  • School dismissal times changing for 2015-2016 school year. This fall Friday dismissal times are changing throughout the Grandview School District. Friday will continue to be an early release day, as has been the district's recent tradition. However, those dismissal times will be about an hour later than they traditionally have been. The change is due to a decision recently made our legislature. The legislature recently increased the mandatory instruction time a student receives from 1,000 hours a year to 1,026. The added time on Friday will allow for the district to meet these requirements. Dismissal times are not changing for Monday through Thursday. Friday is the only day affected.
