GPS is committed to increasing our STEM opportunities for all students. STEM is a common abbreviation for four closely connected areas of study: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The fields are often associated due to the similarities that they share both in theory and practice. There's been a significant push in recent years to fill STEM jobs in the United States. Despite a focus on filling STEM-related jobs, American businesses can't fill their STEM jobs at an appropriate pace. -STEM [science, technology, engineering, mathematics] jobs are projected to grow 8.8%. -Specifically, software development employment is projected to grow 22%. https://www.snhu.edu/about-us/newsroom/2016/05/what-does-stem-mean-for-you

It can be difficult to tell the difference between an overnight illness and the onset of the cold or flu. Because our top priority at GPS is keeping our students, student families and staff safe and healthy, we have created protocols and a series of screening questions to help families decide whether their child’s symptoms warrant a sick day from school. Before school each day, students should be screened by parents for fever or other signs of illness. If the student shows such symptoms, they should be kept home. When students report to school, teachers will continue to monitor students for visible or reported signs of illness, and they may take the student’s temperature or send them to the school nurse for a further health screening as needed. Please see the infographics for additional guidelines. https://bit.ly/3AcDw4L https://bit.ly/398pXHu
