Dear Parents/Guardians and Students of GHS:

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of you back for the 2017-2018 school year.  I am excited to be taking over as Principal of GHS this year and look forward to working with all of you in making the 2017-18 school year a successful one.  The custodial staff worked extremely hard this summer to ensure a school that is clean and ready for students, faculty, and staff.

A School Council was formed at GHS last year and there are still openings for parent/guardian representation.  If you are interested in serving on the council, please call Brenda Lively at 772-1350 extension 1005. 

There have been important traffic pattern changes at GHS this year to ensure the safety of all who enter the building: 

  • All parents/guardians dropping off students will now do so in front of school (in the previous bus-drop off lanes).  This remains a one-way.  The parking lot in front of the school is for staff and visitors.  Please do not use this area for student drop off.
  • All buses will arrive via Kent Avenue and drop off and pick up students at the Event Entrance at the back of the building.
  • All student parking will now be in the northeast parking lot (parking along the track will no longer be student parking).  If a student drives to school, an appropriate parking pass must be obtained through the Main Office.

The following list is important information that I wanted to make you all aware of:

  • A Meet and Greet is planned for Monday, August 28th from 6:00-7:00 pm at GHS.  This will provide students and parents the opportunity to meet teachers and staff, tour the building, and ask questions. Please join us and take advantage of this time to get to know the faculty and staff here at GHS.
  • The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 30th. Students must be promptly in class by 7:45 am. (Punctuality is important.)  Breakfast is available for all students free of charge starting at 7:15 am. 

Students will receive a packet of various forms on the first day during their TEAM.  Please read everything carefully and be sure to authorize and submit appropriate forms to the Main Office no later than September 8th.

  • Enclosed is your child’s and your PowerSchool letters for use of the student and parent grade portals.  If you have accessed PowerSchool previously, it will state that you have changed your password.  If you are unsure of what that password is, you can call our guidance administrative assistant, Ms. Benoit, at 772-1350 x1129 and she can reset the student or parent password for use.  If you have never used PowerSchool, enclosed is a handout on how to set up initially.   You may view your student’s schedule in PowerSchool as well as all grades and assignments during the school year.   PowerSchool portal access will not be available, however, until Friday, August 25.  If you are unable to access after this date, please call the guidance office or stop by the school.  We are open from 7:30 am - 3:30 pm Monday through Friday.  The add/drop period will end on September 15th.  No changes to any student schedule will be made after that date.
  • Students who take medications must clear paperwork with Ms. Jamieson, the school nurse.  If you have any questions please call her at 772-1350 ext. 1137.
  • School pictures will be taken on Friday, September 1st.  All students will receive an ID with this picture on it that they must wear during school.  A flyer is enclosed for purchasing pictures of your student.
  • Greenfield High School is a scent-free building. We ask that all students and visitors refrain from wearing scented products.
  • When students arrive at school, it is the expectation that they remain on campus.
  • The cell phone policy at GHS is off and out-of-sight with the exception of the student’s 30-minute lunch period.  We look to parents/guardians for their support in upholding this policy. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at your earliest convenience.
