in-person learning.

If your in-person student misses this surveillance testing on Friday, April 1st, you will need to secure a lab-analyzed test on your own and bring in negative results before the student is allowed to resume in-person learning.

Lastly, students who started the week of March 28th will still need to test this Friday, April 1st.

Thank you for working with us to meet this requirement of Executive Order 13.
