REMINDER REGARDING SAFETY

Although we are close to the end of the school year, we are asking students and families to please continue to report issues that may be related to student safety to the building administrators.  We hold safety for students and staff as our highest priority but we need continued help from our GPS community.  Thank you so much to everyone who has helped to keep GPS a safe school environment!

FREE COMMUNITY MOVIE SCREENING

The Northwest District Attorney’s Office, in collaboration with the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Hampshire and Franklin Counties, will provide a free screening of the Frontline documentary Sex Trafficking in America.  This will be followed by a panel discussion.  This is offered to parents of teens, providers, educators, and anyone working in youth-serving organizations.  The screening will be held on May 29 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Greenfield Garden Cinema.

The Greenfield SEPAC is hosting a free Zoom workshop on Monday, June 3 at 6:00 pm on the topic of Evaluation and Eligibility for special education services.  All are welcome.  Pre-registration is required – click here to receive the event link.
