Freshman Orientation

On behalf of the administration and staff, I would like to extend a warm welcome to the entire Class of 2025. You are about to embark on four of the most exciting and memorable years of your life. Your journey will include opportunities to enhance your learning, meet new friends and discover more about yourself. Like most pursuits, the level of individual success will depend largely on the amount of time and effort you choose to devote to each school day. At Grant we Keep it RED because we believe that respectfulness, engagement, and dependability are the keys to that success. The staff at Grant Community High School is committed to providing you with opportunities to be successful, and we look forward to all the wonderful ways you will take advantage of those opportunities.  

The opportunities at Grant begin with your Freshman Orientation. On Wednesday, August 4, 2021, all freshmen are expected to attend the orientation program from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Students will receive their schedules upon arrival. The program allows students to go through the on-site material pick-up process, tour the facility with their Big Dawg Mentors, meet our co-curricular sponsors, and be welcomed by the administration. Time will be available for students to locate their lockers, put books away, and get acquainted with their class schedule and room assignments. The agenda, transportation letter, and transportation schedules for this orientation program is enclosed.

Finally, as we return to full in person learning for the fall of 2021, a District communication will be forthcoming at the end of July to all families detailing Grant’s Back to School Learning Plan. Within those plans, procedures and protocols will explain COVID-19 mitigation efforts including social distancing, face covering, and sanitation practices. Please be on the lookout for that communication as those procedures will apply to Freshman Orientation.  

Again, as an entire school community we look forward to seeing all freshmen on August 4 as we kick off the school year together and begin your high school experience. Welcome to the Bulldog family.

Keep it RED,

Jeremy Schmidt
