What’s New at Grand Isle School?

Hello! This summer has been no stranger to great weather and the opportunity to take advantage of outdoor fun and recreation that Vermont offers. I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the summertime. With school beginning in just a week or so, I wanted to communicate some important dates, and highlight some important changes this coming school year.

Our first day of school is Wednesday August 27th beginning at 7:40 for K-5th graders, and 8:40 for 6-8th graders. Please note it is a half day. Also, Tuesday evening (8/26) there will be an Ice Cream Social and Open House from 5:30-7:00. We will begin promptly at 5:30 by introducing the staff and faculty and then enjoying one of summer’s favorite pastimes, eating ice cream! Students and families will have the opportunity to take a self-tour of the building and visit their classroom and teacher.

A school bus survey has been designed to gather information regarding how your child(ren) will be getting to and from school this year. This information is important and will help us make adjustments within the first 2 weeks the bus routes are in use. The survey can be found below under July and August files and links.

Lastly, I want to inform you about some important changes this school year. As mentioned, students in grades K-5 will begin their school day at 7:40 am and be dismissed at 2:25 pm. Grade 6-8 students will begin at 8:40 am and be dismissed at 3:25 pm. Other important changes include a daily morning advisory for students in grades 6-8, and a daily 30 minute recess for all students in grades K-8.

I want to acknowledge the importance of the role you play in your child’s learning and the overall success of our school. Thank you for supporting Grand Isle School and helping to create an enriching and supportive learning environment for all. I look forward to seeing you around the school!

Eric Arnzen
Principal at Grand Isle School
