  • 04/13/22 - Summer Storage for Students' Belongings

    April 13, 2022
     
    Dear Parents:
     
    It is time to start planning for the summer and storing student belongings.  If your child plans to return to school in the fall, students may keep their belongings on campus. The packing process begins in early May. Boxes for storage are available through the school gift shop. Each student may have up to 7 boxes, a refrigerator, and one other item that does not fit in a large storage box.
     
    The labeled boxes with your child’s name are safely stored in the dorms. In August, a moving company comes on campus and transports the boxes to the student’s chosen room for the 2022-2023 school year. The fee, $130, will be charged after their return in the fall.
     
    For those students not returning to Grier next year, a shipping company will be on campus on May 24 & May 25, 2022, to help the students ship their boxes. Students will need a credit card for the transaction.
     
     Please note that all students must be packed before their departure. Mrs. Porter and the housemother are here to help with that process. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
     
     
    Sincerely,
    Gina Borst

  • 03/11/22 - Spring Break Return Information

    March 11, 2022

    Dear Parents,

    The winter session certainly has gone by quickly at Grier School. I cannot believe the students are leaving for spring break, hopefully, this recent winter storm will not be an issue for travel. When everyone returns, there is a renewed feeling on campus as the temperature outside is warmer, the sun is shining longer, and the excitement about spring builds. I have included a few upcoming special events in this letter, but please continue to look on the website calendar for more updates.

    As we have all weathered this pandemic, I am also encouraged by the updated CDC guidelines and the shift toward a less restrictive environment for everyone. To that end, the school asks that every student return from spring break with a negative Covid test result (it can be a rapid or home test). The school will only test those students who do not return with a test result from the break.

    Moving forward, students who are vaccinated will not be tested after returning from a weekend trip or activity unless they have symptoms. As for wearing masks, the school will continue to require masks when in a group setting such as a classroom or at school meetings. Masks will not be required for afternoon activities or when students are outside. As mandates change, the school will keep parents updated.

    Feel free to reach out to me with any questions. I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable spring break.

    Regards,

    Gina Borst
    Head of School
