AMI Days

Greenbrier School District has been approved for Alternate Methods of Instruction days in the case of inclement weather or other emergency circumstances. If this is ever the case as we enter the winter months, parents/guardians will be notified through our eNotes phone call and email, as well as through the district/school websites and social media. Google classroom and apps through student gmail accounts will be the main method of accessing student packets, and any students without internet access will receive AMI packets in hard copy. AMI days will allow for Greenbrier School District to maintain the timing of student learning throughout the year rather than adding additional days to the school calendar in May.

Important Notice Regarding Exception to Semester Test Policy

During this winter flu season, an exception will be made to our absentee policy as it relates to semester text exemptions. If a student brings a doctor's note stating he or she is diagnosed with the flu or similar contagious illness, those days will not be considered as an absence counting toward the test exemptions.

Panther Plus FAQ

Below are a few questions related to our new Panther Plus time at GHS. If you have additional questions please feel free to email

Q: What is Panther Plus time?

A: Based on input from our teachers and students in recent surveys, discussions began about students needing more time and opportunities to work with teachers on reinforcing skills or extending their learning on various topics. We came up with a designated time called Panther Plus to allow for this extra time.

Q: When do you have Panther Plus?

A: On days when we schedule Panther Plus time, we run an activity bell schedule just as we do for pep rallies or assemblies. The days vary based on student needs and testing schedules, but we are working on having it bi-weekly or once a week as needed.

Q: Where do students report during Panther Plus?

A: ALL students report to a designated location/teacher during Panther Plus time and attendance is taken at each location. If a student is "assigned" to report to a teacher's classroom for a specific need then he/she attends this "closed" session. Teachers are able to assign students based on each student's individual needs. If a student is not assigned to a session, then "open" sessions are available for students to choose where they need/want to attend. There is at least one open session per content (math, English, science, etc) as well as open computer labs for students during this time.

Q: How do students know where to report?

A: Students will receive an email to know where to report during Panther Plus time. The email will either be from the teacher who assigned them to their class OR a Google form is sent by Mrs. Griffin where students select which open session they need to attend. Once a student makes a selection, he/she cannot change their response so we want to make sure they make a good first choice.
