PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES ON 2/20
We will be holding our 1st Parent Teacher Conference of semester 2 on Thursday, February 20th from 4pm to 8pm. We will be utilizing our arena style format for these conferences.
Parents and guardians should enter through the West entrance to find teacher locations. We will also have report cards for students and infinite campus information for the parent portal.
PARENT/GUARDIAN CONTACT INFORMATION
If you are a parent or guardian of a student at Greeley Central (or for that matter, a student at any District 6 school) please make sure you have updated your contact information with your student's current school.
If you have not received phone calls or emails from the District or Greeley Central in a while, there's a good chance that your contact information is incorrect or that your number or email address has blocked incoming calls or emails from our school and District.
In order to provide our parents and guardians with the most up to date information and to contact you in case of emergency, valid contact information is crucial. If you have a new phone number or have moved recently, please contact the school and we will update the information. Please note that you can update email addresses and phone numbers through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal as well. A change of address does require proof of address and must be sumbitted to the school or District office before we can change this.
Thank you in advance for your help.
TUTORING AFTER SCHOOL & SATURDAY SCHOOL
Need some help with a class or two? Need some extra time to get some other homework completed?
Well, you're in luck! Tutoring is available for GCHS students Tuesday-Friday (when school is in session) from 3:30pm-5:00pm in the Library Computer Lab (room 215).
PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NOT TUTORING DURING FINALS WEEK as there is plenty of extra time given during seminar and test prep blocks.
If tutoring is cancelled during the normal school week (outside of finals week) we will announce the cancellation as soon as we know.
Also, Saturday School will be offered throughout the year. Times will be from 8am-11am on the Saturdays listed below. Help in all content areas will be provided. If you have questions regarding Saturday School, please contact Amy Bekins at firstname.lastname@example.org:

- February 22nd
- March 7th
- April 4th
- April 18th
- May 2nd

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.
NEW STUDENT ADMISSIONS
Students new to District 6 will need to register online through the District 6 Admissions webpage. Please read all required information given on the Admissions page before proceeding to fill out the application.
Click the link below start the registration process:
If your address is not in our school boundary, you must also fill out an open enrollment application on the Admissions page along with registering your student (click the "Register Your Student" link above and then look for the "Open Enrollment" link on that page). At this time, students not in our boundary will be placed on a wait list for Greeley Central, but you must first register AND apply for open enrollment.
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.
