Best of luck to the girls and coaches!

  It has been brought to our attention that there is a phone scam going around Nebraska where families receive a phone call from someone claiming to be with the school.  These callers may utilize an app to make their voice sound like recognizable school personnel. The caller references “PowerSchool”, says that the family owes money, and states the family will be sent to collections if they do not pay. Then offers for you to pay your bill over the phone.

The school will NEVER ask for you to pay a bill over the phone. Please never give any personal information (credit card number or bank account number) over the phone unless you have initiated the phone call (calling a trusted phone number). If you receive a phone call and don’t recognize the phone number or get asked to pay over the phone, please hang up and call the school at the phone number you DO know… to ask further questions.

Community Members - We are excited to have many of you joining us for activities as our fall sports season gets underway.  Please note you will see updated signage in the parking lot when you arrive for activities.  First and foremost, those choosing to park in a handicapped parking space without properly displaying a permit will be ticketed.  Please reserve these spaces for those who need them.

Additionally, you will see several parking spaces that should be reserved for those with limited mobility.  There is no permit required for these spaces, we simply ask that if you need it, you use it.  If you don't need it, please park somewhere else.  Please help us ensure that all those who want to observe our student-athletes are able to safely and comfortably access our facilities.



With school starting and an increased awareness of COVID-19, we felt it was pertinent to remind families of the importance of monitoring your children for symptoms of COVID-19. COVID-19 is present in our community and together, we must be diligent in monitoring for symptoms.  Please click here to see important information and the protocol that will guide readmittance to school (and school activities) when students are ill.

Parent Resources

Early Development Network

The Early Development Network provides early intervention services for families with children birth to age three with developmental delays and/or health care needs and connects families to needed services.

Child Find

Nebraska ChildFind provides information to parents, school personnel, and service providers on child development and special education for children from birth (or date of diagnosis) to age 21. ChildFind also helps parents access information on rights and resources to help them advocate for an appropriate education for their child.

McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is the primary piece of federal legislation dealing with the education of children and youth experiencing homelessness. The Act was originally authorized in 1987 and most recently was reauthorized in 2015 as Title VII, Part B of the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Special Education Parent Survey

To ensure that Gothenburg Public Schools includes parents as active participants in their child’s special education process, we invite you to complete a parent survey.

The survey is available until April 1st, 2022 for parents of special education students ages 3 to 21 years of age. Gothenburg Public Schools will use your feedback to guide and improve upon our areas of weakness, and also work to promote areas that you feel are a strength for us. 

If your child has an IEP due before April 1st, 2022, you will have the option to complete the survey after the IEP meeting if you have not already done so. 

The Parent Survey is located here. Access to the parent survey link will close on April 1st, 2022.

Thank you for your time, and we value any feedback that you can provide us.
