October 25th at 6 pm in the cafeteria at Federal Street School

We will provide transportation for the meetings held at Greenfield High School and Federal Street School.  If you plan to attend either of these meetings and need transportation, please contact the Superintendent’s Office at 772-1310.

We are also providing child care at those two meetings. Please contact the Superintendent’s Office if you will need to access child care.

If you need a copy of the report, it is available on the district website or you can request a hard copy from the Superintendent’s office. A summary document is also on the front page of the website or can be accessed here:

MCAS REPORTS

The student MCAS performance reports were just received by the district and will be sent home by Wednesday, October 19th.  It is important to remember that the MCAS score is only one data point when we talk about student or even district performance.  If you have questions when you receive your child’s report (if they took MCAS last year), please contact your child’s teacher or the building administrator.

SYMPTOMATIC COVID TESTING CONSENT

Our nursing staff will be able to conduct COVID testing for students or staff who develop signs of illness during the school day for parents/guardians who provide written consent.  Please use the link below to submit consent for testing.  We will not be able to accept consent over the phone if your child becomes ill during the day so please submit permission through this link or send a letter into school with your child. The consent form is also available on the website under Departments, Health and Wellness.

Please do not send your child to school with symptoms of illness in order for them to be tested by the nurse.  We need for students who are sick to stay home and get tested outside of school.

Please contact your school nurse or Melissa Bednarski, nurse leader at melbed1@gpsk12.org with any questions.

CONSENT FOR SYMPTOMATIC TESTING 

STAFFING

The district is still looking for Instructional Assistants across all grade levels and substitute teachers and instructional assistants.  If you are interested, please check the website and click the “Click here for employment opportunities” bar on the front page.

Take care,

Christine
