Our Vision

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.  

School Calendar Changes Due to Snow Days:

Wow!  Have we a had a crazy winter or what?  With all the changes many parents may be wondering how long into the summer will we be attending school.  At this point in time we have already used up our mandatory 5 emergency days.  Emergency days are required by the state to be made up at the end of the year.  After 5 days any remaining days off due to an emergency or weather conditions are considered Act of God days.  We have used 3 AOG days so far this winter.  These days do not require student attendance be made up at the end of the year.  So our final day of student attendance will be June 4th with an 11:50 dismissal to pick up report cards.  All other calendar updates will be sent to you, but we just wanted you to understand the process.

Message from the Office

ATTENTION!!! Please notifiy the Office if you have an address change or phone number change.  If there is ever an emergency it's important to keep all records current.

Lunch with your student:

Grand Ridge Grade School invites you to have lunch with your child.  Each grade level has been assigned a month for parents/guardians to enjoy lunch with their child.  In order to have enough space, we ask that you choose only one time during the assigned month to dine with your child.

If you wish to eat lunch with your child, please send a note to school by the morning of the day you wish to visit.  We kindly ask that you bring a sack lunch for yourself.  We ask that you do not bring food from restaurants into the school, as this will upset your child’s classmates.  Also, we ask that this special invitation is for parents or legal guardians only.  We cannot accommodate extended family members during the lunch hour as space is limited.  Your child’s lunch is exactly 20 minutes.  Parents must sign in at the office and then will be escorted to the multi-purpose room where the lunch is served.  You will meet your child at his or her lunch table.

We hope that many parents can take advantage of the opportunity to see their child during the school day and can experience a typical day in the lunchroom.
