Please watch your voicemail

Garfield Re-2 Families: We have many teachers using Google Voice to make phone calls to families from their District computers. As great a tool as this is for our teachers, there is one drawback - the phone calls will appear as blocked or Caller ID unavailable.

We know that there is a lot of sensitivity to answering calls are unidentified. Teachers are being asked to leave a short message letting them know they are reaching out. Please keep an eye on your voicemail if you see those kinds of messages on your phones.

We would like your feedback

We know that these are certainly unique, and challenging times. There can be no doubt that our administrators and our staff were not anticipating turning our existing educational system on its head, and pivoting to online instruction. Parents and students didn't anticipate this change either.

After week one, we would like a little feedback from families to see how we can modify and continue to improve the system. Please take a moment to answer these questions and we will use the answers to help us as we move forward with our online delivery model.


Welcome class of 2033: Kindergarten registration is now open.

RIFLE – The coronavirus cannot keep the Class of 2033 from furthering their education.

The Garfield Re-2 School District has officially opened the online kindergarten enrollment portal at The registration portal can also be found on the Garfield Re-2 website at Registration information is available in both English and Spanish.

Traditionally, parents and guardians are asked to complete the online portion and then finalize the registration process with an in-person follow-up meeting to provide supporting documentation. This year, families are encouraged to upload all of their supporting documentation via the online portal. School secretaries will contact registered families to follow up regarding their prospective kindergarten students.
