Dolphin Dispatch

for the week of September 21, 2020

Hi Graebner Families,

I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weekend. Below are two recent items. The first is the letter that Mr. Monroe sent out on Friday regarding the process of bringing students back to face to face instruction. In addition, I included the link to the PTO website so that you are only one click away to the information that our wonderful PTO provides. Hope to see you all soon.

New School Hours/Lunch for Graebner and Virtual Academy

Our school hours changed slightly. Our new school hours:

8:20 am - 3:10 pm


Students in the Elementary Virtual Academy will follow the Early Elementary Schools start and end times. Same hours as Graebner - 8:20-3:10.


School wide consistent lunch time 11:30-12:10 - this is a slight change so that all Graebner students are consistent with the Virtual Academy students.
