What’s happening at East Grand School District
Superintendant, East Grand School District
Week of Dec. 5
• Winter weather: With winter suddenly upon us we want to remind everybody of our emergency procedures as well as some safety reminders. If school is cancelled we will notify all local radio stations as well as KOA and 9NEWS. We will also post cancellation information on our district web page and send out information through PowerSchool. Please make sure that your email and cell phone numbers are updated in PowerSchool so any notifications will be sent to you. We will try to call any cancellation early but that cannot always be the case. On adverse weather days that school is in session, which it most often will be, please do not leave your child at a bus stop unattended in the morning. In adverse conditions when school is not canceled, you may be uncomfortable sending your student to school, keeping your child home is always your choice, but please notify the school that they will not be in attendance. The student will need to make up any missed work but will not be punished or judged in any manner.
