  • Stay informed and in touch. Tell us about any COVID contact and help keep our school community healthy and safe

    GSD STAFF AND FAMILIES: As our virtual learning cushion draws to a close, we need to get ready to welcome all of our hybrid and small learning cohort students back into the building. That means, we NEED to know about you and your family's health. In order for our virtual cushion to work, we need to be able to ensure that anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive or has COVID-like symptoms is staying isolated. Please CALL YOUR SCHOOL if you, your child or anyone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19, has COVID-like symptoms or has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive or has COVID-like symptoms. STAY INFORMED AND IN TOUCH.

  • Two weeks of remote learning to follow Winter Break

    As we all look forward to the holidays, we want our staff, families and community to know that things are going to look a little different when we come back from our scheduled Winter Break. It’s with much thought and out of an abundance of caution that the Grandview School District has decided to create a virtual learning cushion. Instead of inviting all of our hybrid and Small Cohort Learning Model students immediately back into the classroom following the holiday break, we will have all students start back from break in remote learning. All students will be in remote learning from Monday, Jan. 4, through Monday, Jan. 18. Our hybrid and Small Cohort Learning Model students will return back to the buildings on Tuesday, Jan. 19. If you are already in remote learning, there will not be a change to your schedule. Click the headline to read more.

  • Getting ready for winter weather - check out our new inclement weather plan

    Inclement Weather Plans for 2020-21 We want to share our inclement weather plan with families. Now that temperatures have started to dip, we want to prepare everyone for what will happen if weather conditions become unsafe. Traditionally, we would check road conditions in the early hours and make a decision to either have two-hour delay for the day or cancel classes. This year - it's different. We will still have crews up in the dark, early morning hours to check road conditions, but there won't be any two-hour delays or snow days this year. Instead, if weather conditions are unsafe, everyone will transition to virtual learning for the day. That means any student who would have been in building that day - our hybrid learners or our students who are participating in the Small Cohort Learning Model - would, instead, take their classes virtually (from home) that day. Students would log into their Google Classroom or Canvas accounts and attend classes virtually. Students who regularly attend classes virtually would continue to do so. Announcements for a transition to virtual learning due to inclement weather will be made in the same way snow days traditionally are announced. We will send out a robo call, it will be posted to our website, sent out as a push notification, posted to social media and sent to the news media.

  • Families remember that engagement is important, even when traveling

    Any families who are planning any long absences this winter need to be sure to fill out a Preplanned Absence Form, the form is available from your child’s school. Filling out the form and creating a plan are important to ensure your child is able to continue their education while you’re out of town. With education looking different this year, our school administrators will be happy to help you and your child find a way for them to stay engaged while you’re away. We want to make sure that your student is able to stay on track and doesn’t fall behind, even if your family is planning on traveling. Remember, every day and every period matters. Again, be sure to fill out a Preplanned Absence Form with your school, without the form all absences will be unexcused. Stay connected. Stay Engaged. Strive Together.

  • Community Wellness Tracking Community Wellness Tracking. During Winter Break (Dec. 21-Jan. 1) and our two-week virtual learning cushion (Jan. 4-18) we are going to ask families of students in hybrid or Small Cohort Learning to still notify us if your student feels ill, someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19 or is showing symptoms or if your student is identified as a close contact.

    This reporting is the first step in ensuring the people in our buildings are healthy when we transition back. No matter how small the symptom may seem, it’s always better to let us know how your student is feeling and play it safe.

    Click here to notify us through our Community Wellness Tracking.

    Seguimiento del Bienestar Comunitario. Durante las vacaciones de invierno (12/21-1/1) y nuestro cojín de aprendizaje virtual de dos semanas (1/4-1/18), vamos a pedirles a las familias de estudiantes en aprendizaje híbrido o de cohorte pequeño que aún nos notifiquen si su estudiante se siente enfermo, si alguien en su hogar sale positivo por COVID-19 o muestra síntomas, o si su estudiante es identificado como contacto cercano.

    Este informe es el primer paso para garantizar que las personas en nuestros edificios estén saludables cuando regresemos. No importa que pequeño pueda parecer el síntoma, siempre es mejor hacernos saber cómo se siente su estudiante y actuar de forma segura.

    Haga clic aquí para notificarnos a través de nuestro Seguimiento de bienestar comunitario.

  • The Grandview School District is partnering with the state to bring free internet service to our families. Washington’s K–12 Internet Access Program allows students and their families who previously didn’t have internet access to connect at no cost to you. There will be no credit check or denial based on past-due bills. Families who take part in the program will never receive a bill.

    The program is being paid for through the Washington’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, using CARES Act money, which is Covid-19 related grant funding.

    Through the program families have a choice of either free broadband internet connectivity where available or a free mobile hotspot for internet connectivity where available. 

    Your family can participate in the program if your child is eligible for free or reduced-price meals through the school and you did not have internet connectivity in your home before August 2020.

    If you are approved for the K–12 Internet Access Program, internet access will be provided to you, at no cost, through June 30, 2021. If you want to continue with internet service after June 30, 2021, it will become your financial responsibility. To continue, you will need to contact your internet provider and make arrangements for this. Otherwise, your service will automatically end when the program ends.

    Click here to apply for Presidio Washington's K-12 Internet Access Program. Once your fill out the enrollment form, you will receive a response within three business days. Once you are approved you will sign up with an internet service program.

    The deadline to apply has been extended to March 31, 2021 and the referral code is WA2020. 

    Your participation in the program will not be shared outside of your School District and Washington’s K–12 education department.
