Hello Greenspire Community –

All families should have received an email this morning with a link to complete a commitment form for our return to in-person learning beginning on Tuesday, January 26th.  Please complete this form by Thursday, January 14th at 11:59 pm so that we can begin to finalize schedules over the weekend and get students placed in pods.  We are excited to have students back on campus very soon!

School Closings

In the event of a school closing, you will be notified by…

  • Banner announcement on the top of the Greenspire homepage
  • An email to our school community
  • Listing on 9 & 10 News and 7 & 4 News

In the past, Greenspire has closed with TCAPS, however that will not necessarily be the case going forward as we have slightly different schedules and COVID-19 closures may affect in-person attendance.  Going forward, we will be listed by ourselves on 9 & 10 and 7 & 4.  

Student Support Council

The next Student Support Council meeting is Monday, January 11th at 7:00 pm.  

Here is the link to join…

You can always find the link to the Student Support Council’s website in the Toolbox section under Helpful Resources.

GVSU Tutoring

The opportunity for Greenspire students to receive free GVSU tutoring will continue into the second semester.  Some of our families have already participated in this program.  If you are interested, please visit the website below for more information and to schedule a tutoring session…

Enrollment 2021-2022

Re-enrollment for current students will begin on February 15th.  Jill will be sending you more information over the next few weeks.  

We have been receiving a lot of interest from prospective families over the past week…about two per day asking to schedule tours and get more information.  If you have family, friends, or co-workers interested in Greenspire, please have them complete the interest form on our website as soon as possible…

More information on high school tours and information sessions will be out in the very near future – stay tuned!
