This is Dr. David Daigneault, Superintendent of Grenada School District.
We have no credible information about a safety issue today. I do want to point out the originator of a false statement that causes chaos will have serious consequences. If somebody has reliable information about a safety concern, bring it to the office.
False rumors continue to emerge. Please know these are only rumors and have no basis in fact. Bad actors continue to invent false claims and spread them via cell phones and social media.
We ask that parents, teachers, and students remain calm. Please do not react to rumors on social media. Rest assured, we will remain vigilant and continue to work with law enforcement agencies to verify and prosecute all threatening statements.
If you have substantial evidence of wrongdoing, please call the GSD tip line at 866-473-8477.
his message is to notify parents and students that our campus police force has been working diligently with the Grenada Police, the Grenada Sheriff's Department, FBI, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, and Mississippi Office of Homeland Security to locate the source of threatening comments made over the past few days. This team of investigators has made much progress today, and we have added extra security to our school campuses. We can confidently report that our school is safe, and we look forward to seeing students return tomorrow for a normal day of learning.
We will continue to monitor this situation with the utmost seriousness as we strive to provide a safe, wholesome learning environment for your children.
Thank you for continued patience as this matter is resolved.

After a significant and steady decline in both school district and county COVID-19 cases, the Grenada School District is now lifting our mask mandate. We will return to optional mask-wearing for our staff and students. Masks are strongly encouraged, along with practicing social distance.
The following exceptions for staff and students are:
Masks are to be worn in the halls, auditoriums, and any other indoor places where students are gathered in large capacities.
The mask mandate will resume for at least one week after Thanksgiving Break.
The mask mandate will resume for at least one week after Christmas Break.
We will continue to watch our transmission data in both the school district and county. If the numbers remain low, we will return to optional mask-wearing. However, if the data suggests an increase in cases, we will return to the mask mandate in an effort to protect staff and students.
Thank you for your continued support and patience as we continue to provide a quality education for our students while maintaining the safest environment possible.
