Happy Holidays from Gothenburg Public Schools! Staff and students enjoy your break.  See you all back on January 3rd!


Gothenburg Schools will dismiss at 2:30 on Wednesday (12/19) and Thursday (12/20) this week. Thursday's early dismissal is a result of our students meeting the challenge of restocking the shelves of our local food pantry. Over 1,400 pounds so far! WAY TO GO SWEDES!!!!!
