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.  This invitation is for parents or legal guardians only.  Parents must sign in at the office and then will be escorted to the multi-purpose room where the lunch is served.

January:  Kindergarten and 5th Grade

February:  1st and 6th Grade

March:  2nd and 7th Grade

April:  3rd and 8th Grade

May:  4th Grade

Arriving in the Morning and Picking up

Parents, we need your assistance with the rules for arriving in the morning and picking up after school.

Before School:

The school day begins at 8:15 and ends at 3:00.  Wednesdays are 2:20 dismissal.  Students should start arriving by 8:00 and no later than 8:15.    Lately we have had students being dropped off at school as early as 7:30; Students should not be on school grounds before 8:00.  Breakfast children may enter at 8:00.  The doors will be locked until 8:05.  Children walking should use the crossing walk if they need to cross the street.  The Crossing Guard is there to assist them.  Riders should use the north main entrance by the office.  Parents who drive their students to school must drop off the children on the west side of the building between 8:00 and 8:15.

After School:

School dismisses at 3:00 pm.  Students are to leave the building immediately at close of school day, unless under the supervision of a teacher.  Students who are walking will exit the building using the east side doors near the playground.

Bus Notes:

Parents should send a note with their child at the beginning of the day.  Phone calls will not be accepted.  The office will write a Bus Slip that must be given to the bus driver letting them know your child is not riding.  Parents or guardians arriving at the end of the day to pick up a child will not be allowed to take the student off the bus unless a bus note has been written.

Homework Program Dismissal:

Effective Tuesday, November 28th, students that stay for the Homework Program will follow new dismissal procedures for locations where they are to be picked up.

Walkers will be dismissed as usual to proceed out Door E2 down the alley.

Car riders will exit the building out of Door N1 on the Northside of the new addition.  All students that are picked up by a parent or guardian will only exit out this door.
