Good Afternoon,


 Mrs. Goodwin and the Jump Rope after- school enrichment program
 warming up so that they don’t hurt themselves when learning new tricks.

Over April vacation a new phone system was installed at Goshen Center School.When you call you will hear an introductory message with options for choosing different lines, an absence, front office, and cafeteria.This message is not the phone on night mode. We no longer have a night mode and the phone will always ring. If no one is here to answer, it will allow you to leave a message.

In the past, several phone numbers would get you a line into the school.With this new system, we have only one number 860-491-6020. The old numbers will not work any longer.If you do experience any difficulties, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may address them.If you are having trouble calling the school, you can always send an email to gcs@rsd6.org.This email is checked often.
