COVID-19 Updates and Information

Grades 3-5 will return for full time in-person learning starting Monday, April 26, which will fully reopen all elementary schools. The K-12 Full Remote program will still be available to families who choose that option. Due to state regulations, Columbia and Goff will remain in the Hybrid Model at this time.

Activities/Field Trips

Howard L. Goff Middle School is pleased to offer a variety of extra-curricular clubs and activities. Parents should take time to talk to their children about the possibilities they may wish to pursue. Many of the activities don’t start until a little later in the school year, so students need to listen to the morning announcements for upcoming events and activities.

Late buses are available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 3:58 p.m. from Goff Middle School. We ask that parents or guardians pick up their children promptly at 3:58 or allow them to ride the late buses. Parking directly in front of the school is reserved for school buses – please do not park in the school bus zone when picking up your child. Reminder to Parents: Late buses only stop at central drop-off locations. The stops are not the same as the regular school day runs. Please check the transportation page or call the bus garage if you have specific questions regarding drop-off points (518-477-9288).
