April - Grant Community School E-Newsletter
Message to our Families
Dear Grant Parents,
We sincerely appreciate the grace you have shown us as we transitioned back to Hybrid Learning this Spring. We are very grateful to have your little ones back in school with us and we are working hard to maximize the precious time we have with them in-person. Our students have shown a great level of respect for others' space, health and emotional well being. We are proud to say they are consistently working on being good citizens in our communities. Along with that, we thank you for reminding them that their face coverings must stay on at all times. As we turn the corner to the last 12 weeks of school, we encourage you to keep talking through mixed feelings with your children. This open line of communication has been important here at school and we know this begins at home.
Thank you, parents!
School Hours 10:30am - 3:30pm Tuesday- Friday

Updates for 2020-21 academic calendar
In February, the Salem and Keizer communities were hit with severe inclement weather, causing widespread power outages across the district. With students and staff accessing classes through comprehensive distance learning, ongoing power outages impacted the ability for classes to continue, causing a week of school closures for our students.
Due to these school closures and the transition to hybrid learning for students in grades K-12, the district needed to make the following adjustments to the 2020-21 academic calendar:
Key changes for SKPS parents/guardians:
- April 8 – School day for Elementary/ No student contact day for Secondary (EDGE program continues as previously scheduled)
- April 9 – School day for Elementary/ No student contact day for Secondary (EDGE program continues as previously scheduled)
- April 12 – Updated to full student support Monday, previously partial grading day for secondary
- June 8 – Additional day added for SKPS high school graduation ceremonies
- June 17 – Last day for students, previously June 15
The full updated academic calendar, including a breakdown of key dates for parents and guardians, is available on our district website.
April Grizzly Pride Assembly & Spirit Day
This day is also our school spirit day. The theme for April is Decorated Mask Day! Students can decorate their own masks and wear them to school on Thursday and Friday.
