No uniforms at GMS this fall. This fall students at GMS will no longer have a uniform they are required to wear. Instead, the school will have a standard dress code like every other building in the district. The change comes after more than five meetings between parents and staff over the past year with neither side voicing strong positions on the benefits of continuing the policy. According to Principal James Heinle, staff pointed out too much time was being taken up working to uphold the uniform policy - time that would be better spent on instruction. "We understand there was a long process for implementing the dress code, however Grandview Middle School believes our students and parents are capable of making decisions to meet the building expectations," Heinle wrote in a letter to the school board. "We have the expection that our students will dress for success and we want them to begin making those decisions now that will help support them in their secondary years."

District moves to electronic athletics registration. The Grandview School District is excited to announce it is bringing an electronic athletic registration process on board. At both the high school and middle school level, student athletes will now complete their sports registrations online, using Family ID. This will mean students who play multiple sports won't have to register every season. The system allows students and families to input their information once, while making it easy to update information and keep track of students. Click here for more information on how to register using Family ID. You can find a link to the Family ID site on both the high school and middle school homepages, as well as on the Atheletics pages for both schools.
