The weather is rapidly changing. Please make sure students are coming to school properly dressed. If you haven't sent in a change of clothes, to include a sweatshirt, now would be a great time.

Parents, please complete the pre-screening tool before sending students each day. This is mandatory in order for students to come to school. The pre-screening tool can be found on the school website.
Dear Georgetown Families, The USDA, a federal government agency, has funded lunch programs until December 31st, 2020, or until the funding runs out. What does this mean? This means that all Georgetown students will have a free breakfast and lunch every day. You still need to fill out lunch tickets, but please do not send in money. What do you need to do? Please fill out the free and reduced lunch form. I am happy to help anyone who needs assistance doing so. Free and reduced lunch forms allow us to receive federal funding for education, as well as give us access to funding to help feed students. They are also kept highly confidential. As always, please let me know if you have any questions at all. Kind regards, Nina Willette Principal Georgetown Central School
