Welcome To Greeley Central
Please be aware of where you are parking in each of the parking lots. There have been instances where emergency vehicles have needed to access the school and cars have been illegally parked in the lots, making it impossible for these vehicles to get where they need to be.
We realize that with the larger student population this year it is tougher to find available parking spaces. Please remember that in order to keep the flow of traffic through the parking lots, everyone needs to adhere to all parking signs and lines.
With the increased number of illegally parked vehicles this year, from this point on (April 5th, 2019), our School Resource Officers from the Greeley Police Department will be issuing tickets for those cars parked illegally.

If tutoring is cancelled we will announce the cancellation as soon as we know.
FREE & REDUCED LUNCHES
Every year each student who wishes to be considered for free & reduced lunches must have their parent or guardian fill out a new application.
The best method of doing this is online. Completing your application online takes significantly less time and will facilitate a quicker turnaround time for determining your status.
Please click the link below to take you to this online application:
If you prefer to fill out a paper application you can pick this application up from the main office or go directly to Nutrition Services at the Service Center located at 2504 4th Avenue. Please note that filling out a paper application does take longer to process and get results.
Please note that students who have not had an application processed by one of the last days in September will have a "paid" status until approximately the end of the first week in October. After that date, the student's free & reduced status will be revoked, so please don't wait until the last minute to complete this application. Please check with Nutritional Services for all required due dates & information:
STUDENT DROP-OFFPlease drop students off at the West entrance (student parking lot) in the morning for school. This parking lot is designed for a better flow of traffic. The Faculty parking lot (located on the North side of the building) is not designed for high-volume traffic and by trying to drop your student off at the North doors creates a bottle-neck on 15th Street and in the parking lot itself.The West entrance (student parking lot) creates a safer area for your student to get into the building rather than having them walk across 15th Street in traffic. Thank you for your attention to this as we strive to keep the area safe for not only your student but for you as well
ATTENDANCETo report an absence for your student please call the attendance line directly at (970) 348-5014Please also remember to bring a photo ID with you when you come to pick up your child. Although some staff may know the parents of students, not everyone in the office may be familiar with you or your child.Thank you for your cooperation.
District 6 Headlines
"Darling Perez is an incredible young lady with a heart of gold. Her name is so very fitting. I've known Darlng for four years of her high school tenure. She serves on the Diversity Union, a club of which I am a sponsor, and is currently on my executive committee. She is one of the students who helped continue Greeley's Race to End Hunger. She is a student of integrity and persistence. Through tremendous loss and hardship, Darling persevered. School has not always been easy for her, but she found herself on the journey and recognized the opportunities an education can provide to her. She will help anyone anytime she is able and truly wants to make a difference. She exudes "Pride, Class, and Dignity," and we are so happy she is part of our GCHS family." - Kendra Villarreal, Counselor
