How will I notify the school of my learning option selection for my child?
Starting on August 24, families will receive a phone call to select either in-person or virtual learning for their child. Families with multiple children at the same school will be asked to select one choice, and then will receive a follow-up call to confirm choices for each child. Two weeks prior to the first day of in-person learning, calls will be made to confirm the initial selection. Families can use this opportunity to consider the latest health data to keep their initial selection or make a new commitment. Commitments must last through an entire grading period (six-weeks). Parents will be asked to select one of the following options:
OPTION 1: On-Campus Learning
OPTION 2: Virtual Learning
My phone number and address have changed. How can I ensure I am receiving school and district communications?
I would love for my child to attend Grissom next year. When will enrollment take place?
