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

Happy Friday!  We are heading into our final week of school for our students!  There is much to celebrate. Seniors will take their final graduation walk through our schools on May 24 for all of our students to wish them well.   Next Friday, the staff will come together at 1:30 PM at the GHS auditorium to honor our retirees and staff’s years of service.   Honors and awards night will be held on May 27, 2023 at 7:00 PM for our seniors.   Many scholarships and recognitions will be given.   Finally we will host the 2023 commencement ceremony on May 28, 2023 at 2:00 PM at GHS.   This school year has flown by!

23-24 School Registration


The 2023- 2024 Online Registration is now open. Every student needs to complete online registration each year. This ensures that all information in Infinite Campus is up to date, especially in case of an emergency.


For current families, please log in to your parent portal account, select the 2023-2024 year, and follow the prompts. If you are having issues logging into your account, please reach out to me at katie.osborn@grinnell.k12.org.


For New Families or students who are not currently enrolled in the district, click HERE.


Parents will want to select New Student Registration and then select 2023-2024. The first series of questions will ask for the parent's first name, last name, email, confirm email, enter the "I'm not a robot code," and a separate link will be sent to the email provided. That link is the Infinite Campus link and official registration. Parents will not need an activation code. If asked for one before starting, they selected the incorrect area and will need to select NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION.
