Do you & your students want to know what's for lunch? Keep up-to-date with mobile app. Remember, finding out what's for lunch or breakfast throughout the district is as easy as checking your phone. This year the school district has started using Health-e-Living to create and broadcast our menus and a part of that is the My School Menus app. The app is available in the Apple App Store or the Google Play store under My School Menus.

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.
