March - Grant Community School E-Newsletter

Message from Mr. Morris

Dear Parents/Guardians-

We are so excited to welcome your children back to in-person instruction within our hybrid learning model. We know that it is only two days per week and wish that we could go back full time, but we are thankful that students are now filling the building again. Just a couple reminders for you to share with your children about safety and expectations during the spring: masks are required at school (inside the building and at recess), social distancing is still important, hand washing and/or sanitizing often, and not coming to school when you are sick. We want all our staff and students to remain healthy and free from COVID-19. Lastly, we want to thank all of you for your continued support and flexibility during these ever-changing times. We will get through this together and be stronger because of it!

Thank you!

10:30am - 3:30pm Tuesday- Friday
