Attention Georgetown School Community!
The Georgetown Police Department has informed us that there have been some recent mountain lion sightings in town at Buckeye Circle and on Main Street. We would like you to know so you can take appropriate precautions as you venture to and from school especially during times of limited sunlight. We also will be reviewing some safety strategies and drills with the students. Please call us if you have any questions.
For more information regarding mountain lion awareness, please continue reading here.
Infinite Campus released a mobile app for parents and students earlier this year. The app allows parents and students to see grades, schedules, attendance, and assignments. It doesn’t completely replace the parent/student portal, but it is a quick and easily accessible tool for parents and students. In fact some of our parents are already using it.

Georgetown Community School is looking for charitable donations for our Ski and Ride Program. Not all of our families can afford the program's up-front costs. Loveland Ski Area has graciously sponsored one child for every 10 kids who buy a package. As of today, we have 77 kids registered. We are so pleased with this high turnout.
We are asking you, as GCS parents and community members to help us meet the outdoor educational needs of all of our interested students.

On the school performance framework that is used by the state to evaluate schools, these schools “exceed” expectations on the academic achievement indicator and “meet or exceed” expectations on the indicator related to academic growth gaps.
