Craig Hill Apparel Store is Open Again
PikMyKid created a new app as of last summer. Many of you likely have the new app. As of April 1st, the company will no longer support the older version if you do happen to have it.
Please double check that you have the correct app to ensure that there are not any delays at dismissal after the break!
KidsCare/Child Care over April Break
Exciting news for families who may need child care during the upcoming April Recess, KidsCare will be opening up enrollment for the break to district families who are not currently enrolled at KidsCare. This year's program, INTO THE WILD, will run Monday through Thursday (4/3-4/6) and will be provided out of Autumn Lane and Longridge Elementary schools at a cost of $170 for the week. Visit the KidsCare landing page at www.greececsd.org/kidscare for more information and directions to register.

23-24 Transportation Applications Due July 1
Greece Central’s Office of Student Transportation Services is now accepting 2023-24 transportation requests for private, parochial, and charter school students, as well as requests for busing to and from child care facilities. An application must be filed each year that service is requested. Child care transportation is only available for students in grades K-8.
CLICK HERE to complete the child care application.
CLICK HERE to complete the private/parochial/charter school application.
Applications must be completed by July 1. This deadline is important. Bus runs are established in the spring and early summer. Current residents who fail to request transportation by the July 1 deadline are not guaranteed service at the opening of school.
Applications received after July 1 will be accepted, but no new bus stops will be created to accommodate late applicants. Those missing the deadline will be transported from the closest established bus stop.

Parents- Do You Need to Know Who to Call With Questions?
Building trust and ensuring that there are open lines of communication between home and school are essential for student success. We want to be sure you know who to contact with questions or concerns. In December, the district shared a new resource for families. In case you missed it, this linked Who to Call with Questions, Concerns and Compliments reference guide is a step-by-step guide families can use to ensure questions are answered quickly and effectively. Please refer to it whenever you need to speak to someone about your child’s progress. Whether your inquiry is about academics, safety, or services and supports, there are people at the school and district level who are ready to help whenever a question or concern arises.
Updating Contact Info in Infinite Campus
Communication from school to families only works if we have accurate contact information. See the linked Google Slide presentation on how you can ensure we have the accurate contact information and make any necessary changes: UPDATING CONTACT INFORMATION IN INFINITE CAMPUS
