Welcome to Grand Ridge Grade School
In partnership with our families and community, Grand Ridge CCSD #95 will educate all students to reach their highest potential. Grand Ridge will provide a safe learning environment, will respond to students' individual learning and emotional needs, and will maintain high expectations for achievement. Our goal is to develop students who are responsible, respectful, kind, and passionate for life-long learning.

Due to the increasing numbers of positive cases of COVID-19 in our district, we are going to move to an adaptive pause beginning Monday May 3rd. Teachers will use a Remote Planning Day on Monday May 3rd, so students will not have remote instruction. Remote learning will begin on Tuesday May 4th. All students will be able to report back to school on Monday May 17th.
We know that this is a challenging situation but believe that by making the choice to move to an adaptive pause at this time in the school year, we will hopefully be able to complete the last 2 weeks of school in-person and limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Please take precautions at home by following the CDC and IDPH guidelines. Wear masks when in public and within 6 ft. of non-family or non-household members. If you or your child develop symptoms and have a positive test, we ask that you please call and inform the school as soon as possible, because IDPH notifications are moving slowly due to increased numbers in the area.
With these precautions in place we will be able to come back to school on May 17th for in-person learning.
11:50 a.m. Dismissal ~ Wednesday, May 5th
Lunches for May 4-14:
While we are on an adaptive pause, we will have lunches that will be available to our students. All meals will need to be picked up by the parent at the school between the hours of 11:30-12:00 p.m. at the W1 door.
The first meal will be available to be picked up on Tuesday, May 4th.
If you are interested in receiving a meal, please contact me by 12:00 p.m. on Monday, May 3rd.
