Pooled Testing Results

Pooled testing has begun in each building and takes place on Mondays and Tuesdays, depending on the grade level.  For the first two week so pooled testing, there were no positive tests.  Test results are typically received by the nurse by Thursday each week.  In the event that a pool tests positive, the nurse will BINAXNow test each person in the pool and continue with contact tracing at that point, if necessary.  If you do not hear anything regarding your student's test results each week, that simply means that their pool tested negative and no further action is needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Frequently Asked Questions document on the Greely Goes GREEN page is continually updated.  You can check this document for answer to your questions regarding the Greely Goes GREEN Plan.

Community Partners

Our Community Partners are strong supporters of various areas of the school.  Without them, our students would not have many of the wonderful opportunities and experiences that they receive.

The Greely PTO Needs Your Help!

Parent University is a program of Greely PTO that was launched in 2015 to provide free, expert-led sessions on key topics for parents and families--often in collaboration with MSAD #51, Foundation 51 and other community partners. As we plan upcoming sessions, we want to hear from you to ensure that topics are meeting needs and are as relevant, timely and engaging as possible. Past topics include: parenting through uncertain times, youth sports, managing social media and screen time, coping with anxiety, racism, and financial literacy. Please take one minute to fill out a quick survey here.
