Garfield County Food Resource List from Public Health/Salud Pública del Condado de Garfield

During this period of high demand for food resources at food banks, we encourage all families to determine if they qualify for additional food resources in the community. The benefits they can receive monthly may help to stabilize the family’s food budget and offer more choices for what they eat.

Durante este período de alta demanda de recursos alimentarios en los bancos de alimentos animamos a todas las familias a determinar si califican para recursos alimenticios adicionales en la comunidad. Los beneficios que pueden recibir mensualmente pueden ayudar a estabilizar el presupuesto de alimentos de la familia y ofrecer más opciones para lo que comen.

Garfield Re-2 School Board meetings move to Monday Nights

Beginning July 27, the Garfield Re-2 School Board meetings will move to Monday nights. A complete schedule will be posted on the Garfield Re-2 School Board page shortly.


The Board is also providing additional, live, opportunities for public comment at school board meetings while we are continuing to adapt to public health physical distancing requirements.


Citizens will still be able to send an email to publicaudience@garfieldre2.net and have it read into the record. Emails must be received by 4:30 p.m. the day of the school board meeting and should include your name, physical address and phone number.


***NEW *** Citizens can also comment via Zoom or in person. Board meetings must continue to meet public health guidance and currently - per physical distancing guidelines - we can still have a limited number of people in the board room. However, the Board will take "reservations" for either Zoom or in-person comments during public audience by sending an email to publicaudience@garfieldre2.net by 4:30 p.m. the day of the school board meeting.


Specifics for this new process will be drafted soon.

Garfield Re-2 School District

Our vision is to Encourage, Nurture and Challenge every student, every day.
