Dear Grinnell Newburg Board of Education, Staff, Families and Friends:


We are only two weeks away from the first day of school! We look forward to welcoming you back to the 2019-20 school year. I know that the administrative team is energized and ready for our students, staff and families. We miss you over the summer! There is nothing better than that first day seeing our students ready to learn!  We look forward to greeting you soon!

Opening Day for Staff:  August 20th School Offices and District Office Closed

The District and School building Offices will be closed on August 20th due to staff opening day activities. All staff will be participating in Professional Development therefore we ask that if need assistance to please come see us or call us before or after this day! This day is very important for all staff, administrative assistants, teachers, cooks, custodians, and administrators to kick off the school year through active engagement activities to build our team and focus for our students. Thank you for your flexibility!



Please be sure that you register your student on-line if you have not already done so. We have about 65% of the district registered. This important step will ensure that your student will be assigned to a class or schedule.
