Thank you so much for the terrific response to our Elementary PTO survey! Based upon the survey results, Tuesdays at 5pm worked well for most families to attend meetings.
Our first elementary parent meeting of the year will be on Tuesday, October 11th from 5-6pm in the elementary cafeteria. We will provide snacks and free childcare for Grandview students (sorry no younger siblings as we are not equipped to adequately supervise younger children).
We will livestream the meeting via Google Meet. The meeting will be recorded and shared out afterwards for those unable to attend.
Due to bus driver shortages and overcrowding on certain routes, we have made some changes to bus routes. Please see the attached document. Changes are highlighted in yellow. Bus routes 1 and 6 have separated, so times have changed. Some stops have been moved from route 3 to route 7 due to overcrowding. These changes will go into effect tomorrow, Tuesday, September 13th. Please contact the office with any questions!

•The homecoming parade tomorrow is rain or shine at 2pm. Please send a poncho or umbrella with your child in case of rainy weather. ☔️
•Park at the middle school lot to avoid getting blocked by buses and parent pick up line. 🚙
•Parents that wish to attend the parade and watch with their child will wait outside the elementary building until your child’s class comes outside to limit traffic inside the building. You may also wait along the fence outside. 🚧
•After the parade, each teacher will have a sign out sheet. Please sign your child out before leaving with them. 📝
•Please message your child’s teacher before the parade if you plan to take them home afterwards so they can have them bring their backpack outside with them. 🎒
•Wear black & gold tomorrow to show that #EaglePride! 🖤💛🦅
Please note: The track will be closed until further notice for repairs, resurfacing, and repainting. Thanks for your understanding and patience.
Due to the forecasted storms tomorrow, the elementary field day will be CHANGED to Friday. Please make sure that students dress appropriately for the weather, it is supposed to be a little cooler/windy. There is still a slight chance of rain Friday, so we ask that parents send in a change of clothes in case students get wet. Please send a water bottle to school with your child to take outside with them.
