Due to COVID restrictions in various communities please click on the events below to find out game
information, schedule, protocols & maps.  

October 23 - SWC Volleyball @ McCook
Games at the college will be streamed on or on website.  We will not be able to stream games in both places.

October 23 - Football vs. Holdrege @ Gothenburg

October 26 & 27 - C1-11 Subdistrict Volleyball @ Gothenburg


We ask that all students who come to games and activities to please wear a mask.  In order to keep our students and families safe, all junior high and elementary students must sit in the bleachers rather than play or walk around during the game. Students may use the restroom or go to the concession stand during natural breaks in the game or activity (such as quarters or halftime or between sets in volleyball) but must find their way back to the bleachers while the game is in progress.

Students are not allowed to play football or any other games while on school grounds and should not gather outside of the stadium or in the parking lot during the game.  We ask that students attend games to cheer on the Swedes.

We are so thankful we have made it this far into our fall activity season and we are unbelievably proud of our students and staff as they continue to do the right thing to protect in-person learning and our Swede activities.

Thank you,

Adminstration of Gothenburg Public Schools



Gothenburg Public Schools is looking for substitute paraprofessionals for the current 2020-2021 school year. In the event of an absence, a substitute para will support our teachers in reinforcing learning concepts, and assist with a wide variety of other duties. If interested, please contact Lori Verster at 308-537-3651ext. 9 or email for an application.  


Swede Fans,

The Gothenburg Public School Administration would like to thank you for all your support over the years and this coming year.  The 2020-2021 activity season is going to be a challenging one for all of us.  As we continue to do everything we can to keep our student-athletes, coaches, and sponsors safe and healthy, we are encouraging our Swede Fans to watch our home events on the Striv link  

If you choose to attend any home event, all spectators will wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth at all times.  We also request that spectators socially distance themselves when in attendance at GPS events.  Home and visitor seating will be marked off on every other row of the bleachers for volleyball and football games.  Bleachers will not be available for softball games.  Only members of the same family should be within six feet of each other. Sport-specific guidelines will be communicated and sent to opposing schools prior to each contest.  Social distancing is expected to be followed at all our events at GPS.

Gothenburg Public Schools is grateful for the opportunity to host extracurricular activities this year during the pandemic.  We appreciate everyone doing their part to keep the community of Gothenburg a safe and healthy environment.  

Go Swedes!!!

Due to the COVID ORANGE dial status, Gothenburg Public Schools Lunch Program will be offering limited choices at lunch. 

Social distancing is imperative and in order to move students through the line quickly and efficiently, we will be offering pizza and one other option on each line. Once the risk dial supports less-restrictive measures, we will offer many options for students. 

The health and safety of everyone is our top priority. Thank you for your understanding.
