Dear Grandview family,
As I write this, our community has just experienced our traditional Candle Lighting and Graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2020 in a beautifully unique way. In looking ahead to what the world has in store for the Classes of 2021 and beyond, we know that we will rise as a community to meet both the challenges and triumphs ahead.
Our detailed physical campus and learning continuity preparations continue as announcements from health and governmental officials are released. Our planning aligns with all applicable guidelines and prioritizes our school mission by providing a full range of personalization options. Please review the Phase I Fall Re-Entry document linked below. As you visualize your family's experience next fall, know that you may select different learning options for each child. Families who have re-enrolled will receive a questionnaire to be completed for each student regarding your preferences for the fall semester.
We thank you for the trust you have placed in Grandview and are working to make your child's experience safe, engaging, challenging, and joyful. This has been a difficult time for families around the world, and we are moving through it together. I hope that your family will have an opportunity to spend your summer doing what you love with those you love. Please contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like to connect. I miss you all and can't wait to see you again soon.
Carpe Diem & Warm Regards,
Jacqueline R. Westerfield
Head of School
