Spring Break Extension Update#4

This is David Daigneault, Superintendent of Grenada School District. In an effort to provide additional ways to support our students, I am pleased to share that instructional packets will be available online or by curbside pickup. On Monday, March 23rd instructional packets for each grade level may be accessed at clever.com, or persons may drive to each individual school to pick up a hard copy. For more instructions for using clever.com, see the instructions beneath this update on this website or facebook.

Please note, these online packets contain a large amount of material, up to 150 pages, that will require printing.

Please understand these packets are optional and will not be graded but are merely our way of providing your child a means of continuing his/her instruction.

Administrators and Teachers continue working tirelessly to provide an uninterrupted education for the 2019-2020 school year. During this unprecedented time, we want to work together with parents to provide Grenada’s children the best education possible. Together we will get through this, and our children will continue to thrive even in the most difficult of times

Your principal or supervisor will be in communication with you to request your help on a variety of issues we must perform in our district.

We do not know how long this situation will continue. It is vital that we make good decisions in the best interests of our students.
