We are just beginning the process of building the FY25 school budget.  The budget will be presented to the public at a hearing currently expected to be February 28.  The Superintendent’s Budget and notice of the hearing will be posted in the Greenfield Recorder 21 days before the scheduled hearing. I will provide updates as we go through the process.

COVID TEST KITS

Greenfield Public Schools strives to create a culture of health and safety in our school community at all times. We have partnered with the US Department of Education to provide all students and staff with COVID-19 home self-test kits. 

If you would like to receive a COVID-19 home self-test kit, please contact your student’s school nurse.  


Families can do their part to keep our school community safe by:

  • Monitoring their students’ health and checking for symptoms before sending students to school 
  • Testing their students and/or family members when they have symptoms of COVID-19
  • Keeping students home when they are sick
  • Make sure the school has updated contact information for parents/guardians
  • Notifying the school nurse of positive test results

I’d like to congratulate the GHS Band on their winter concert last evening.  They did a wonderful job! 

Take care and enjoy the extended weekend.
