Families of Grandview, your teachers miss you! Click here to watch a video to hear a short message from each of them.

Fundraiser Pick-up Information

Grandview Families,

We were originally going to schedule the Steffanelli's fundraiser pick-up for next week. Unfortunately, due to the Governor's stay-at-home directive for Erie County, we will no longer be able to accommodate a pick-up at Grandview. You will, however, be able to pick up your order directly from Steffanelli's anytime between now and Easter. They are located on 2054 W. 8th Street. They are open between 8:00-4:30 and they ask that you call them @ 814-459-2451, when you are in the parking lot, as they cannot allow customers actually in the store. Thank you.

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRINCIPALS


Hello Grandview Families,

As we continue to work through the current school closure, please rest assured that our school district will keep your family informed through our school district website. Be sure to check both our website and the MTSD homepage frequently for the most up-to-date information. Please be reminded that schools are closed and no student is required to complete specific assignments and no work will be graded. If you would like your child(ren) to work on enrichment activities as a way to utilize some of their free time, please click on the link below:

https://www.mtsd.org/parents/parent-resources

If you should have any questions, please feel free to e-mail anytime at:

jablonski@mtsd.org

plaster@mtsd.org

Sincerely,

Joseph Jablonski, Principal

Jamie Plaster, Assistant Principal


FAQ’s regarding work completion while closed:

  • Is my child expected to complete specific assignments during the school closure?
    • No. The only information we will post would be for review and enrichment purposes. Your child(ren) will not be expected to provide any assignments upon return to school.
  • Why did my child(ren) bring home their books and notebooks?
    • The decision to have students bring home their books was made prior to the state closing all schools.
  • Please do not work ahead.
    • The plan is that instruction will begin where it stopped on March 13th. Although working ahead seems like a reasonable thing to do, not all students will be doing this.
    • An option is having your child review information already introduced earlier in the year/course.
