GPS School Year Begins Successfully
School began this morning for students in Guthrie. This morning the entire central office
administrative team toured all buildings.
According to Dr. Mike Simpson, Superintendent of Schools, “Overall,
we are very pleased with how this morning went.
We experienced the usual traffic issues we expect with the first day of
school but the Transportation Department seemed to have a fairly smooth
beginning. We have experienced some air
conditioning issues in several buildings with the most severe issue being at
the Junior High. We expect a contractor
to be onsite this afternoon. This is not
unusual as filling the buildings for the first time places loads on the units
they haven’t experienced since the start of the 2013-14 school year. I was very impressed with our teachers and
staff as they provided orientation to our students this morning.”
