  • We are excited to begin welcoming more high school students back to the building

    The Grandview School District is excited to announce that we will be expanding our Small Cohort Learning at Grandview High School. On Tuesday, Feb. 2, the Yakima Health District announced a recommendation allowing high schools in Yakima County to open their buildings for hybrid learning. Of course, working to bring as many of our high school students back as safely possible will take some planning and time. According to the Yakima Health District recommendation, we will need to submit a plan to their agency, have onsite visits from the health district and continue the strict safety measures we already have in place in our elementary and middle schools. With all that in mind, we have decided to begin the work of bringing high school students back into the building by first expanding our Small Cohort Learning. Click the headline to learn 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.

  • 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.
