Hello everyone! This is an amazing opportunity for our families in the district to join a free and completely confidential session for mental health and parenting information with the Cook Center.


On Wednesday, at 7:00, Greenbrier will be host to a Virtual Family Mental Health Night. Parents can log in to the virtual event to hear about free resources available and attend a Q & A session where parents can ask a licensed psychologist about mental health concerns.

Traffic Routes

Car Riders:

Please pull all the way up! DO NOT stop until everyone is pulled up and parked. Please wait until you are parked to allow your student to get into the car. This ensures student safety. This also helps us get as many students loaded into their cars as well as decrease traffic coming from HWY 25.


Reminder: We have two lines for GMS. One line exits to HWY 65 and the other loops back to HWY 25.

Sports Schedules:

Counseling Corner
