Winter weather and Grandview schools. The Grandview School District would like to remind people that winter weather can often affect school schedules. If there is a need for a two-hour delay or a school cancellation due to weather families will receive a phone call from the district as early at 6 a.m. The district also works to quickly get information out to the media - television and radio stations - on any scheduling changes. For more information on the two-hour delay schedule or which television and radio stations the district contacts, please visit the Cancellations & Delays page on the district's website.
What's on the lunch menu is a daily topic of conversation in homes throughout the district. Every morning kids want to know what's for lunch.
