  1. This year, we will have two eLearning Days (November 7 and February 5).  A change from last year is our schools will no longer be open those days for kids to come and work.  We are working with some local agencies (like the Boys and Girls Club) to find a place for kids who don’t have supervision at home those days. 
  2. Car rider traffic- Please drop your child off along the curb.  In order to keep all students safe during pick up and drop off, we ask that you only park in the parking lot if you plan to come into the building or the traffic has cleared. 
  3. Lunch Menu
  4. If you would like to bring lunch for your child, please contact the office to reserve a conference room. Students can choose friends to eat in the conference room as well.   
  5. We encourage students to attend athletic events. Any GCJHS student who wears school colors will be admitted for free to our junior high home events.  
  6. We will have two eLearning Days this year, where students will work from home and teachers will keep office hours. The dates are November 7 and February 5.  School days canceled due to weather can also be eLearning days. If this occurs, details will be given in the automated phone call.
  7. Breakfast is available to students every morning before school for $1.75.

Principal, Greenfield Central Junior High School
